Hit Parade SNAP! TV

Last night we shot a SNAP! TV at the 'Hit Parade,' which is part of the Suoni Festival.

11 people lay on the side walk outside Sala Rossa and each tapped a microphone on the ground 1,000 times. Once they had finished their 1,000, they got up and stepped away.

It took a good 15-20 minutes or so. We took a few bets on who was going to be the last man lying and I don't like to boast, but I basically had the last 3 sorted.

It was interesting to watch as the participants varied their beats throughout the 'performance.' The last two participants actually finished at the same time - a guy and a girl. The guy was tapping super fast (I'm guessing he was up to 567 when everyone else finished). In contrast, the girl (probably at 989) was tapping few and far between. They had a bit of a beat going between the two of them which was really nice.

Shannon was our host and nabbed a few interviews with the participants as well as Christof, the organizer. He did a similar event in Seoul, South Korea. There was a pretty good turn out and cars were forced to slow down and drive around the hordes of passersby, stopping for a gander.

We'll have the SNAP! TV up soon so I'll keep you posted!

A big thanks again to the boys at 'Dans le Sac' for shooting. You guys rock!
