No people, this is not a joke.
Before I show you the video, let me give you a little background. Back in October, Maroon 5 was holding this contest called “The Daylight Project.” They invited their fans to submit videos to them to be used in their video for the song “Daylight.” When I saw that I instantly said to my friend Samantha – “We have to do this!” And so we did.
About a day after our submission, we get an email from Maroon 5 (and we freaked out) asking us to fill out a release form for the video. We assumed they sent that to everyone who submitted one.
Two months go by and we didn’t hear anything so we assumed we didn’t make the cut. I mean, how many videos did they get? Thousands from all over the world, I’m sure. So we were upset, but not surprised.
Then, yesterday, we discover the video was being premiered live after Maroon 5 appeared on E! News. We missed it, but we watched it this afternoon. After about three minutes we were bummed out about not being in it because it was cool seeing all their fans in one video. Then… we saw ourselves. Twice. And if you thought we freaked out after seeing the email, you have no idea.
That was the absolute coolest thing that has ever happened to me. This band, who I adore, saw our video and picked us to be in it.. even just for five seconds (literally.. it’s about five seconds if that). Words cannot explain how I feel.
So, here’s the video. If you want to just see me and Samantha, we’re at 6:10 and 6:21. But feel free to watch the whole thing. I’ll screenshot us from one point in the video. Don’t be jealous. But if you are… I don’t blame you! 🙂
Awesome, right? Pretty sure my life was made.
