WHAT HAPPENS TO TWO GUYS WHO HAVE BEEN ON BOOK TOUR FOR A WEEK, TRAVELING TO A DIFFERENT CITY EVERY DAY AND NOT GETTING MUCH SLEEP
Since Ridley and I are pretty much incoherent in the video, here's the context: During our book tour for The Bridge To Never Land, we've been presenting a slideshow. Near the beginning, there's a picture of me with the Wienermobile and my son, Rob. Later on in the slideshow we had set up a joke, wherein Ridley, who was talking about something else, would suddenly show another picture of the Wienermobile. I won't go through the joke here, but trust me, it was funny.
The problem was, Ridley could never remember that the second Wienermobile slide was in there. So instead of setting up the joke, he'd launch into a lengthy anecdote about what he thought was the next slide, a photograph of NASA astronaut Cady Coleman reading one of our books in the International Space Station. Ridley would go through this big buildup about space, then push the button for the next slide, and there would be... the Wienermobile! This would be followed by puzzled looks from the audience, then Ridley turning to look at the screen and flinching violently at the sight of the Wienermobile, then 30 seconds of Ridley attempting to stammer out an explanation, getting no help from me, because I was busy trying not to wet my pants.
So anyway, that's what we're discussing in this incoherent video, which was shot in Mission Viejo, California, on a night when Ridley had finally remembered the second Wienermobile slide.
You kind of had to be there.
