Oh the Fanboy Fail! It happens to the best of us. Sometimes even when people around us are happy as a clam we get the proverbial shaft. Doh!
That was kind of what this day was like. Scotty and I are both huge fans of Y Tu Mamá También. It is one of the best films I have seen, it’s an amazing coming of age story and I just love it.
One of the stars of Y Tu Mamá También is Gael García Bernal and he was out promoting a new film at a local talk show. Well, I had to go.
Now, I had gotten Gael García Bernal before on my mini poster for Y Tu Mama’ Tambien and he was cordial and there were no problems. So, I figure hey, this is going to be easy!
When I arrived there were about 10-15 people waiting, again, not too bad. I can’t complain. Scotty was there with his DVD cover. I had a couple vintage magazines for Gael García Bernal and generally speaking when you have older stuff or rare stuff the celebrity likes it.
So, the clock was ticking.
It was a tad chilly, but you know I’m not going to complain. It was nice not being sandwiched in the barricade for once and herded in like cattle.
Finally the door opens and out pops Gael García Bernal.
Maybe it’s me, and seriously I never noticed this before, but Gael García Bernal is a short guy. I didn’t notice it before but wow, I did today. He walks on over and honestly, I hate when there are only a few people and the publicist acts like there’s a fire. “We gotta go! We Gotta go!” Really? Who’s about to die? Cause all it takes is picking up a pen signing a few things and heading out. It’s not THAT HARD… Let’s repeat… IT’S NOT THAT HARD!
Well, Gael García Bernal is apparently really picky about what he signs, because he signed Scotty’s DVD, much to his dissatisfaction as it was a black pen on a dark cover. I have my vintage magazine out and I’m like Gael García Bernal can you please sign the magazine.
I think he might have said nope! and walked right on by. LOL… I was like seriously.
For the 10 – 15 of us I think he signed eight things.
Because you know why? He’s in a hurry! He had to go!
Yeah… And guess what, those vintage Interview magazines are STILL sitting unsigned in my magazine collection! Doh!
Ah well… What can you do right?
Until next time kids…
