Deflating Pikachu aggressively pulled offstage during performance

Looks like a high pressure gig.

Something something United Airlines something something


#4

How about “The two Pikachu wranglers were immediately given job offers from United and Delta.”?


#5

The term “wrangler” seems really appropriate this time.


#6

I guess they were in such a hurry to get him off stage because they wanted to avoid traumatizing children with the image of a deflated Pikachu, which is kinda cute.


#7

At least they don’t keep inflating. A giant possibly exploding pikachu sounds much more traumatic.


#8

Something similar happened to me once when I was with a girl. A bit of wrangling set things right as well…


#9

Why did it take 9 people?


#10

How shocking!


#11

Especially with flying kids going everywhere!


#12

Why do I know this song?


#13

Tossup which was more traumatizing then. That was pretty ugly. Based on the dancer’s reaction, I don’t think they had much field of view out of that costume, and then suddenly the MIB arrive and want to play mosh pit.


#14

There seemed to be some confusion at first. The first guy grabbed the Pikachu, then the second guy grabbed the first guy. (Perhaps he thought the first guy was a wild pikachu fetishist?)

I wonder if the first guy was a stagehand and the second guy and ensuing MIB response was that they thought he was just some random dude.

#18

I hear there’s a pill for that.


#19

I got yer deflated Pikachu, right here . . .

I didn’t have my sound on. Was it Deflator Mouse?
