“Thanksgiving dinner is at my house at three. Let me know if you’re coming, I hope to see you all, “is a message Jamal Hinton received from an unknown sender a few days before the biggest American national holiday. To the question “Who is it?”, He received an unusual answer – “Well, your grandmother.”
Suspecting it wasn’t his grandmother, Hinton asked her for a photo to confirm it. After Wanda Dench sent him her selfie, the young man still asked if he could come to dinner, and got the answer from which a viral post on Twitter was born in 2016 – “Of course you can. That’s what grandmothers do, they feed everyone. “
Since then, Hinton has been attending a dinner hosted by an “unknown grandmother” on Thanksgiving, so Netflix has decided to make the film The Thanksgiving Text, which will immortalize this touching story.
“We are excited to share our story with the world and hope it will encourage more people to build relationships they would not otherwise. We are so blessed to have found true friendship from the wrong text message, “said Hinton and Dench.
According to The Verge, many films were made thanks to viral posts on social networks. Some of the more famous are #TheStory, Bad Ass, That Awkward Moment, and the fact that the popular Deadpool would not have seen the light of day if the leaked recordings had not reached the public and raised a lot of dust on the Internet.
