Girls star Shoshanna Shapiro’s face can be found all over Sochi! Competing in events like luge, figure skating, and ski jumping. Expect not literally, but thanks to the Tumblr Shoshi Games 2014 Girls fan’s can enjoy humorous photos of their favorite character.

Girls is an American television series that premiered on HBO in 2012. The show follows 4 girls in their 20’s living in New York City. Each girl has their own unique personality, like Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). She’s a mathematics major at New York University. She’s a 21 year old virgin who can be described as rigid and cold…. which people are recognizing as irony with her photos on the COLD SNOWY SLOPES of Sochi!

Here is Shoshanna in action:

Social media enables individuals to share their unique thoughts and creations with the possibility of going viral. Thanks to the power of sharing, retweeting, reblogging, etc. unique users are getting discovered. The Shoshi Games is comical way to connect two very different things together, a TV comedy-drama with a universal event. With the new electronic age celebrities, brands, and athletes are utilizing social media platforms as a powerful micro-blogging tool.  Lena Dunham is a prime example by giving her blessing for the Tumblr  account via Twitter.

I found these pictures hilarious and memorable. I personally love this TV series and the Shoshanna’s facial expressions are fitting not only to her character but the photo! Do you know any other TV series doing something similar?
