The Time Joss Whedon Photo Bombed Our Interview.

This little story I'm about to tell, is perhaps the craziest and most ridiculous thing that has ever happened to us in our time as Buffyfest.

Last month we interviewed Buffy Season 9 Writer Andrew Chambliss and Artist Georges Jeanty at SDCC. After we published the post, a commenter on the YouTube pointed out that at the 3:58 mark of the video Joss Whedon actually walks behind us (video on right). At first this seemed totally implausible, how could 6 people all involved with this man not notice such a ridiculous thing? But after viewing the video on our phones at that very moment on the Hall H line, we realized how true and silly it all was. Joss totally passed through the Dark Horse booth at the time of our recording and probably didn't even notice that his worshipers and employees were right there talking about him.

But there is so much more to this story. We recently realized we still have footage of the other angle from our 2nd camera! What would it reveal? Did Joss actually know we were there or just passing through? Upon further inspection and analysis, we found the unimaginable. Not only did Joss Whedon pass through the booth, but he stopped, stared at us, pointed at us, adjusted his hat, spoke to the person he was with about Andrew, Georges, Scott Allie and what was going on at that moment (i.e. OUR INTERVIEW) for over a full minute...all while about 2 feet behind Michelle's shoulder. And again, not one of the 6 of us behind or in front of the camera has the slightest clue. Andrew Chambliss is actually using the words "Joss is kind of busy right now with The Avengers." HE'S RIGHT BEHIND YOU GUYS!

Oh  man, you have to see it to believe it. We are the biggest idiots ever. See for yourself below (complete with UFO spotlight) and please laugh at our expense. I'm fairly sure this wouldn't have happened if Bitsy was there.


Sheesh and Fail. Joss Whedon is so our White Whale. Maybe we'll get him next time!

We can't see it. The video is private.
