If you’re an avid Facebook user, you may have seen an event page floating around with a picture of Owen Wilson. Created by the page ‘Owen Wilson Wowposting’, it is inviting fans of the actor to come to Fed Square on the 26th of February to say ‘Wow’ to eachother, as a tribute to the 'Wedding Crashers' star.
Fifi, Fev & Byron spoke to the organiser, Nick on Monday morning and he explained that the event was intended as a joke. However, the event went viral and at the time of publishing, 5,000 people are planning to attend with an extra 18,000 people have shown their interest.
The event will include a ‘hype speech’ and warm-up ‘wows’, followed by a massive group ‘wow’. People will then be able to stay around and ‘wow’ on as long as they like.
Nick said he’s tried to contact the master of ‘wow’ himself, but unfortunately the Wilson is pretty inactive on social media. There is always hope!
Where: Federation Square, CBD
When: 6pm-8pm February 26th
