In an Instagram video shared on Monday, the 30-year-old singer stood in front of a poster advertising the concerts, pointing it out to passerby on the New York City street.
“Yeah, yeah that’s crazy,” he says to people walking down the sidewalk. “These guys, huh? Yeah, Jonas Brothers. That’s nuts.”
Though most passerby ignored the Jonas Brothers member, one person stopped and said he had heard of the band — but he didn’t appear to recognize Jonas.
Though Jonas wasn’t able to find any fans on the N.Y.C. street, he and his brothers fared better at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, New Jersey on Monday night.
The boy band took home the VMA award for best pop for their hit song “Sucker” and Jonas’ wife Sophie Turner congratulated him by sharing some behind-the-scenes moments to Instagram after the big night.
“OMG CONGRATULATIONS @joejonas @nickjonas @kevinjonas 🎉 here are a few of my favorite moments from tonight!” Turner wrote in the caption for the series of photos.
The first picture features Jonas sitting backstage at the show. The Jonas Brothers pre-taped their VMAs performance at the famed Stone Pony stage in Asbury Park, New Jersey on Sunday night.
When they ended the song — for which they won best collaboration — without so much as a smooch, Turner threw up her hands, while Jonas appeared to be laughing along.
