Breast cancer? *lightbulb goes off*

Oh NOW I get it! "80085" is obviously "boobs" but now I get it because it's for BREAST CANCER research...

duhr. At first I thought Jemaine was just proclaiming his love of brists...which he was probably doing also...

:lol: Jemaine suddenly went from being a 35-year-old sex god to a geeky 14-year-old boy, right before my very eyes. What an adorable nerd!

Spoken like a Bretero. :P

I saw the tour manager had back those things to the girls and heard her say they signed this and that and took pix. Very cool.

Since Jem loves boobs he wants all boobs to be healthy and good. What a guy! :lol:

Someone posted a video on facebook of them singing Sellotape during the finale! It's brilliant! Bret's so cute when he messes up. You see the whole water throwing incident beforehand as well as the great part of them talking in the middle of the song:

Great quality on that vid. Probably the best fanmade one Ive seen from the tour.

I wonder how long I could have gotten away with filming with my vid camera. :D

Wow, those 2 people at the end shot out of their seats like bats outta hell! Crazy....

We will sing along loudly in Detroit- when we are instructed to! That was kind of a quiet sing-along....

Very good video...I wanted to ask the person in front to stop moving their head so much, lol.....

Is there a way to see this if you're not on Facebook? I'm embarrased to say that, having seen 3 shows close together, I don't actually remember Sellotape at Philly. :oops: I remember it vividly at Radio City coz we were all standing with the lights on and we were on the jumbotran grinning and swaying like morons. It was magical. :lol:

I wasn't going to post this but I simply can't resist anymore because every time I see it I die of laughter. For those of you at the meet and greet you may remember this guy.

Hmm its tricksy. It isn't there in my cache. If its streamed then its harder. Hmmm :hrm:

I can grab audio no problem. Video is a bit different.

I wonder if I make my profile public or some such for you.

I remember Sellotape! And I sang! And I talked to you about it afterwards. Don't you remember the whole "In the name of all that is holy please let Bret do that at the 10 show!" Because he walked the length of the stage putting his mic in random people's faces, even all the way over on J's side but nobody was singing... I would've happily sung in his mic. But I think people just didn't know the song...

And I don't think anyone will ever forget him. Bret obviously had the better security guy.

From what the vid shows, you remember the better one. No offense to any of you there- I know you were singing loud and proud!! But as a whole, the Philly crowd was so quiet, especially compared to what y'all did at Radio City! :) Bret brought the mike stand back up to himself and whisper-sang at the end...... :|

The NY one was more spontaneous, and therefore ... better.

The thought crossed my mind in Philly that "please don't bring the mic to me." 'cause whenever I hear that song, it plays in my head as brown people white people and I was afraid I'd say just that. :lol:
