There is one more part to the story of our trip to Miami
...and its probably the funniest part. I had to wait to tell you this, or to show you any of the photos, until I'd first shown them to Continental, which KILLED me while I was writing the three-part saga last month. I know what you're saying: how in the hell could there be MORE photos from Miami? And how could you have told a story in three parts and left out the best part?
I had my reasons. Just know that Act IV, my friends, is the "Secret Song" to this trilogy. The easter egg. Not a crappy secret song like the one at the end of Limp Bizkit's "Significant Other" album. A good secret song like the one at the end of U2's "Greatest Hits 1980-1990" album. Here's the backstory:
Before we left for Miami, we had a party at Continental's office while he was out of town. The purpose was to get photos of all of us wearing the Texas Flag sequin vest that we planned to give him
-- and then include a photo album of those photos with the vest.
While we were at his office, the Fireman's Girlfriend decided to borrow Continental's Justin Timberlake bobblehead doll. I'm not going to get into the ins and outs of why he has a Timberlake bobblehead, but suffice it to say he does, and we borrowed it. She told me, "JT is coming to Miami with us!" I figured, that will be hilarious, right? For like five minutes, not a second more.
I have never been happier in my life to be wrong. And oh, was I wrong. W-R-O-N-G. JT came everywhere with us: through security at the airport, buckled into a seat on the airplane, to the bars, to the beach, to nightclubs, into bed, everywhere. And us being designers, we took photos of all of this.
Unfortunately, the first day's photos -- mainly the airport ones -- were lost forever when two Nebraska cameras were destroyed on the second night of the trip. Luckily, enough photos from our other cameras survived to tell the tale of JT in Miami.
This is a funky Flash photo gallery that I generated from Flickr, and I'm not entirely convinced its the best way to view these but what the heck, its worth a shot, right? Be sure to click the photo to read the captions. And now, without further ado, I present to you...JT Goes to Miami.
