In which John Green and Hank attend the premiere of The Fault in our Stars movie in New York City. Also featured are cast members Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, and more.

Thanks to everyone who has read the book and shared with me in the process of watching the movie get made. Sharing this with you has made it real for me, and I hope you love the movie as much as I do.
Hank: I think they can see us a little bit.
John: I don't think they can see us. 
Hank: They're thirsty for Augustus Waters, John.
John: Is that what it said?
Hank: Yeah. 
John: Haha, that's a funny pun, 'cause he's Waters. It's an import- it's an important metaphor in the book.
John: Good morning Hank, it's Tuesday ... It's actually Monday, we're on our way to The Fault In Our Stars movie premiere. Very exciting. The collaboration between the two of us and the community that's emerged from it means more to me than anything else in my professional life, and before we go do this crazy thing, I just wanna say thank you.
Hank: You're welcome. Also thank you.
John: That's what I was waiting for, the mutual thank-you!
(Crowd screaming)
John: Hold on, I have to video-blog really quickly. Instead of a red carpet, we have a TFIOS blue carpet, how awesome is that?
John (voice-over): So Hank, we signed for some people who'd lined up to go to see the premiere, and then said hi to a lot more people who had Okay cloud posters by which time my brain was slightly fried.
John: Okay Hank, I have successfully signed a bunch of uh... posters and everything not skin. That's my rule, anything that's not skin and I am back on the magic TFIOS blue carpet.
John: So Hank, currently across from me are like a large wall of photographers, uh, that's, hence all the flashes, but I need to tell you that The Fault in Our Stars movie is coming out on Friday. This Friday. Like the day after the day after tomorrow. Unless you go to The Night Before Our Stars, in which case it's coming out the day after tomorrow.
John: If you want to see it on Thursday, at least in some cities that is still possible, you can go to and get tickets, link in the doobly doo.
John: I am sweating through my Burberry shirt, which is only increasing my already sizable anxiety.
John: Aww, you look so cute!
John (voice-over): Then Nat Wolff showed up for our Today Show live chat.
John: There are people from The Today Show talking to me inside of my ear.
John(voice-over): And then came the live chat with our astonishingly beautiful and talented Hazel, Shailene Woodley.
John: By the time that was over, things were starting to get quite crowed. I met Indy 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay.
John: Then things got even more crowed and I kind of lost my ability to even.
John: I don't know, I don't know what to say, I don't have, I don't have a... I don't have a talking part.
John (voice-over): Took a selfie with Mike Birbiglia, and then stood on the carpet with my brilliant and lovely wife just a few feet away from Shailene and Laura Dern.
John: And then, I got to meet Spelling Bee co-champion Ansun Sujoe, unquestionably the highlight of my evening!
John: Okay Hank, I just did all of those press interviews and now I am going to into the movie, look! Look look look look look! That's the movie!
John: Well Hank, they didn't let me film inside the theater, so greetings from Tuesday, where my view of Manhattan is not half bad.
John: Hank, the premiere was just absolutely amazing - laughing and crying with 1200 people, and I'm so glad that you were sitting there, two seats away from me.
So Hank, before I say anything else, I just wanna establish that I'm not getting paid for the movie, like I got paid for the rights a long time ago, but I don't get a percentage of ticket sales or anything, and I don't have to talk about it. And if I didn't like it, believe me, you'd know.
But in fact, I love the movie; I think it's amazingly faithful to the book, and powerful, and funny, and moving.
Hank, the people who made this movie cared about the story, and they care about each other, and you can really see that. 
Last night we all got to be together one last time, which was sad in a way but it was also very exciting, because it means that soon, in fact very soon, EVERYONE will get to see the movie.
Thanks to all of Nerdfighteria for being part of this process with me -- read the book first! 
And Hank, I will see you on Friday - when The Fault In Our Stars movie will be out in theaters everywhere!
Nat: 'How you doing, Hank? Well, so I kind of, y'know it was a great premiere that we had, but, y'know, okay, Hank.'
