Comments: August 2001, Eric Amber and Al Millar hastily depart Windsor, Ontario in Eric’s car on their way to Waterloo for the Busker’s Carnival. En route, they run out of gas. Waiting for help, the two decide to pull a wide stunt on the buskers who are about 30 minutes behind them on a chartered bus. Magic Brian sat down with Al, then connected with Eric and had them both tell their version of the same story each of which contained a few subtle and hilarious differences. We then took both versions and smashed together to perpetuate and grow the legend. Enjoy!
