Thursday December 19th was no ordinary day, it was an exciting day! Exciting because I was about to go surprise Julia of North Hollywood with keys to a brand new mini cooper from Mini of Universal City. At least that was the plan anyways!
Dressed as an elf, I walked up to the gate trying to buzz Julia’s apartment when a random neighbor blurted out the code to get in and just like that, I was in. Yes! Apparently a cute elf and a camera man is worth letting in! As I got closer and closer to Julia’s door my excitement was more than I could handle. I knocked on the door and patiently waited no answer. So I knocked once more. Still, no answer. What was I to do?! I was so eager to deliver the news!
Some of the neighbors had seen me walking around Julia’s complex being followed with a camera and wondered what I was up to. Not everyday that a Sticker Pimp walks around an apartment complex dressed up as an elf on a mission.
One neighbor told us Julia had moved to a different unit and pointed us in the right direction. I knocked on the door of the unit and a sweet lady answered the door. I asked if she was Julia and she said no. I was stumped.
So I decided to go back to the gate and tried buzzing her apartment. A gentleman answered and I told him I was looking for Julia in which he replied that I had the wrong number. I tried once more, again getting the wrong number.
Was I at the right address? Was I on the right street?
The sweet lady saw me still trying to locate Julia and asked why I was there and what I was doing. When I explained to her what was going on her eyes lit up and she ran to Julia’s neighbor’s apartment where a phone call was placed trying to lure her home!
After a couple of hours of sitting around and waiting and waiting some more, Julia arrived home. At this point Julia knew she was a finalist for the Mini Cooper and knew we were in the area wanting to ask her a few questions for a video. She meet us in the courtyard where we conducted the interview.
I concluded our interview asking her what she would do if I told her she won the Mini Cooper. Too bad Julia, you were this close!
She was bummed but still smiling. I just couldn’t hold it in any longer when I told her she had won the mini cooper. She was floored and so excited. Julia proceeded to tell us that on her vision board of things she wanted to own/experience one day was a Mini Cooper.
Julia, scratch that off your vision board because 93.1 JACK FM and Mini of Universal City hooked you up! Thanks for donating to Chips for Kids!
