Moms and dads of boy-band fans everywhere: the ante has been raised. Per an item today from Albany CBS-TV affiliate Channel 6:
When Fly 92.3 FM’s Morning Rush show announced they would be giving away front row seats to see the band One Direction play at MetLife Stadium, Ron Deutsch knew he wanted to make his daughter’s dream to see her favorite band up close a reality. But, in order to do that, he had to get a softball-sized tattoo of One Direction, on his upper thigh, live on the radio.
The idea created backlash on social media, and now Ron is speaking out against critics and says he’d do it again. “I think it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for my daughter and I guess the tattoo will last forever but so will our relationship, so I think it’s worth doing,” he says.
Another reason it might have been worth doing: dad will have a near-unbeatable comeback for use in future, critical arguments. As in: “Don’t you lecture me about sacrifice, young lady. I’m the guy who got a tattoo [points] so you could go see One Direction.”
The Harry Styles-led group is set for two performances in East Rutherford Monday and Tuesday, August 4-5. The kicker? Fourteen-year-old Kendall is taking mom, not dad, to the show.
