When the duo finally made their way over to where Julia was being interviewed by the mtvU team, she had an awesome freak-out which resulted in a three-way hug. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis then surprised Julia and her best friend with a trip and tickets to Hangout Fest in Alabama. Julia’s response pretty much summed up the entire experience: “You guys are the coolest humans ever!”
In other episodes Darren Criss, Usher and Nick Cannon will surprise fans on college campuses, too! And these aren’t just any ol’ stans — these superfans have done something good for the lives of others, which is why these stars want to show them some love! Along with getting recognized on mtvU and meeting their idols IRL, the fans also get various “Random Acts” goodies like a $24,000 tuition gift, VIP passes, gear, gift cards and a grant or a trip to the MTV Video Music Awards!!! Not bad, huh?
