To understand why I started touching celebrities, you must first know that when it comes to interacting with stars, I have a terrible track record. I work in marketing and have met my fair share of celebrities over the years. Yet, no matter how many I meet, I never have anything worthy to say to them. How many times can they hear “I really like your work” or “You are a real inspiration to me” or “Thanks for getting me pregnant?” When you encounter a celebrity, you want to come across so brilliant and funny that the celebrity wants to become your best friend and you go out for low-fat frozen yogurt every Tuesday. But it never ends up that way. More likely than not, you always walk away feeling stupid because you didnt have anything fantastic to say.
Let’s face it: Very few of us have anything interesting to say to a celebrity that they haven’t heard before. But, you still want to have an interaction with them. That is where Celebrity Touching™ comes into play. The basic idea is that you don’t have to have an awkward conversation with a celebrity to interact with them… you just need to touch them!
Now, it is very important to note that in official Celebrity Touching™, the celebrity must never know they have been touched. If the celebrity knows they have been touched, it doesn’t count. That means handshakes are out. So are lap dances (You hear that Dakota Fanning!). You have to get creative in your touching technique, which you can read more about in this blog.
So, these are my adventures touching unwitting celebrities. I hope you enjoy them.
