The Euro leg of the global Mr. Plant Tour is a wrap and what a blast It was… We may be sad to part ways with the flora & fauna of the Mr. Plant entourage but our livers and bio clocks are thanking us.
6 EU premiere stops over the course of 9 days turned out to be 7 in the end. After countless beers, happy faces, planes, trains, automobiles, and more than 2000km spent in a tiny-foul-smelling Ford Focus, I'm having a hard time finding words that can express all the fun shared with friends new & old. All I will say is that Mr. Plant is one helluva movie you cannot allow yourself to miss. Superlatives like "Best since The Garden" are ticking in from the remotest corners of the world. And the man behind the Plant, Pat Moore himself, is as real as they come. Pat has an uncanny ability of focusing 100% on one thing at a time. Be it snowboarding or shaking a fans hand, looking him in the eyes and paying attention, the perpetually friendly Mr. Plant always delivers. He is as unique a human being as he is a snowboarder and his sidekick and movie Director Jake Price is a mighty fine fella as well
But hey, don't take our word for it. Stop by one of the 20+ remaining global Mr. Plant premiere stops, go up to Pat & Jake and say hi and find out for yourself. Otherwise contain your enthusiasm until November 5th as that is the date when Mr. Plant drops on Itunes.
To all of you that hosted us or came to the premieres- we thank you very much and look forward to seeing you in the snow.

Kids, don't try this at home.. 9 days of boozing and no sleep will make you pregnantIf you get pulled over for speeding by the police in the US, DO NOT exit your car, you could get shot. In France however, feel free to get out, walk around and bro down.. Thanks to a bribe from our "soon -to–quit" ciggying Olympian Arthur Longo, who offered up his last stick, our fine was even lowered.
