I took my Mini in for service and got a black base model Cooper as a loaner car. With no iPod connection I turned on the radio and within 5 minutes heard the news, U2 had already arrived in town and are filming a video at GM Place. The radio also announced that the first 4,000 people to arrive at the venue would get to appear in the video.
So I parked my loaner car at my parent's apartment and too a cab there. Within about two minutes I had found Clay who I used to work with at the Paramount and who is a giant U2 fan as well. Clay let me duck in at the start of the line and about two minutes later I got a wristband for entrance.
So I'm going to be in a U2 video. Which is total sweetness.
