This is the ask, yes. At the time the question about this ask was, was it complete bs or not or was the anon telling the truth. Looking back from now, I’ve seen an increased obviousness since the time of MM of a pushed pr message, ‘the boys are growing up’. It’s been gradual since the very adult-oriented SNL ‘Through the Dark’ performance of early December, 2013.
So now what I’m thinking is that it’s rather less likely that a random person who just so happened to read my blog also had a friend who worked in the PR agency approached by 1D, and more likely that the ask was planted, ala goodbyeadulthood lite.
Looking back, the ask was originally sent April 8, 2014.
