“Let me tell you a story about that,” Nikki began. “Kat Dennings—who happens to be one of my closest girlfriends—Kat and I are massive Hanson fans, and we did not discover this about one another, even though we are super-close. We didn’t know we were Hanson fans until we both signed onto the video. It was a weird, secret obsession that we both had and kept to ourselves.
“I wrote [Hanson] fan mail. That’s how my relationship with them started,” Nikki continued. “I mean, I love them. I wrote them fanmail in the hopes that they’d write me back, and Kat did the same thing. That’s how these relationships blossomed. And they called both of us… and then we both showed up to do this video. It could not be any funnier. Just because I see Kat every week. How did I not know this about her?”
And lest you think Nikki hid her obsession because she was embarrassed, that is most definitely not the case.
“It was just something we hadn’t talked about,” she said. “That’s why it’s so random. I don’t think we were ashamed of our Hanson love.”
As it turns out, Nikki’s husband, Paul, is also a fan.
“Paul actually has a little cameo in the video too,” she enthused. “Regardless of whether or not you like ’MMBop,’ we’re talking about three brothers who could not be more—they’re such polished musicians. They get to practice all day, every day with each other from the time they were directly out of the womb. When you’re around them, you have to be inspired musically. They’re so talented.”
