So I'm at a music festival - it's VirginFest, which is run by Virgin Mobile. It started out well, because tickets for this particular venue were free. I'm seeing bands like Taking Back Sunday, Weezer, Jet, and Blink-182 free. A helicopter flies very high overhead, and all of a sudden two people jump out. Next thing I know, they activate some sort of jetpack and land on the roof of the pavilion in front of us (we're outside). Next thing I know, Richard Branson (head of Virgin Mobile) is walking around on the roof - he jumped out of the helicopter and flew in. Pretty wild.

Wow, I might have to look on youtube in a day or two to see if anyone captured video of it, or if Virgin put it on the net anywhere. That would be awesome to see!

Have fun!

I checked earlier and it wasn't on Youtube. An article in the paper stated that Richard Branson only greeted the skydivers, but we all saw someone land, pull off the flight suit, and reveal himself to be Richard Branson.

I've always liked V-Fest. He was at the show I went to last year too, but he was just off-stage watching the show. Lucky you :)
