Disasterpieces - The Launch - Pt 1
Posted on February 12, 2008On November 1st in New York City, the Roadrunner US office led a 'Maggot March' to promote the upcoming Slipknot DVD.
For those who were not there, this was a spectacle which needs to be seen to be believed - hundreds of fans and industry folk in the Grand Ballroom of the Manhattan Center, all celebrating and watching the upcoming Slipknot 'Disasterpieces' DVD.
The atmosphere was a total carnival - hot dog, candy floss & popcorn stands, fire breathers, a man hammering nails up his nose, giveaways, a belly dancer, three bars (of course), and a bug eating chick. Clown, Paul, Chris, and Craig from Slipknot were present - all gathered on stage to introduce the DVD.
We present to you the first of a two part video installment showing this party to all who could not attend, and to those who wish to re-live the experience. WATCH IT HERE.
Did You Know? There was a maggot at the event by the name of Joe (dressed in the perfect Clown get up). Joe was the FIRST person in line that day, arriving at 5am. Joe has a (sic) tattoo on his right leg. All four members of Slipknot autographed the tattoo, as Joe had plans of turning the autographs into tattoos the very next day.
