Like an apparition from Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, she was hovered ostentatiously behind basically every celebrity on the red carpet, ominously holding up a tray of Fiji water bottles and serving up looks.

The Internet loved her, and she's already slated to be the hottest Halloween costume of 2019.

She's already done several segments on television as a result of her viral fame.

Does this count as a @j_corden photobomb? Tune in tonight!

Most of the celebrities she photobombed thought it was a hilarious publicity stunt and attention-grabbing move.

And, needless to say, Fiji Water is thrilled with all the publicity.

But at least one celebrity was not amused. On Tuesday night, Jamie Lee Curtis took to Twitter to slam Fiji Water Girl for brazenly sliding into her photo after she intentionally tried to get her out of it.

"So, I specifically moved away from the blatant Fiji & Moet promotions," she wrote. "I knew there was a photographer poised and I moved as I didn't want to be doing advertising for either. The sponsors of events need to get permission from people before they try to take their picture with them."

From a business perspective, we totally understand her gripe. Still, free promotion aside, we wonder if she wasn't also a teeny bit annoyed at the caption for the photo, which reads, "Jaimie Lee Curtis was in danger of being upstaged by the Fiji Water girl." Oof!
