Every time I think that I’m starting to settle into something which vaguely resembles a normal life, some massively surreal opportunity comes to bite me on the bum. But it’s an exciting bite on the bum (if there is such a thing). I’m here today to reveal unto you all that I, Charlie McDonnell, that guy who makes videos on the internet, will be going to the Television BAFTA’s. To present an award. So I’m going to be on the television. Presenting a BAFTA. I don’t get how this is allowed.
I mean, surely I’m going to get on stage only to have everyone shout “he’s not a celebrity, what’s he doing up there? Kill him!” and then Graham Norton is going to pull out a crossbow and shoot me in the head. And then they’ll drag me off screen like the fraud that I am, with a snail-trail of blood in my wake. And then I’ll get blood on my new suit! Which will definitely be the worst thing about that hypothetical situation.
Wow, sorry for being so grim. Let’s forget about the blood. BAFTA! This year, YouTube are Sponsoring the Audience Award (the only award voted for by the public) and the lovely Jamie at YouTube sent me an email asking if I wanted to present it. Voting is taking place here if you’re interested, and the show is taking place on the 6th of June. Hopefully they’ll let me shoot some footage while I’m over there, I reckon the experience would make a fun video :)
I have nothing more to say than that, just wanted to share my excitement with you! Also, I’m probably going to have nightmares about a crossbow wielding Graham Norton tonight.
