This is one of my best friends, Dylan, and another friend Ari.
Let’s get a little backstory before this picture was taken. Dylan is a huge fan of Hoodie Allen. Dylan does not know Ari. Ari does not know who Hoodie Allen is (SERIOUSLY?). Ari looks sort of like Hoodie Allen. Enter alcohol and a terrible friend (that’s me).
This is how it went down, more or less:
ROB: Dylan! Holy crap! Did you see him walk in??
DYLAN: Roooooob I loveeee you man!!!!! Come here…Come here! Who?! Who came in? *giggles because the word came*
ROB: Hoodie Allen! He’s in DC recording some samples for his new Album!
DYLAN: *shits pants, cries from happiness, euphoria begins* Gasp
ROB: Common man, follow me, he’s really down to earth and he loves his fans. He’d love to meet you and have a beer.
DYLAN: Speechless still, follows me.
ROB: Hey Hoodie, this is Dylan, he a huge fan of everything you do.
ARI: Uh…thanks man!
DYLAN: Hey man, I really appreciate what you do. Thanks for everything you do, I really appreciate it.
ROB: Hey you two, why don’t we get a picture!
Not long after that (but embarrassingly long enough for my friends) the jig was up. Dylan literally had his heart broken, and after I first introduced him to “Hoodie Allen” I felt like a complete jerkfaced asshat.
Hoodie, if you’re out there, will you give my buddy a shout out? He’s a big fan.
For all of you who don’t know, this is actually Hoodie Allen.
