Maria from Barcelona proposed a post about wrap parties….
Aside from reckless drunkenness, wanton debauchery and the inevitable hook-up, my favorite phenomena at wrap parties is watching crew people, who by the end of the show were ready to go all Ultimate Cage Match on each other, suddenly act as if they are best friends and utter the words “I can’t wait to work with you again!” At which point my eyes want to roll right out of their sockets.
Unfortunately most of the wrap parties I’ve attended have NOT been in the “You should have been there” category. Most have been downright lame. I’m just not into watching the married director hook up with the young P.A.’s and make a fool of himself.
But there are two that have found memories for me. During the first memorable party, the young hottie lead actor came up to me in a drunken stupor, grabbed my hand pulled me to the bar and said, “Let’s do shots!” Who was I to say no? So, arm and arm we did shots together. Now when I see him on the big screen I remember, I did shots with that guy. The second memorable wrap party, not so much wild just mostly intoxicating and took place while on a job in Jamaica. All I can say about that wrap party is when in Jamaica…ya, mon.
So, I ask my dear readers to tell me about your wildest or coolest wrap party. I’ve heard tales of Mr. R&B artist playing for the crew etc. I’m sure there are those of you who have been to a few kick-ass wrap parties; let me hear about it. Here’s your incentive: Best party story wins a free Matrix Reloaded Revolutions bag and the envy and adoration of all who read your entry.
Rules: comments must be PG-13/14A/U-16/etc. in nature. Winner will be chosen by a poll of readers, post will remain up for two weeks to give you some time to remember the wild party or ask friends to remind you what you did at said wild party. Matrix bag is new, and will be shipped slowest possible to an address of your choice. No returns. If you don’t like it, sell it on eBay. Good luck, don’t be afraid to comment. I promise it won’t hurt. And it’s perfectly all right to say “this one crew person.” We promise not to think that it’s you.
