Ellen Degeneres forgot her government-issued ID and, despite her famous face and unmissable personality, was not allowed to enter the White House on Tuesday.

The comedian is in Washington, D.C., to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. This morning she tweeted that she’s stuck outside, waiting for further instructions.

But the story has a happy ending: An hour later, she tweeted that she’d made it in. To toast the achievement, Degeneres recorded a quick Mannequin Challenge video.

She didn’t snowball to 63 million followers for nothing.
