“Recognitions” / Memorable Fancies #1514

Cléo Victoire, a famous pop singer, enters a casual restaurant. The jukebox happens to be playing her latest hit. She strolls among the tables, wondering if anyone will recognize her, squeal with delight, perhaps ask for an autograph. But no one pays any attention to her at all.

Worse: it soon becomes apparent that no one is listening to her song, either.
