Beast of a queue for pop parody band
10:30am Thursday 27th October 2011
HUNDREDS of schoolgirls queued around the block for a chance to come face to face with pop parody boyband The Midnight Beast.
The band, who have done comedy covers of songs including Kesha’s Tik Tok, were in Oxford’s Waterstone’s to sign copies of their book, Book At Us Now, yesterday.
Fans started queuing from 6.30am and a whole floor of the shop had to be closed off to make way for the queue – which snaked its way from the top floor all the way down the shop and onto the street
Chitra Parandaman, 14, pictured inset far left, from Clifton Hampden, was among those who got their books signed.
She said: “They are the funniest people ever and they are really, really, really hot. If I had died then, I would have died happy, it was so good. I love everything about the band.”
Events manager Charlie Hayes estimated more than 400 people – mainly girls – came to the event.
He said: “It’s one of the biggest signings we’ve ever had – David Attenborough a few years back was probably in those numbers.”
