Must protect john

[–]🌅 Californication Lilla_catlady 84 points85 points  (9 children)

Why do people have to be so obnoxious and run after them like this??? Say hi to them when they walk past and then move on, no? I'm a superfan but would never do this, have some empathy and respect. Love how Flea is just completely covered lol Clearly hating this. The only super relaxed one is Chad because he is Chad 😎 Anthony walking in his own world as if no one around him exists (probably copying mechanism to deal with these crazy people) and John being really sweet and nervously Smiling.

some people don’t have self-awareness and see them as gods when they’re not. i would wanna be like chad tho lol

John looks like a little kid you're trying to navigate through a big crowd so they don't get lost

[–]RandomPerson873 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Makauley Culkin navigating the airport in Home Alone vibes for sure

There's a note pinned to his sweater

[–]🪐 Stadium ArcadiumRHCPandJF 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Gotta love Chad. He’s so chilled

[–]prometheus05 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I got a kick out of everyone obsessing over John so much that Chad was just chilling walking unbothered lol.

[–]littlerimsss 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I’m overwhelmed just watching this. I’m sure he feels overwhelmed with love but also scary man! Can’t breathe.

[–]elric82 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right. Celebrity would be my absolute worst nightmare.

[–]MarkMinsh 64 points65 points  (1 child)

Big fan of seeing John so smiley but fuck me, let them just exist in the world without waving CDs in their faces and shouting at them. They're people.

[–]🥁 Chad Smithm636 28 points29 points  (0 children)

They're people.

I used to work in private aviation, met many celebrities, I wish more people would realize what you said. This video is just pure cringe.

They're just people, and nothing changes their demeanor from "just a dude" to "PR Mode" quicker than a crazy fan acting all hot and bothered because they're in their presence.

Some of the coolest interactions I've had were just normal conversations.

[–]C__S__S 32 points33 points  (0 children)

And people want to know why AK and Flea can get prickly at times. That was straight up claustrophobic.

[–]Tall-Wear-7809 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Some of the guys might be smiling. But this is scary shit. Don’t grab band members/support staff.

[–]thegr3atape 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Chad is the coolest cat.

[–]Bradleyyourmomforbreakfast 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Smiling isn’t always happy. Sometimes I laugh or smile when I’m nervous as hell and given the situation.. but maybe he was happy, who knows.

[–]Plumber4Life84 5 points6 points  (7 children)

You would think they would bring these guys in on the downlow. I’m sure they could have snuck them out of the airport.

[–]Pliskin1108 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Not really no. Airports aren’t really designed to cater for this and most other exits are restricted to airport personnel and this is extremely strict.

This is the main reason people travel on a private jet from smaller regional airports, because it allows them to be on the DL (on top of saving time at security and choosing what time the airplane departs).

[–]Reyunshod 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Idk about Japan but most commercial airlines in the US allow VIP travelers to drive right up to the door of the plane without going through the building

[–]torontoLDtutor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The band rode the train to Osaka from Tokyo

[–]Pliskin1108 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Source : trust me dude?

There are things in place, sometimes, in some places and in some conditions. But it’s not as easy as you make it seem and there are some of the steps you can skip by getting escorted, etc. But ultimately not all. And I’m talking as an airline pilot with all the proper accreditations that still need to go the passenger way times to times for various reasons. The airport authority ultimately decide how they want to handle it and can have a whole thing in place, but generally speaking they don’t.

This is why NHL/NFL etc all charter 737 kind of aircraft to be on the corporate side of the airport which is a whole other world and prevents all of this. Just my 2 cents.

[–]Reyunshod 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Are you always so hostile from the get go?

Maybe it's different from the pilot's seat, YMMV. I've been driven straight to the plane many times.

[–]Pliskin1108 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No hostility here brother, if that’s what came across. I was just asking what your statement was based on, and I used a common internet phrasing for it.

It’s not about pilot’s seat or not, it’s about regulations. You mentioned US airlines, you have to understand that airlines have very little power over what they can and can’t do, they can just ask and hope. When an airport is their main hub, they get a little more leverage.

But it’s always:

  • FAA (or whatever regulatory body outside the US).
  • Airport Authority.
  • Airlines.

The point is, an airline wanting to offer that service isn’t enough. It’s always up to the authority to judge if the biggest risk/hassle is having VIP amongst peasants or having personal escorts.

All of that being said, yes, it does happen daily and like I mentioned with the chartering of airplane and using corporate sides of airports and such, there are definitely a bunch of ways around it. It’s just not as easy as “well US airlines do it all the time” is all I’m saying. And considering how strict Japan is on about everything, I wouldn’t be surprised that their policy is “no one on the ramp unless they are an airport employee”

It’s a train station; not an airport.

[–]JAK3CAL 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Man this would suck…

[–]mjenardo 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This is why I would never want to be famous

[–]sparten112233 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No wonder they dont fuck with fans . I couldn't imagine this on a daily basis.

[–]samedreamchina 3 points4 points  (0 children)

John’s face ☺️

[–]🌸 Return of the Dream CanteenG_V_2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

God, the escalator bit made me feel so awkward lol

[–]Bradleyyourmomforbreakfast 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lmaoo AK w the ambush bag

[–]arealguitarhero 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Its so rude that people shove things in his face expecting him to automatically autograph whatever it is. Especially knowing how introverted and sensitive he is, how can people be this disrespectful?

[–]NewYearsD 2 points3 points  (0 children)

sumimaseeennnn haha

[–]philed1337 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who’s the lady with John?

[–]yamumspushy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

John is smiling cos he’s about to have a few weeks off 😆

[–]mysteryoussef 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Took me a while to see Flea, I guess his camouflage worked!

[–]Sad_Activity2501 2 points3 points  (0 children)

To anyone complaining about “grumpy anthony” please refer them to this video.

As much as I would love to meet any of these guys, I’d want it to be low key. If I saw them in public I’d never scream, chase, whip out my phone, or do anything that would bring more attention. This felt so invasive to watch.

[–]Brief-Ad5774 1 point2 points  (0 children)

John's smile is making my day so happy

[–]Adventurous-Yam-8561 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looked like Flea was carrying his trumpet 😄

[–]Pollylocks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Antoneeeee antoneeee! Jeez that must be annoying and wouldn’t you feel shame as a fan following them around like that? They clearly don’t want a bar of you lol.

[–]APaulO1958 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Took me a while to find Flea. Don’t blame him for wearing his hood up. It’s super cold here.

[–]symiriscool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s such a cutie

[–]MahTwizzah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I fucking hate invasive idiots like these.

[–]jigglydigly -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

For the price they charge for concert tickets these days, they deserve it!

[–]BookkeeperFormal1833 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

boo hoo ...40 years ago ...geez that's a long time ...they dreamed of having fans calling their name ...it can be annoying but they should feel thankful to have fans that stakeout a train station waiting for them ...this is how you sell out a stadium ...i'll trade with them any day than working my 9 to 5 job

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I feel like John would love living in Japan

[–]amphibian303 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]NewYearsD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Godspeed_shit_420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why do people have to be like this? Like bruh I love the band as much as any person on this sub, but like just “no way, you’re John (or any other band member). That’s really cool. Can I take a picture” or not even a picture just say you’re a big fan and move on
