“The crowd looks like a herd of penguins huddled together,” he says. “It’s almost like a private party with the dude who ran for the president of Haiti.”
The part where he played an anti-marijuana concert and got paid a lot for it, accomplishing not all that much towards discouraging college kids from smoking the pot on Hitler’s birthday and all the days, and the school just saying “oh well” (because as everyone knows universities can have some pretty hefty entertainment budgets – just that they’re not usually used to fund anti-pot concerts by well-known pot smokers). (Plus lame). From the Colorado Daily:
The Wyclef Jean concert that University of Colorado student organizers spent about $150,000 to put on Friday as counterprogramming to the traditional 4/20 pot smoke-out on the Boulder campus drew just a few hundred students to the mostly-empty Coors Events Center.
“We were in there, but it was lame… I’ve been disappointed in the whole day.”
“They told me I’m not supposed to talk about marijuana,” Jean said. “But I’m about one thing—freedom of speech.”
Jean continued discussing marijuana and 4/20 throughout the show… CU Student Government Vice President Carly Robinson said the university does not plan to go after Jean for breaking the terms of his contract.
And the coup de grâce: fish guts. From The Huffington Post:
The concert was only one component of an effort to halt the smokeout that also included closing the campus to visitors, posting security around the quad, and spreading foul-smelling fish fertilizer on the grass there.
