I wasn't familiar with the song before I saw this video (I am properly acquainted now), but that didn't prevent me from giggling like a schoolgirl. He's so adorably awkward that he even makes an interview with the fucking horrid Peter Travers bearable. And I love how by the end neither he nor Carey Mulligan can keep their shit together. Peter Travers is sitting there like the out of touch fuddyduddy he is, unmoved by Andy's impromptu excursion into topical pop music, thanking them for their time while they are obviously not paying attention and don't give two shits about him anymore. It literally goes: "Thank you, Carey." "*snorts in laughter*" "Andrew" "I hate you, Peter." (That last bit warms my heart, even if it's sort of out of context). I could literally watch this all day. Actually, I was going through withdrawal while at work this morning and had to watch it as soon as I came home.
Yes, I realize I am now officially obsessed with Andy Garfield, but now is the perfect time for it to be rearing its pretty little face. With two high-profile movies out in the coming weeks, both hoping for some Oscar nominations in a few months, and then Spider-Man, Andy will be in the public's eye for awhile now (which is a-okay by me). Since he's on the verge of becoming a big star, however, now comes the time for everyone who knew him before the Spider-Man announcement to enter an imaginary contest of "Who Knew Him First?" Because, apparently, if you knew about him first, you are clearly a bigger fan and deserve to keep Andy all for yourself. This is destined to tear people apart, as everyone, even people who are apparently friends, is fighting each other to sink their claws in him. I know I was one of those people but now that I've reflected on it I'm here to ask, "Can't we all just get along?" There's no sense arguing about something petty like who knew about Andy first; if we take turns, there's plenty of him to go around. And with someone as clearly amazing as Andy is, this is definitely more than enough to keep one satisfied. With little nuggets like this, he's the gift that keeps on giving.
