So the Chief and I engaged my buddy who works at VH1 to put together a video / photo montage with music and voice overs for his chief's dinner. We had the great idea of ending the video with a song the Bergen County Bagpiper's do, and when this song plays to have the actual bagpipers lined up outside, and play along.
When we got to the venue, things started going wrong. First, the video guy was nowhere to be found. Then we realized they set up the video equipment but not the audio equipment. Finally, with 260 people watching, they couldn't get the video to play at all. The bag pipers were lined up outside the door (secretly) and after 10 lonnng minutes, they got the video to play. We choreographed the pipers and they chimed in perfectly on the second measure of the song at the end of the video, surprising everyone.
They came in and played a sick show that everyone enjoyed and is still talking about.
