I'd just watched the movie Inside Man before falling asleep, and this is clearly influenced by that. Logic was messed up the whole time, but I think I was part of a news crew who was trying to interview a preteen male kid who had caught home-video footage of the start of the bank robbery, except this time it was one guy on the side of the street who started telling people to get down and pushing them down on the ground. If he was supposed to be a distraction or what, I have no idea.

The bank robber didn't seem to mind the kid taking video and it's almost like he found the boy amusing. I vaguely remember more footage the kid shot for fun later of his footage going viral over news networks, but the only channel he'd been able to find on a random TV was something like Faux News so the content there was obviously biased and obnoxious.

Then the dream rewound and I was the kid. This must have been after the initial recording was completed and uploaded, because I was in an inside room in a location that dream logic couldn't decide on: sometimes it was on a higher floor of the bank building and sometimes it was in a building nearby. For the bank version, I almost got the feeling the initial robber guy just let me chill there while he moved off elsewhere to do bank-robber things, and it was later established as a safe zone that police and media could move through in the building.

But right now I was still alone. I was watching the random television I'd found and waiting to see what news show caught on first to the robbery footage. I decided to change channels until I found ABC's main network and saw a notice saying the news hour was coming up within moments. As it started, they had a bit of an intro sequence but the cameras stayed dark. Hmmm were they picking up late-breaking news and scrambling to get it running?

Yep, the next thing to play on the screen was my video surrounded by a graphic that was branded with the ABC logo and whatnot, and the voice of a news-lady could be heard talking about my video and the robbery. The weird thing is, dream logic failed badly and the video actually looked like some kind of oldschool Duke Nukem-ish game's gameplay (in fact I remember thinking that's exactly what it was, and somehow that made sense while in the dream). I held up the tablet I'd apparently filmed the original video on, and started filming the news show for posterity.

It was around this time the news crew from the first part of the dream appeared, and someone said, "Are we going to get a mic on this kid?" and someone else was like, "Yeah." At this point it was hard to focus, and my point of view kept changing around various characters. I remember some issue trying to figure out what the kid's name was, and from the kid's perspective, I was having trouble figuring out what name to use. I vaguely remember "Ned" being a possibility, though at one point I wanted to say "Nev" (pronounced NEEV) but I realized that would probably get mixed up with the guy who hosts the MTV show based on the movie Catfish.

Then I woke up.

(This was from a couple of days ago)

I was either in charge of the show or one of the birthday girl's friends who was in on the big secret. Basically, we were going to throw her a big birthday bash in the style of a famous rock band, and this part she knew about but the real surprise would be later. We showed her a video of Aerosmith singing "Walk This Way" but she was dead silent. I got worried, did she not like these guys or not even know who they were? We were supposed to have set this up so it'd be a band that was pretty much this girl's idol(s) and yet here it looked like a case of very bad planning. But at the end of the music video was some "making of" clips and these showed each band member. The birthday girl finally spoke. She named them all without hesitation. We knew then that we'd landed a hit after all.

So the idea for the show/party was that she and her friends would dress up like Aerosmith band members and put on their own stage show for their friends. The birthday girl was going to be Steven Tyler, and I remember helping her pick out an outfit like his. We even put a scarf on the microphone like he would. She got up on stage with her pals and they did their fake-but-fun version of an Aerosmith song, then went into the crowd to dance and party. The time was ripe for the surprise: the real Aerosmith arrived on stage and started performing "Walk This Way." The birthday girl and her friends started screaming and jumping and generally freaking out. It was great TV.

Then I woke up.
