Watch on

Okay, let me get this straight:

  • Dean Stanland was a character created for Victoria Justice to crush on in the “All I Want is Everything” video
  • But is out of Victorious universe (?)
  • But in the “All I Want is Everything” video, in-universe characters are used to help out-of-universe Tori bag this out-of-universe dude
  • And then Dean Stanland was created as an out-of-universe but semi-irl character
  • And Victorious fans were encouraged to interact with him on the internet and ultimately help producers stage this “flash mob”
  • Wherein a bunch of irl Victorious fans helped a bunch of in-universe Victorious characters help out-of-universe Victoria Justice surprise and serenade out-of-universe Dean Stanland, who is played irl by an actor
