This summer I had the privilege of seeing Matthew Morrison live in concert. Who is that, you may be wondering, and isn’t this a Rob blog? Yes, yes it is a Rob blog and we’ll get to that. But Matthew Morrison is what they call in the industry as a “triple threat”. You know, talented actor, wonderful singer and an amazing dancer. He is better known as Mr. Schuester, from Glee.
Before the show started I was so excited to see “Mr. Schue.” I told all my friends I was seeing him and even yelled out “Mr. Schue” a couple of times at the beginning. I then remembered that I was there to see Matthew Morrison and should call him as such. Ironically, about halfway through his set Matthew started to introduce a song he wrote called “My Name.” Matthew explained that this song was about the duality of being Mr. Schue, a character he loves but who is NOT him. Well, of course that got me thinking of another man who suffers from the same issue on a MUCH grander scale. (I told you we’d get to the Rob part!)
Listening to this amazing song I got to thinking. This would make a wonderful Rob video!! And, what do I do when a video idea strikes me? Call up my talented and faithful Robfriend dazzledbyrp (aka Maggie), of course! I told her my idea and some thoughts on the video and let her have at it. Well, you ladies have already seen some of her great work (last week’s ABC vid) and you know that this will be just as good.
Maggie did an amazing job and went above and beyond my dreams for this video, and that is saying something. This is such a heartfelt video that I even got teary-eyed. So be prepared to be “dazzled”…
See? I told you it was an amazing video!! But now my question is this: How do we get Rob to comprehend that it IS him we love? I think he’s growing on the idea but isn’t quite there yet. What do you ladies want to tell Rob to help him understand a little better? Leave a comment and let him know. Let’s hope it’s on a day like this that Rob decides to read RA!
