WHAT ARE YOU FUCKING GUYS DOING UP THERE? [Jul. 29th, 2004|10:21 pm]

If you watched Kerry's speech on CNN tonight, when it was over you got a curious bonus . CNN had a microphone open somewhere near where one of the technical directors of the convention was shouting instructions to the workers in the rafters. For 5 solid minutes, all you got was U2's "It's a Beautiful Day" and this guy shouting "GO BALLOONS! GO BALLOONS! WE NEED MORE BALLOONS!"

Then someone dumped a load of confetti and you heard "NO CONFETTI YET! GO BALLOONS! GO BALLOONS! ALRIGHT CONFETTI!" After a while with balloons piddling down, you hear him say "WHAT ARE YOU FUCKING GUYS DOING UP THERE?"

At which point they cut the microphone and went to Wolf Blitzer. Amazing.

NPR apparently wasn't clued in, and they were saying "this is the slowest balloon drop we've ever seen."

Hi- larious.

hahahah that's pretty funny. I was channel surfing when kerry came on so i stopped on msnbc and missed that.

what did you think of his speech? I thought that it was very 'feel good' but not a lot of substance - and that he needs to work on his timing more. I did like the bit where he told people to check out his website to get more of his platform though.
