This is how Umarak meets the Mane Six and Spike goes in My Little Pony: The Movie.
Umarak the Hunter: Oh, I give anything to be jamming up there with the big boys.
Twilight Sparkle: Why don't you?
Applejack: Couldn't you just ask?
Pinkie Pie: Say a few nice words?
Rarity: Wear something spectacular?
Fluttershy: Meet a few animals?
Rainbow Dash: Show off a few awesome moves?
Spike: Tell them a little bit about yourself?
Umarak the Hunter: Oh I tried once.
[A flashback of Umarak's last attempt is shown]
[The flashback shows Umarak jumping onto the stage, using his bow as a guitar, and ponies start shooting at him as he runs away]
Umarak the Hunter: It didn't end well.
