Metatalktail Hour: Brushes with Fame

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, Fizz wants hear about a time you had an encounter with a celebrity or famous person. You may bring your own definition of celebrity! As always, you can talk about whatever's on your mind (except politics).

Were you the nearly megafamous MeFite?

Refound an anecdotal comment from OverlappingElvis on how he was once in a band with people who became Walk the Moon.

(This may by definition exclude MeFites who are actually megafamous but if they have any great relevant anecdotes would love to hear them anyway)

For some reason, I thought he was taller.

Yet another celebrity shout-out to #1. I'm jumping on this bandwagon and renting a recumbent for Halloween.
