The Directioner Experience

I took my daughter to see the new One Direction movie, This is Us.  In case you don't know who One Direction is, they are a boy band from the UK.  A very popular one!

As we walked in the theater, there were giddy tween and teen girls everywhere.  I knew this was going to be quite an experience.  We found a seat and waited for the show to begin.  When it did, the theater erupted in high-pitched shrieks.

I covered my ears and looked at my daughter.  "It's just a movie," I said. "What's the big deal, here?"

"But it's One Direction!" she answered.

Okay.

The movie pretty much covered their entire world tour and gave snippets of their shows.  After each song, the teen girls in the theater went nuts.  It was like they were actually at a live concert.

Now don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the crazy atmosphere in the theater.  But somebody should've warned me that I should've brought earplugs!  A hundred screaming girls in a theater is definitely not good for one's ears!

                           
    Doesn't she look thrilled?  Too bad the boys aren't real!

  5. Although I hate to admit it after her recent stint in the news, I took my daughter a few years ago to see Hannah Montana and she was opened by the Jonas Brothers and I wore ear plugs--ones that glowed in the dark!

  12. LOL. I'm reminded of the Beattles--how they once performed where the screams were so loud they couldn't even hear themselves play. I'm sorry for your poor ears.

  13. I remember when Grease came out and young girls screamed every time John Travolta opened his mouth or busted a move.

    2. I never felt that way about anyone as a teenager. But I remember screaming in adoration the first time The Beatles were on Ed Sullivan. I think I was five years old.

      Love,

  16. When I was young it was the Beatles. I wasn't a squealer or a screamer--more of a gape-mouthed observer, shall we say. But there's something about young girls and singers...ahhh! ;)
