Grand entrance

Posted February 15, 2011

Lady Gaga arrived at the Grammy Awards Sunday in an enclosed egg, carried Cleopatra-style by near-naked models. The stunt was a promotion for her new single "Born This Way," which she later performed after hatching.

If you were going to make a grand entrance for some event how would you be transported? Have fun with this.

I could see Kelcey Carlson in a giant running shoe and Elizabeth Gardner in a spiffy new kayak. I wouldn't mind arriving in an oversized MJ Franks or Martin guitar. How about you? There could be prizes.

    In my 22nd year of teaching, I'd have to arrived in a tricked-out school bus! I'd have my calculator in hand and camera hung around my neck. I've always taught math but have become the resident photographer of my students & all of their events. High school and middle school students make life interesting - never a dull moment & wouldn't trade it for the world!

    I think I'd like to pop up out of a coffin with Elton John's "Funeral for a Friend" playing!

    Being lowered to the ground by what appears to be a space alien space ship would be pretty cool. The plank is lowered and out walks just little ole me. LOL. And then just have the space ship fly off, and I act like nothing unusual.

    I would like to be carried into a Hurricanes game "Cleopatra-style" on a chaise lounge on the shoulders of the Carolina Hurricanes - with seats at center ice at the glass! Not dreaming for much, huh???

    A limo. Do the the 4 Horsemen way.
    Let the "theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey" play!

    Hard to beat ANY of the 1000s of "Nature Boy" entrances.

    For the ages!!!

    I want to explode out of the bag of a giant set of pipes while a pipe and drum corps are playing Alba an Aigh.

    The NC Dept. of Agriculture has a giant engine-powered shopping cart that tours the area at events to promote NC grown products. I would like to enter in the cart throwing out good ole NC peanuts to the crowd.
