Be very careful what options you click on your Uber app, especially if you’re a celebrity, or you could end up in an unexpected carpool situation like Kristen Bell did this week.

The Frozen actress mistakenly thought the “pool” option on Uber was a fun summer reference, until her driver pulled over to pick up other passengers during a trip home. Luckily for the Internet, she tweeted the entire unexpected carpool experience.

Once Bell’s driver picked up her new companions, things got a little awkward.

In the end, Bell made it home safe and sound. And UberPool couldn’t have asked for better promotion. Perhaps it should just start sending unsuspecting celebrities on surprise carpools all over L.A. and see what happens.
