It's 3 AM: Do you know where your stock footage is?

Casey Knowles was a featured extra in a 1999 Burlington Northern Railroad TV spot.

Getty Images now owns the footage, which has been used in a Hillary Clinton campaign ad (known as the "red phone" ad, even though the phone Hillary answers is white):

Sleeping cutie...

Casey, who turns 18 on April 18, was surprised to see herself on TV when she watched a spoof of the ad on "The Daily Show." a beauty

Too bad for Hillary that Casey is not only an Obama supporter, but also worked actively for the Obama campaign in Washington State, where she served as a precinct captain.

Irony: not only delicious, but potentially star-making.
