In case you needed more proof that Adam Levine is a wonderful human being, his perfect reaction to this amazing 10-year-old superfan’s panic attack should do the trick.
Christopher Warner, who has Downs Syndrome, is such a big fan of Maroon 5 and Adam in particular that he prints off his favourite photos of the band AND slays renditions of their songs in karaoke.
What an awesome guy!
Understandably, when he finally came face-to-face with his idols, Christopher was a little overwhemed and sufffered a panic attack.
However, not wishing their superfan to be uncomfortable, Adam laid down on the floor next to him to help him calm down. What a lovely man, eh?
It all started when Avery Stanert, a special education teacher at Christopher’s school, decided to make a fan video showing off just how much he loves them.
The video shows him singing their songs and picked his favourite Maroon 5 song. He actually knows all the words too. <3
Avery told Today.com: “He has just been fascinated with Maroon 5 and especially Adam Levine. He loves to listen to their music during work breaks. He draws pictures of them. He just absolutely loves them.”
Deciding to do something about it, she made the video and uploaded it to YouTube with the caption: “I am a special education teacher and Christopher is one of my students. He is an amazing boy who is just like any 10-year-old with an interest in pop culture.
“He loves listening to Maroon 5. For his informational writing project, he chose to make a poster about the band.
“Every day, he works to earn breaks to listen to his favorite Maroon 5 songs. I told him we could make a movie so he could let Adam Levine know about his #1 fan. This was a collaborative effort from me, my co-worker Jay Hackett, and Christopher’s mother.”
Avery had sent the video to Hot 99.5, an American radio station, where luckily The Kane Show picked it up and organised for Christopher, his mum, and his teachers to meet his idols backstage at their show in Washington D.C.
In fact, this was the first time this awesome boy had seen his idols live, so it was a ruddy special night all round.
However, just like many young fans meeting their idols, the experience was pretty overwhelming for Christopher, who suffered a panic attack and had to lay on the floor.
Being a top babe and showing his true compassion, Adam actually decided to lie on the floor too, followed by the rest of the band.
Just when we thought we couldn’t love the heartthrob anymore, he goes and does this. Him and his bandmates are just the best popstars, aren’t they?
Cecilia, their superfan’s mum, described what happened to ABC News, explaining: “He [Christopher] was very shy at first. I kind of got down on the floor and he was hiding behind me.
“Then Adam said ‘That’s OK, we’ll all get down on the floor.’ It wasn’t beneath him to lay down on a locker room floor with Christopher.”
Even the band had a special experience that night, with PJ Morton, their keyboardist, saying: “He’s an awesome kid. I got a high-five!”
In conclusion, Adam (and the rest of the band) are just the nicest guys EVER and we ruddy love them forever and ever for helping this superfan’s dreams come true.
Hanging out on the floor is seriously underrated anyway.
