I guess that inflatable pig that floated into California’s desert sky at the end of Roger Waters’ three-hour set at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival wasn’t exactly intentional. Concert organizers are now offering a $10,000 reward and four free lifetime tickets to the Indio festival for the person who returns the lost prop unharmed.
Unleashed during a rendition of Pink Floyd’s “Animals,” the school-bus size swine was adorned in graffiti with the phrase “Don’t be led to the slaughter” sprawled on its side along with a cleaver-wielding Uncle Sam. "A pig got loose last night," producer Bill Fold said Monday, a day after Waters closed out the three-day festival. "We really like him and want him back.... It's a very emotional time for us."
Waters reportedly muttered vulnerably, “That’s my pig” as he helplessly watched the hog comes loose from it’s strings following pyrotechnic tricks. Anyone with information of its whereabouts is advised to email email@example.com. For four free tickets to every Coachella for the rest of my lifetime, I’ll hop on board for a little trip to the stars, how about you?
