Dear Michael Bublé,
“Going on tour is like a summer camp.”
That’s what you told CBS’ Lara Logan during a 60 Minutes segment on your unique career singing classic jazz standards. Then the camera cut to footage of the two of you playing ping-pong and whirling around backstage on a Segway before a concert in San Jose, Calif.
You also said in the interview that people judge you before they really get to know you. Personally, I didn’t know a thing about you before 60 Minutes, well, except for the fact I fell in love with one of your songs a few years ago.
I first heard your version of “Feeling Good” on the show, So You Think You Can Dance, and immediately downloaded it on iTunes. To borrow a radio term, it’s been in heavy rotation on my personal playlists ever since. It’s probably one of the best songs I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing.
After seeing you on your Segway, I think I know something else that will have you feeling good: a new addition to your collection of fun toys for the road. It’s called a Trikke Tribred Pon-e, a three-wheel, electric carving vehicle that’s great fun, great exercise, and in my humble opinion, tons more fun than a Segway.
The Segway controls the rider. However, the rider controls the Trikke. It’s far more agile, athletic and akin to something James Bond would use to get around. It’s also something that will have kids from 9 to 99 saying, “whoa, cool!”
Best of all, when you’re riding over those mounds of cables snaking around arena floors, you’ll have a lot more mobility going over bumps, not to mention all the swerving and racing you can do in between the floor seats.
So try a Trikke, Mr. Bublé. It will triple your fun at summer camp and have you feeling, oh, so good.
