Clay Aiken – A Part Of A Great Day

On January 22, 2016,  a young man contacted Clay with an amazing story that he told in 4 tweets.  I am putting the 4 tweets together:

When I was 4, I turned down an audition that we flew out to California for because I didn’t want to say that I loved hot wheels.

Purely by coincidence, walking down Hollywood Boulevard later that day. We came across the set for a Clay Aiken music video.

He chose me to be in his video without even knowing I was an actor. He hung out with us for a while on set and in between shots.

And that’s the story of how me and my mom had our 3 seconds of fame with 😂

Clay answered Joel:

You make me feel so old! Ha ha. But you’re great in the video and I’m so glad you were a part of it!

thank you! I’ll definitely never forget that day!

Lets watch and see if we can see Joel in the video!!

WOW…It’s been a long time since I watched this video!  It’s still fun!
