I got a text message last night from Misty, one of my co-managers. It was a link to a YouTube video and some text that said “is that you dancing?” I clicked the link and knew what it was even before I pressed play. That was Kristen and I dancing on 13th Street in The Pearl!!
See, Portland has this cool event on the first Thursday of every month called, First Thursday (how imaginative, right?) It was May 1st, and Kristen and I were dancing in the streets the entire night. So how on Earth did Misty find this video?!? I mean, I had no idea this video even existed! In fact, this is the only picture I had of us dancing in the streets that night (with my patented Tyler move, btw):
I called Misty to find out where she found the video, and she told me that she saw the clip on Fox News with her partner. Fox was doing a story on Daniel Seavey, the 15 year old American Idol finalist, because he’s my neighbor here in Vancouver, WA. Fox showed a clip where he was performing during First Thursday (the one with Kristen and I dancing – see the video below), and Misty’s partner Shannon yelled out: “Oh my God! Is that Ty?!?” It turns out that Fox found this little clip on YouTube and played it for everyone in Portland to see. haha, check it out!
OMG, this is epic!!! LOL, I’ve already had three more people text/call to tell me they saw me dancing on the news! Kristen – look at us being all famous and stuff!! I can’t seem to find the actual news clip, but I’ll keep searching. In the meantime, here are a few more photos from May, 2014.
