This is Marissa Hooper from Texas, along with her mother, Kathryn. Marissa is currently in college, but still had time to work on a pet project around the house. In this case, with the emphasis on "pet."
Marissa told Teen Vogue that it started when she and her sister were hanging out. "One day we were sitting at home wondering if our parents looked at the pictures they have of us up when we were gone, or if they would even notice if we moved them," she said. "So I took it a step further and thought it would be funny to recreate them just close enough that it wasn't blatantly obvious to see at first glance, but eventually they would surely see that something was off!"
So Marissa recreated several photos around the home by dressing up Dixie in the right outfit. Then she would take a picture of Dixie, and put it in place of the photo. For instance, there was this photo of Dixie that was put in the place of her older sister's photo from when she graduated kindergarten.
Marissa also recreated this vintage photo of her grandmother. She said it took a while before her mother first noticed Dixie was now in one of the photos. "It took her over two weeks to notice the first time, and she embarrassingly came across it when showing company around the house," she said.
Her mom even texted Marissa when she was found the photos. Kathryn seems pretty mad at her daughter, but then added that "(Dixie's) graduation picture came out better than yours." So it looks like she got her revenge.
Twitter swiftly responded to the photos, with over 30,000 retweets and over 70,000 likes. And, naturally, it also got plenty of replies. When you've got funny pics featuring a cute animal, there's a good chance that the internet will like it.
It's possible that Dixie was the only adorable pet to not have her own Instagram account. Fortunately, that's all change. Marissa promptly corrected the matter, and now pics of Dixie can be found here.
The public also demands more pics of Dixie being swapped into photos, and Marissa says she'll oblige. "I think I find the most humor in keeping my mom on her toes every time I leave," she said. She imagines her mom will be "closely inspecting her shelves for my next recreation, which is inevitably coming."
