    One of my favorite threads in the trash can, was about the most embarressing exhibitions, so I thought that I would bring back this great thread with a bit more of an extention.

    How about what is the most embarressing, fun, or just the plain scariest exhibitions that anyone has ever seen.


    For me no other exhibition exeplifies this thread then Evgeni's Plushenko's "Baby Sex Bomb" program.

    One of those comments is funny - "Damn if Oksana Baiul Tonya Harding and Evgeny Pleshunko somehow created another human being this would be the result. Seriously this is a mess."

    The scariest one I ever saw was Phillipe Candeloro's George of the Jungle. He skated with a monkey, stripped down to a leopard print speedo and jumped in the judge's lap. The most comical part was listening to Scott Hamilton trying to put a positive spin on it. He finally just stopped talking.

    Here is part of it - the clip ends before he jumps into the judge's lap.

    me too!!! :eek:

    I remember it! (but I won't see it again now because that music always stuck in my mind :wall: )

    LOL. I saw that live too and I was all happy to see Petrenko for the first time, had spoken so much about how great he was and so to my friends coming with me (and they were not skating-fans)...and he did that one!

    The scary part is that isn't the first program he did with that doll! There was a dance competition one where he had a number on his back.

    OMG I have always wanted to see a professional do Rocky Horror on Ice. That was great.

    Here is Dan Hollander doing So You Think You Can Dance (with some excellent Beyonce moves thrown in).

    And from Dan - why not get Dick to do your commentary!

    I always loved Viktor's Mambo #5 and Plushy's Sex Bomb (but NOT his "Baby Sex Bomb." I liked a number of Philippe's eligible programs, but I really thought his "George of the Jungle" program was an embarrassment to pro skating. :eek:

    OMG I had never seen Stephane's cat routine! Hysterical. Where did he find that music?!!! You gotta give the boy credit. He's got cohones. lol

    I agree Candeloro's George of the Jungle was embarrassing. Hey anyone who can make Scotty stop talking you know something crazy is happening.

    And Sex Bomb. Just no Plush.

    :wideeyes: I can't believe you've never seen that! :p That program is seriously the most voidy and hysterical thing I have ever seen on ice, yes, even more so than Debi Thomas's Wanda Beezle and Laurent Tobel's cross-dresser exhibitions. :rofl: It's like he didn't know whether he wanted to portray a cat or a lady bug, so he chose a red/black cat costume. Meeeooooowwwwwww! Love ya, Steph! <3:swoon: What's really weird and awkward is how serious the audience is in that video. I watch it and I can't control my laughter every time.

    Wasn't Stephane horribly embarrassed by the Cat exhibition, and tried to get all traces of it off of the internet or something?

    :lol: I remember this so well, I still have the 1984 Olys on tape. You have a good memory, but it was Klimova & Ponomarenko who had the embarrassing costume problem. :)

    Klimova & Ponomarenko 1984 Olys Gala

    He showed so much personality in his exhibitions, but it was this exhibition that I find most sensitive and poignant (i.e. good):

    Chris Bowman 1987 US Nationals Gala - Maria
