Stevie's report on Flyering Day



Image: How cute are these little MJ fans?


The day started off well, because the sun was shining and it was lovely and warm. This was a big relief to Jen & I, because we knew we were going to be spending 8 hours outside (on and off). Maria met us at St.Pancras and we went to her flat to drop off our gear, put our t.shirts on, chill n chat for a bit before going to a Moroccan restaurant in Covent Garden for some lunch.

We left the restaurant at 3.15 to make the short walk to the Lyric Theatre. We both expressed a certain amount of nervousness at this point, having never done anything like this before. We’d already planned our ‘speech’ but we were unsure if we’d be any good at it, would people want to listen to us? Would we get any negative comments? Would we be taken seriously? We arrived outside the front of the theatre and a lady came up to us, asking if we were Michael Jackson fans (the t.shirts being a bit of a clue I guess) and then she introduced herself as Mai1 from the forum! This was a lovely surprise and we all hugged and kissed our greetings.

Having handed Mai some flyers and badges we then stood there a little unsure. There was a group of people gathered, just chatting and I though “right, this is it, take the bull by the horns and just go for it!” so I approached them and asked if they were gonna see the show. When they said “yes” I asked if they would like to help get Michael Jackson to no.1 on the anniversary of his death. When they smiled and said “yes” I then went into a brief explanation of our campaign and they all seemed keen and interested. I gave them badges (something for free always goes down well!) and they went into the theatre looking at the flyers.

From then on it was easy. We got a good response largely; some people ignored us of course, some politely shook their heads, but a LOT of people were very interested. And some were absolutely dead keen and promised to download. At one point, the staff approached Mai1 to ask what we were about. After she explained to them, they took a bunch of flyers to display in the foyer!! RESULT!!

When the doors closed for the start of the performance we went off to get a drink (our mouths were so dry from all the talking) and then went back to get them coming out. Again, a largely positive response. We felt encouraged and very very pleased.

Surprise No. 1:
As we stood there for the start of the evening performance, we noticed a group of girls coming towards the theatre. All dressed in Michaelesque outfits, looking stunning. Of course we targeted them and shoved flyers at them. They said “we know about this campaign!, it’s been on our forum!” It transpires that they’re from PositivelyMichael and we all know each other (by username of course!). They introduce themselves – Dangerous, AnotherPartofMe, mjsPYT77, Aine, Julie and Clovermoss!! They have traveled from USA, Sweden, Belgium, Newcastle and Liverpool to all meet up for a few days in London, with a trip to Thriller Live during their meet-up. The squeals of delight coming from us all must’ve made bystanders wonder what the hell was going on!!

Surprise No. 2:
After our initial shock at this unexpected happy coincidence, Jen announces “That’s not the only surprise Squiff. I’ve got you a ticket for your birthday – we’re gonna see the show!”. OMG!! I was totally overwhelmed and actually became a little emotional for a minute. This day was just getting better and better!

We continued flyering until we really had to get inside, and watched an absolutely amazing, thrilling, emotional and uplifting show. At one point I was told to sit down by the people behind me. I reluctantly obliged for a couple more songs, but then when Billie Jean started, I thought f..k em!! And I stood up and danced with everybody else for the rest of show!

We had to make a VERY sharp exit at the end in order to catch the people coming out and continue our work. Surprisingly enough, the response in the evening wasn’t as good as the matinee but we decided people were probably eager to get home. We still got good vibes, just not as many as in the afternoon.

Jen & I made our way back to Maria’s armed with a celebratory bottle of White Zinfandel, reflecting on a good day and a job well done.

Flyering day in London

On Saturday April 10, team mjmassdownload arrived at the Lyric Theatre to approach MJ fans coming in and out of the Thriller live show to promote our campaign.
In attendance were Kav (who created the youtube video), Stevie (who designed the badges and T-shirts), Audrey (who heard about what we were doing on the MJFC forum) and Jen (writer of this blog and twitter account). The Gods were indeed smiling on us as the sun was streaming down. None of us had ever approached complete strangers to explain a campaign so we were unsure of the reaction we were going to get. Fans entering the daytime performance seemed very interested - and some even took a badge and requested a T-shirt! We were also pleased when the staff working at Thriller Live took and interest and even took some flyers to handout inside!

After a break we resumed campaigning as fans began to gather for the evening show. Again, we were pleased when people showed an interest and requested a badge. Of course some werent interested at all but noone was rude to us.
We noticed a fantastic group of girls approaching all dressed up in MJ gear - including glittery socks, fedora and aviator shades. We were estatic to discover the girls were from the Positively Michael forum and knew about our campaign!
it was then time for me and Stevie to watch the show (which is fantastic by the way!). After the show we shot straight outside to catch the crowd coming out. Generally the response was a little more apathetic - however we were well aware that people probably wanted to shoot off home at that point.
All in all our flyering day was a great success and we aim to do another one before June 14th. It was great to promote such a wonderful song to many people who had never heard of it, let alone heard it! Hopefully they will have a listen and realise what an amazing song it is.

If there are any events we should know about that will attract MJ fans or you would like to get involved with the campaign, please do not hesistate to leave a comment or contact us as mjmassdownload@googlemail.com

Its all for L.O.V.E

Thank you, Jen

June 14th 2010


MJ fans recieved the news yesterday that 'Doctor Death' Conrad Murray will be back in court on June 14th. For us fans this makes our campaign more urgent than ever. For June 14th is also the date we are asking fellow fans to download the song 'We've Had Enough' to get it to number one on June 25th.
On June 14th fans can be heard through Michaels music - his gift to us.
The lyrics are more poignant now than ever. Here are just some of the lyrics of this beautiful song:

Love was taken from a young life
And no one told her why
Her direction has a dimlight
From one more violent crime

She innocently questioned why
Why her father had to die
She asked the men in blue
How is it that you get to choose
Who will live and who will die
Did god say that you could decide ?
You saw he didn't run
And that my daddy had no gun

...

Did God say that they could decide
Who will live and who will die ?
All my mama ever did
Was try to take care of her kids

We're innocently standing by
Watching people lose their lives
It seems as if we have no voice
It's time for us to make a choice

Only god could decide
Who will live and who will die
There's nothing that can't be done
If we raise our voice as one

They've gotta hear it from me
They've gotta hear it from you
They've gotta hear it from us
We can't take it
We've already had enough


What a statement this will send to the world!
