Published Apr 29, 2008Hey world, Roger Waters needs your help hes lost his pig.
The two-storey inflatable swine was last seen Sunday night during Coachellas closing moments when the 64-year-old singer set it loose as he performed a set of Pink Floyd classics. After the release of the air-borne projectile, the pig somehow freed itself from its tethers and zigzagged off into the Californian skies. The performer has seen neither head nor curly tail of the beast since, and now, according to a press release, he wants it back.
The release, which looks legitimate but nevertheless has the making of a well-devise prank, reads: "COACHELLA organizers are offering $10,000 and four (4) festival tickets for life in exchange for the safe return of the two-story inflatable pig that broke loose during Roger Waters' set on the final night (Sunday, April 27) of the 2008 COACHELLA VALLEY MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL. The pig escaped and floated into the desert sky just prior to the intermission between Roger Waters' back-to-back sets marking the only back-to-back COACHELLA sets by one artist in the critically acclaimed festival's history.
As of yet, no one has stepped forward to receive the reward for the pigs safe return, but several sources have reported seeing the animal at Peter Framptons yard sale. If you have any information on the freed pig, authorities urge you to email [email protected].
