Last night’s show at USANA Amphitheatre featured an incredible moment of serendipity that only Utahns could fully appreciate. Chart-toppers AJR were headlining their biggest show yet, with over 19,000 people in attendance. Half way through the show, they took a break from music to talk to the crowd.

Every show, bassist Adam Met and frontman Jack Met try to find a doppelgänger of their brother (keyboardist Ryan Met) in the crowd. Jack pointed into the audience and asked someone to come on stage. Security brought the guy up and had him stand next to Ryan. When the camera zoomed in on Ryan next to the night’s doppelgänger, a murmur swept through the audience before turning into cheers and applause.

A glasses-wearing Adam Berg of Studio C fame whispered in Jack’s ear. Adam was given the microphone, where he introduced himself as a sketch comedian from JK! Studios and Studio C. “We have over 2 billion views on YouTube.”

“That’s WAY more than us!” Jack replied. “I’m starting to think that you guys think this was planned. I promise you this was not. It’s not like he paid us money to promote his YouTube page. It doesn’t seem like he needs it anyway. Holy shit.”

The two embraced and the audience laughed and applauded, basking in the glory of two worlds colliding. It was also a perfect example of how Utah’s growing entertainment industry is quietly eclipsing the rest of the world with subtle success. It’s not every day a random concert goer has more YouTube views than the headliner of a sold-out amphitheater.

Let’s mention the thousands that missed half the show and the thousands that couldn’t even get in because of USANAs poor management
