    But will the audience stick around through the seven hour intermission?

    Who would by a ticket to this thing?
  • My two favorite lines in the article....

    "The feat took her 53 hours with the help of a support team." Yes, they illegally fed her, illegally changed her suit for her, Illegally drug a streamer in front if her, and probably illegally allowed her to rest on the boat for 7 hours.

    "She even fake-swims onstage." Yes, just like she fake-swam the Cuba/Key West channel

    A few hits of Peruvian north slope, and I'd attend this over the pink Floyd laser show.

    That's a bold statement. The Floyd laser show I saw in 1984 was pretty damned awesome, but then again it's very difficult not to rubberneck a train-wreck such as this. Any reviews on her singing prowess?

    I smell a Tony award.

    All I remember of the pink Floyd laser show is waking up in Central Park the next morning. #bigapplecamping

    I seriously just checked the date on my phone. Nope. Not the first of April yet.

    David, Why would you waste perfectly good Peruvian north slope on anything Nyad related? FYI - These Pink Floyd tribute bands like Aussie Pink Floyd and UK Pink Floyd are really really good, but maybe that's the Peruvian north slope talking. ;-)
