JJJ: You guys have teamed up with Nintendo for your tour. Is it true that you all got to design your own video game characters for Mario Kart 7? BTR: Yeah, they asked it if we’d be down to create our own characters and we all jumped at the opportunity to do that, and more importantly design our car. They also decided to come on tour [with us] and set up kiosks for all our fans so they could get to know the game too!
JJJ: How fun! Were you guys big gamers growing up? KS: I used to play Mario Kart growing up and Star Fox. JM: Yeah Star Fox is a great one. My dogs are named after that game! Although, the second one I didn’t realize until after I named him, but Falco came from that game.
JJJ: Since you’ve been driving all over the country on this tour, have you guys ever fallen out of one of your bunks while traveling on your bus? BTR: (Laughs) That’s a good question! JM: No, we haven’t fallen out of them just from traveling, but I know I’ve definitely fallen out of the top bunk when I was really sleepy and trying to get out really early in the morning and I missed it.
JJJ: Besides being a band, you all are also on your own self-titled Nickelodeon show. If it were to suddenly end, would you guys still make music and continue to tour? BTR: We’re going to be a band as long as our record label allows us to. We don’t have any set dates on when we’re going to really try to work on our own stuff. We’re dedicated to BTR until the very end and we don’t even know when that is.
