By now, you've surely seen video footage of the inimitable Tom Green running out onstage during Tila Tequila's Insane Clown Posse debacle. His mini-performance is, and was, absolutely hysterical, and was the one redeeming moment of an otherwise ugly showdown. Since I've become a character in this episode elsewhere, might as well tell you that I'd just pulled up to the stage on a golf cart with Tom Green, his cameraman Tony, Upchuck the Clown (couldn't make this shit up), and a driver; Tom had met Tila for the first time on the airplane to the Gathering, and she'd requested his presence via walkie-talkied runners. So he runs out, does a life-changing running man, gets nailed by debris, hugs Tequila and walks off. This 56 seconds of video I shot is amusing, but even more amusing in slow motion.
