What would you do if you got an email that was inviting you to a stag do and you had no idea who the person was nor the person who invited you? Would you ignore it or just dive right in?
Well this happened to a dude named Novak. He was accidentally copied in to a group email about a forthcoming stag do thanks to a typo in an email address. He didn't know any of the guys, but he did know what they were planning for their mate, groom-to-be Angelo, who they'd be whisking off to Vermont for a skiing trip.
Within the email it asks the stags to "Bring your 80's attire, ridiculous awesome get ups, etc. for skiing, ask yourself "What would Angelo wear?"
Rather than ignoring the email like many of us would do, Novak replied: "I do not know who Angelo is. I am a Will Novak who lives in Arizona. Vermont seems like a very far way for me to travel for the bachelor party of a guy I've never met. "That being said: fucking count me in!"
Eventually, his new friends replied to say they all agreed that Novak join them.
Posting the thread to Facebook, Novak asked his followers: "So I ask you Facebook, should I leave my wife and 9 month child behind to go to a bachelor party of a man I've never met on the other side of the country? Because right now, I'm leaning yes!"
Well he went and boy does it look like a good time! He took to Instagram to say, "I made it. I have no reception. I'm gonna pass out."
After setting up a GoFundMe page to help him get to 'the bachelor party of a stranger', Novak flew 2,500 miles to join the group on Angelo's Vermont-based stag-do, 80's themed night out and all.
"#AngelosBachelorParty was a big success!!!" he told people in an update on the GoFundMe page.
"No one died, or even got arrested! Though the other Will Novak did dislocate his shoulder whilst trying to 'shred the gnar'."
Novak also explained that he found out Angelo and his bride-to-be were also expecting a baby, so any excess GoFundMe fees that he didn't need for his trip would be going to the new family.
"Let's help start this new couple off on the right foot," he wrote.
Honestly that story was one hell of a ride and sounds like something you'd only see in a movie!
