Here’s Matt with a fan at a sake bar in godknowswhere NYC.
The admirer had this to say:
“It was great seeing him, and obviously all my friends and I were completely starstruck, but at the same time it was a little uncomfortable! He wouldn’t smile for pictures. Not even a half-smile!
And the demands he made! He insisted that we’d scream (and I mean SCREAM) sake chants and bang on the table as hard as possible each time we’d be about to chug.
He didn’t even do it himself! He just watched us. He had so much control. We all felt like his puppets, and I think that’s exactly what he wanted. He didn’t even drink the sake…in fact, I’m pretty sure he ordered a gin and tonic. Who does that at a sake bar? Seriously, who does that?”
As per the fan’s request, I made sure to blur out her face and cover up her name in the above image in order to protect her anonymity.
I know I’m just an intern, and I can’t really speak up and express my opinion, but if she wanted to remain anonymous, it didn’t make much sense for her to have posted this to Facebook for TJ and Mike “like” it. But, what do I know?
