Posting about this yet again with more info than you could ever want (seriously, super long post). I became a fan of BMC thanks to my best friend, who told me I should listen to the OCR. I can’t even tell you how many afternoons we spent jamming in her car singing Two Player Game and BMC Pt. 1 (I was Michael and the Squip, respectively, for those wondering). We had BMC themed parties (red solo cups and Mountain Dew were in abundance), we recorded covers of us singing together, and we’d subtly dress as the characters through closet cosplay. This show holds a special place in my heart, as I know it does for many.
When I heard that the show was being brought to the Signature, I was thrilled that the show I love was getting new life thanks to the passion of fans. I myself couldn’t make it to the show, but I kept up with all the posts and stories, and I can’t even begin to describe how much it warmed my heart that a great cast was getting the recognition they deserve.
Then, broadway, and the karaoke contest. I was determined to make my entry a thank you note to the people that worked their rear ends off to bring this story to life--and the Lyceum. Both the cast AND the people behind the scenes. ( @bemorechillwardrobe @jenashtep @maxbfriedman @instachasebrock )
While making my BMC Karaoke Entry, I was sick and had a broken ankle. I was supposed to be on crutches, but that obviously wouldn’t capture the spirit of @hsulace ‘s Christine.
I wanted to do something that’d be very different. I decided I wanted to do a mashup. With some help from the amazing @alternativemashup , “I Love Michael in the Bathroom” was created.
There are tons of easter eggs throughout, referencing each iteration of the show. Some include:
-The BOYF backpack
-Jeremy and Michael’s handshake
-A ‘touching my hand’ callback at the very end
- @actually_will_roland ’s Jeremy shirt
-Michael’s CREEPS shirt. I added the lettering myself
-The binder covers for the scripts that I created, and I hope @jasonsweettooth appreciates the Mr. Reyes love :D
TLDR: A lot of time and love from a longtime fan went into the making of this video. Hope you all enjoy. Link in bio. #bmc #bemorechill #bmckaraoke
