Today, March 26th, 2012, I met One Direction. Ok here we go. I went to Muchmusic thinking I was there to be an audience member to participate in a new pilot. There was a small group of about 30-40 girls there, some who I knew from Twitter and some who I met for the first time. (You’re all amazing btw!). When we got there we were told that we would be helping Muchmusic put together a new pilot about “Superfans” and how artists like One Direction, Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers have larger than life fan bases.
For the first hour I stood on the set as an audience member while the VJ Lauren Toyota interviewed a few of us. An hour or so goes by and all of a sudden she tells us that there’s a Skype message from someone. We all looked at a tv screen in front of us and WE SEE THE BOYS. I’ve never screamed so loud in my life.. (Muchmusic staff, I’m sorry for damaging your ears not even a second later, the tv screen starts to glitch and it goes BLANK. We all got so upset. they told us that it was just some technical difficulty they were having with the boys & the skype & they would fix it soon! So we calmed down a bit (but not really) and all of a sudden, instead of the Skype chat being fixed, we all saw these lights flashing to the left of us. We looked, there was a curtain AND THEN THE CURTAIN DROPPED AND WHEN THE CURTAIN DROPPED THE BOYS WERE STANDING RIGHT THERE 10 FT AWAY FROM US and as everyone can imagine, we all went crazy. I was in complete and utter shock; I thought I was imagining things. The boys started walking over to the couch we were all at and started saying hi to us. I was literally a foot away from them, I touched Liam first, then Niall, then said hi/held Louis' hand, & then held Harry's hand & then held Zayn’s hand. As I had Zayn’s hand in mine and said hi to him, he said "hi BABE" and WINKED AT ME. HE FLACKIN CALLED ME BABE AND WINKED.....le dead. OMG, k so after Zayn winked and called me babe I was pretty much on the floor because I couldn’t believe what had just happened. After the extreme fangirling, the boys finally sat down and started being interviewed. They told us that we just got pranked and that they planned with Muchmusic to surprise us!
We were all interacting with one another, Louis and I said "oh yeah" together, Zayn said "party" and I said "party hard" and Zayn responded to me with "oh ya party hard" “all day, all night” .. you know what I mean lol During one of the “pretend” commercial breaks Muchmusic was doing, I tapped Liam on the back and said to him, “Liam, did you notice you made it to two million followers on twitter?”, he then said “Yes I did! It’s amazing, we’ve just been so busy I haven’t had much time to tweet you know?” I responded with, “I know, you boys are super busy, we love you.” I had a mini heart attack after that because I realized I just had a conversation with Liam Payne, our Daddy Directioner, he is truly so sweet and amazing. Then, at one point, Niall was asked about his tweeting to the Kardashian’s and it was brought up that the boys like the Kardashians because they have big butts. Out of nowhere, we all started rapping Baby Got Back... “I LIKE BIG BUTTS AND I CANNOT LIE, YOU OTHA BROTHAS CAN’T DENY, WHEN A GIRL WALKS IN WITH AN ITTIE BITTIE WAIST AND A ROUND THING IN YOUR FACE YOU GET... SPRUNG!” lol and might I add, Louis was REALLY enjoying it!
But anyways, we weren’t allowed to bring phones/cameras into the studio so we couldn’t take pics of them/with them, although Muchmusic did take pictures of the day (and there will be a full hour special airing April 20th)....but honestly, being SO close to them and interacting with them was good enough for me, it didn’t matter if I got a personal picture with them or not.
It was honestly so surreal, I didn’t believe they were actually sitting right in front of me, I’m still in shock hours after the fact. I don’t know how this happened to me or why, but I've said all along that EVERYONE will get their chance to meet the boys and today that happened for me. I didn’t know this was going to happen and I didn’t know they were just going to show up like that which made it that much better because I was so DAMN surprised and honestly IN A STATE OF SHOCK that something like this could ever happen to me. I instantly cried because I was so overcome with emotions and I can say I will never, EVER forget this day. You will ALL get your chance to meet One Direction one day and I truly do believe that because it happened to me. I’m so grateful to MuchMusic and One Direction for planning this out for some of us Directioners. We spent a bit more time getting to sit with the boys listening to them answer questions, but then, they had to leave :( As they were leaving and they stood up to exit the room, I got to touch hands with all the boys once more, telling them I loved them again.
After the boys left we all had a chance to be interviewed about our reaction to being pranked and surprised by MuchMusic and the boys. All of us were still in a complete state of shock, some in tears, some barely being able to speak. Myself and a few others were interviewed together as they were running out of time and we decided to do the inbetweeners dance (the producers promised the dance would be shown in show on April 20th- I hope it is haha). We also sang a bit of WMYB and we did it pretty well I think! Lol
Overall, this was probably one of the best days of my life. It really was amazing and the boys are so sweet, kind, loving, funny and really do care about their fans. I hope they know how much they mean to us and after what they did for us today, I know we mean a lot to them too.
I really can’t say thank you enough to MuchMusic, Louis, Zayn, Niall, Liam and Harry for putting this event together and giving us the opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you SO MUCH for making my dreams come true!
And to MuchMusic, you got me that MUCH closer to my favourite boys ;)
THANK YOU :)
