Joel Can't Get into RTX

RT Animated Adventures: Joel Can't Get into RTX

Joel struggles to prove his worth to both security and guardians at RTX Australia, but just can't seem to get into the building. Is he even the real Joel Heyman? How can we be sure?

    It's because you weren't in character! Bust out your RvB voice and they'd have let you in.

    Of course this is after he rocks up on stage with a basket of things that he'd stolen from everywhere at RTXAU.

    Can't go to RTX? Story of my life

    I was a guardian at RTX AU and actually witnessed this.

    I heard the guardian struggling to tell this guy that he's not allowed to enter through the side door. It was more or less like this...

    Guardian: I'm sorry you can't go this way.

    Guy: no, it's okay

    Guardian: no, you're not allowed to enter through this door.

    Guy: no really, it's ok.

    Guardian: sorry, but you have to go around.

    Guy: I just need to get over there.

    This is when I walked over. The guardian looked all panicked. Which I guess is fair since he told this shady looking guy to leave but refused. The guardian informed me whats going on, I looke at the shady man and realised it was Joel.

    You know that moment when you find something funny but you shouldn't laugh out loud so you just internally lose it? That was me. Somehow I managed to mutter 'dude, that's Joel. It's ok.'

    Turns out this guardian hadn't watched a lot of RT stuff, he just volunteered because he likes working at conventions. Nice guy.

      I'm laughing just because they called him shady. I can just see it.

      I hope next time they give all guardians a list of guests with photographs so that they can refer to it when they need to check.

      It is kinda funny that of all the guardians there Joel meet the one who didn't know who he is.

      I was actually wondering how Joel finally got in :)

      Best unexpected closure ever. Of all time.

    (I was hoping they'd make this an RTAA)

    Aww Joel it's okay we know who you are.

    I'd recognise the heck out of you.

    I think jack put the guardians up to this for giving out his number during RTX 2013 lol

    I'm around 60% sure the guardian did it to screw with Joel. That's atleast what I like to think.

      The Guardian legit didn't know who he was. We had quite a few people who just volunteer for all the cons and they were picked for their experience.

    I was one of the guardians on the Registration Team this year and know exactly who this is XD I was on the same duty and I had a similar experience with Hex from Good Game until I saw her PA and recognised her.

    People seemed to presume that the Guardian didn't know who Joel was, but I feel it's much more likely that they were trying to get exactly this kind of story out of it. If I was a guardian, I feel there's a fair chance I would've done the same thing to Joel, especially since I know he could go around to any other door and still get inside from another guardian.

      Even Burnie said he once said no to a photo with a fan because of "Time" and admitted on the podcast he said no for a better story later. The story is the most important part!

      Honestly, RT is such a big production studio now, with so many shows, it's entirely possible, that particular fan doesn't watch their live action content. Also Joel's face doesn't feature as prominently as it used to, in the RT Shorts, and on the Podcasts. Hopefully with Day 5's release, we'll get some more Joel goodness.

      The guy who did this isn't actually a Rooster Teeth fan, so he honestly didn't know who Joel was.

      The guardian just volunteered for cons and didn't particularly know RT, including Joel unfortunately for him. Confirmed to not know.

    Is there a max IQ to be a guardian at RTX Australia?

    • Jimminy FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      no I don't think so, i'm not sure how guardians are selected, but IQ is probably not part of the selecting process.

      It's a very Australian thing to do. One makes up some bullshit, others will jump onboard. Harmless jokes really, like vegemite.

    The funny thing is that I could totally see Burnie, or anyone at RT really paying a Guardian to keep Joel out lol
