Michelle Williams struggles to mask her disappointment over not being recognized in a new Uber One commercial.

The Australia ad, which dropped on Monday, March 4, begins with Williams, 44, clutching a cup of coffee as she walks through a park. While making her way over to a bench, the former Destiny’s Child member opens her Uber app, which displays how much money she had saved.

“OK, OK, my Uber One membership savings don’t disappoint,” Williams says out loud as a woman sitting beside her gives her a brief glance. “You know what is disappointing? I was in one of the most iconic girl groups and no one recognizes me.”

After the admission, a man in the background calls the name “Michelle.” Williams, excited that someone is attempting to get her attention, smiles and turns her head before realizing he’s addressing something else entirely.

After Destiny’s Child released the 1999 album, The Writing’s on the Wall, Williams and Farrah Franklin joined the group, replacing former members LaTavia Roberson and LaToya Luckett. Months later, Franklin, 42, exited and left Destiny’s Child with Williams, Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland.

After Monday’s advertisement dropped, Williams took to social media to call it “hilarious.”

“I get to be in on the jokes. Certain jokes y’all know I don’t care too much about, especially 24 years later. There are just certain things I don’t care about anymore,” she said via Instagram on Monday. “So what a cool way to be like, ‘The joke ain’t on me, it’s really on you.’ You know, I don’t care. So that was so much fun.”
