SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. The Carhenge Monument in Alliance receives thousands of visitors a year, but few are as widely known as actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.
The male and female duo, known for their roles on “That ’70s Show,” visited Carhenge on July 6. Kutcher, a native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, posted a photo of himself and Kunis at the monument on Instagram. He captioned it “Found the original vista cruiser,” and attached an on-site station wagon to the infamous car at the show.
As of Monday afternoon, the Instagram post had more than 264,000 likes. Carhenge and others also shared the post on Facebook, which aroused a lot of interest.
Kaytlin Norris, Alliance’s executive administrative assistant for tourism, expressed gratitude for the couple’s visit.
“I am ecstatic that they came. “I had to do a double survey when I saw that social media post,” she said.
The couple’s visit came shortly after Tripadvisor acknowledged Carhenge for its consistently positive user experiences.
