British comedian Bisha K Ali was going about her day when she received an unusual text message from a friend in Calgary, Canada.

My old friend who I met at Space Camp in Vancouver in 2006 just messaged me out of the blue:— Bisha K Ali (@bishakali) November 27, 2017
"Hey Bisha! I know this is probably supremely weird but I think I saw a photo of you being used in a public art installation in Calgary..."— Bisha K Ali (@bishakali) November 27, 2017
I start looking up the other photos used in the installation. GUESS WHAT? It says they're random photos taken by the artist of people who used the underpasss. GUESS. WHAT? I never been there.. AND...— Bisha K Ali (@bishakali) November 27, 2017
Calgary has announced they will remove the art installation immediately, and the city is investigating. Authorities have not ruled out the possibility that Besant is in breach of contract and may have to return his $20,000 fee. Of course, none of this would have happened without the expert sleuthing of Bisha Ali and her team of friends.
