Teen Plays Hooky And Steals The Show At Bruce Springsteen Concert
Rocker Bruce Springsteen made sure one Australian teenager learned his lesson about playing hooky from school.
Nathan Testa found out it was probably the best idea of his life.
Testa was close to the stage during a recent concert in Brisbane, Australia.
He held up a sign reading, ““Missed school, in the s—, now can I play ‘Growin’ Up’ with you?”
What was the superstar to do but invite the lad up to do just that.
As you’ll see, Nathan more than holds his own with Bruce and the E Street Band.
And he gets a few pointers on being super cool, as well.
Talk about the coolest excuse note ever.
I dare any of Nathan’s teachers to watch this video and not give him an excused absence.
