Spare me the hysterics about this video.
There are people that waited longer lines to see The Phantom Menace, and at the end, they just saw a movie.
Hope springs eternal. There are lots of people that want to be on stage. Lots of nice kids who have stars in their eyes that make big sacrifices in order to be seen by casting directors. I think there are some movies about that from the mid-70s. It does not make me faint. If it makes you faint, I dunno. Take a pill.
It's a long line. They're young kids, having fun, trying their luck, learning life lessons, flirting. Whatever. May their spirit infect us all. May their unabashed belief in a lucky break defeat anyone's concern for their well-being.
