One NCT moment that sounds too ridiculous to be true is their meeting with American singer Anderson .Paak — but there’s video evidence to prove it really happened!
Back in 2018, NCT 127 were promoting their album Regular-Irregular in the United States. While in Los Angeles, they did a Q&A at Twitter‘s LA center, performed on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show, attended the American Music Awards, and so much more.
It just so happened that the release of NCT 127’s album lined up with Anderson .Paak’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, “TINTS!” Brandon Paak Anderson is an American musician of African-American and Korean heritage, who was recently featured in the soundtrack for Shang-Chi and The Legend Of The Ten Rings. He appeared on The Zane Lowe Show the same day as NCT 127, and shared this hilarious video of him cruising down the highway on his way there.

And when he finally arrived, Anderson made a huge entrance. He started dancing on top of the table, with everyone in the room hyping him up — only to fall off the table! Fans believe you can hear Johnny saying “I got you” right after Anderson falls.
Throwback to around this time last year when nct 127 met Anderson .Paak In America during their regular promotion’s and he was doing the absolute most and fell off the table 😭💀 pic.twitter.com/jXqwQQjpjV

Here’s a picture Anderson shared on Twitter that captured him on top of the table right before falling down.

Mark in particular was obviously a big fan of the song; just a month after meeting Anderson .Paak, he posted a video of him freestyle dancing to “TINTS.”
And Paak shared his appreciation for the video in a Twitter reply!

Their first meeting was definitely something fans will never forget, and it’s often brought up as one of the most unbelievable things to happen in “NCITY.”
that video of anderson paak yelling GET THE FUCK OUT THE WAY when he was driving to see nct is something that is on constant repeat in my brain

i think the video of anderson paak speeding down the highway to meet nct makes him falling off the counter when he met them even funnier
