I Was About to Introduce Robin Thicke And Then This Happened
What's that thing they say about Murphy's Law? Whenever something bad can go wrong it most likely will. That's exactly what happened moments before I went up in front of thousands to introduce Robin Thicke.
First I need to point out. I'm actually a HUGE fan of Robin Thicke's talent. I think he has one of the best voices in entertainment. I listened to him before the hit single Blurred Lines became one of the biggest songs on the world. I even flew down to Las Vegas, rented a Ferrari for the night and saw him preform of the Cosmopolitan. So when I found out that I would be one of the personalities to bring him on-stage. I was smitten.
The festival as a whole was a very enjoyable experience. I watched the other bands and performers knowing that the moment of introducing Robin Thicke was inching closer and closer. When the last act wrapped up I was informed by the stage manager that the show was running behind and I would have to be quick. I stood by side stage and started to ramp myself up. I could see thousands of people waiting to see Robin. For some reason (and I've never done this before) I started jumping and stretching to loosen up. I went into a deep lunge and then I heard it. The leg of my shorts ripped wide open. From crotch to leg, it was all out there. As soon as I stood up they handed me the mike and told me it was time to go on.
So I walked out there, with it all showing. Thank goodness, it was a Hanes day. Not lost in the moment I pointed out to the crowd that my pants ripped. Even Robin mentioned it when I met him.
