Default YetiBlog® - Berlin

It's absolute madness. Between the meetings and presentations to the big bosses, I've barely had time to go anywhere.

The day before yesterday I took a short 20 minute walk through the smallest walk around. At this rate, I may not see all of IFA.
More things have been happening at the Harman Show.

Yesterday, to my embarassment, I could not open up the top of the Spyder. The sales assistants are smiling at me, the girl in charge shrugs. She's never seen Alfa Spyder before. Why Sir, Don't you guys have syders everywhere in India. Yup. We have the web slinging kind.

I finally give in and get Andy. Andy Wehrmeyer is another legend. I have a video of him using a powerful car amplifier, directly connected to the circular saw. Using a 60Hz test tone, he drove the circular saw from the speaker terminals and cut clean through another car amplifier. I like this guy.

Andy opens it up for me. It's a mixture of manual and automated nonsense. I've spent 2 half days shooting for the Indian TV crews. I am helping them around. We're the only hall where an Indian guy is on the team and I get them some amazing interviews with the legends PLUS I open up all the cars for them.

While we shoot, we're secured by the security guys. Man now that's some serious security. I mean serious. No smile. You could tell him his mum in law had an upset tummy and there wouldn't be a crack on his face. Nice.

I go to see the Blue Man Group again, in the evening. They have shifted from the Adagio to the Saturn. It is, undoubtedly the greatest experience of my life. Again.
Photos are strictly not permitted. I know of 13000 people back home I want to share this with. I cannot.
And then it happens. The show's over. And they come outside. One dream comes true. I tell them that I'm their greatest fan. But of course, they stare at me blankly. They're blue men.

2 nights in a row people have been taking us to Asian dinners. First night Thai - nice food. 2nd night Indonesian - outstanding. It's a good thing this is my 7thtime into Berlin or I'd feel like a fool for not eating the local German Delicacies. I am full of German beer though.

Photos will follow in the next post. My head hurts. Partied hard last night.

Lucky you! Didn't you take an autograph or a picture of them outside the show?

And keep those photos coming! pomp-up-theee-jam!

I was like a little boy, so excited I had a headrush from getting in the auditorium.
These are the experiences life is made of.







And finally - a drumroll for one of the most treasured photos of my life. That is correct Team-BHP, remember you saw it here first. A world exclusive!!

The Yeti® meets the Blue Man Group®, in the flesh.

I believe it may be on the internet. If you cannot find it, I will you tube it for you.
