My Unicorn

Every time I run into Jon Hamm, something amazing is about to or just had happen in my life. So far, it has happened twice and I forced the universe for a third time. It didn’t happen…


Dear Jon Hamm,

Hope this finds you and that if finds you well. I’ll try to make this as simple as I can because I feel like an 8 year-old-fan girl right now. 

My name is Mustafa Ulker a.k.a Moose. I’m that weird guy who ran into you last night near The Broad. I’m sorry, I got crazy excited when I saw you… I lost my words. I lost my mind. I forgot to introduce myself...this is beginning to sound like a Kanye West song. And of course, I forgot to tell you the important things that I wanted to tell you…

I told you that we met 6 years ago at the Clio Awards Show. I’m the kid from Istanbul who won the student digital gold award (you can ask Google if you want). And you hand me the award in the backstage. (photo attached) 

Afterwards, I cried in the bathroom for two hours.

Or I didn’t.

Believe it or not, on that day, my life completely changed. As I told you, now I have a great job. I live in DTLA. I told you about all my small wins in a couple minutes. I’m sorry if I bored you with those, you have an Emmy. And while I was telling you these things, you were petting Bandit. And you said, “I like your dog”. Gender-neutral, I liked that even though clearly Bandit is a “he”. It was pretty sweet, Jon Hamm. I’ll tell everybody you said that. Maybe put it on his Instagram, too. (@banditandarf)

Anyways, what I forgot to tell you is that I got married six days ago to the most beautiful woman in the universe. And believe it or not, my life changed once again. 

Since we met for the first time, amazing things have been happening every day. This morning I found a dollar in my pocket! Okay, maybe it was a quarter. Still, I can’t believe it! Like running into you (literally).

So, I've come up with a conclusion—whenever I see you, something amazing is happening in my life! It’s like you’re my unicorn! Yes, I know it might suck to be a unicorn sometimes, as you only eat grass, hay, and skepticism. But this is a true story. You’re my unicorn, Jon Hamm.

Now that you know I got married, our ceremony will be in Turkey, soon. It’s gonna be an epic village wedding in my sweet 80-year-old grandma’s home. I promised her I’ll have surprise guests from America. If you can’t come, I’ll randomly ask Bryan Cranston. If you can come, that would be the third time I’ll see my unicorn and that would be the craziest story ever!!!

Please come!

Moose / a.k.a Mustafa Ulker

P.S.: You can stay at my grandma's.

P.P.S.: You can bring your friends and a date. Everyone is welcome.

P.P.P.S.: This is not a joke! Or maybe it is. :slightly_smiling_face: 

P.P.P.P.S.: I’m not a serial killer.
