Fans love to show their support for who they admire, and this method of wishing your star a Happy Birthday is one of the most impressive.

A banner plane – that is, a plane with a banner trailing behind it with a message of the purcahser’s choosing – was purchased by a group of Darren Criss fans to fly over the Los Angeles skies yesterday, February 5. The banner read, “Happy 26th Darren Criss. The Sky’s the Limit” and circled Paramount Studios, where Glee is shot, for a hour.

Luckily, Criss was on set that day and was excused from inside the studios so he could head out and take a look at the gift from his fans. He shot this video of himself checking out the plane and message:

Fans outside of Paramount Studios captured the plane on video to prove it happened, in case Criss wasn’t able to see it:

We’ve personally seen this type of fan dedication happen once before. While at The Perks of Being a Wallflower Los Angeles premiere last year, fans rented the same type of plane to fly a message over Los Angeles for Logan Lerman. Unfortunately, Lerman didn’t actually attend the premiere. We captured it on video, though. Below is a still:

Criss seemed very impressed by the banner, and we applaud the fans for organizing such a treat!

    yeah thats cool but last year fans got together and made a big donation to The Trevor Project in Diana Agron’s honor for her birthday. in my humbled opinion that is a much more worthwhile gift. not to take anything from these guys of cause but yeah.
    and i can imagine they probably wanted to be original and all that…

      The Darren Criss Army also raised a bunch of money for the Trevor Project! In addition to the plane.

      All extra proceeds from the fund raising went to the Trevor Project. So it’s a meaningful gift AND an awesome gift :)

      Lol, and the Klaine fandom (which is basically also part of the Darren fandom) has raised over $44k for all bunches of charity since they started the Box Scene Project. The same group who organized this also raised money for charity IN ADDITION to the chartered plane – they just wanted to give Darren something for himself, besides all the gifts for charity. So…your point being?

    Darren deserved this! He is such an amazing human being and he is an inspiration to others! I Love him sooo much! :) <3
