Showers, airplane seats and economy cars aren't exactly made to the specifications of the very tall. But aside from that they get the benefit of visibility - both the 'seeing' and 'being seen' variety.
It takes a certain kind of stand-up gent to forgo these benefits in public for the sake of others and literally take a knee,. or two. Recently at a Halsey concert, a fellow fan noticed that bit of chivalry on display and made an internet note of it.
Haley Lough shared a photo on Twitter of the kneeling fan.
The man's kindness made the rounds on the internet, eventually making it all the way up to the main event herself.
For attempting to make himself considerately inconspicuous, he found himself being seen in the best possible way.
MTV's TRL even gave him a nod for his act of kindness.
A hundred thousand likes on Twitter later and our kindly giant came forward with a grateful blush.
OMG, that's me!!! I'm 6' 10" and try very hard not to block people's views at concerts. Honestly, never in a million years would've thought this would be recognized on social media because it's just what I've been doing for years. Thank you everyone for your kind words!!!— CG_MusicFan (@CG_MusicFan) July 26, 2018
And that kind of nod from someone with millions of fans like Halsey can really throw you for a loop.
Especially if your Twitter handle is CG_MusicFan.

The Twittersphere, meanwhile, stood to recognize the kneeling giant.

He payed for VIP was front and center and gave it up so the people around him could see— Alana Scott (@Alana_scott14) July 26, 2018
Takes a real hero to be physically uncomfortable for the sake of others.
Eyo! That's my dude @CG_MusicFan! I've known this guy personally for many years and all your assumptions are true. The most genuine, kind hearted, humble and passionate music fan I've ever met. He's been doing stuff like this unnoticed for decades. A silent hero of humanity.— Kris Kepley (@BPMDreamTempo) July 27, 2018
