A sneak preview of Ziffel:
Delivered Friday June 19 at 2:30pm via UPS Ground with
the aid of original WISH drummer Vince Broncaccio
(house sitting for the delivery while the band was in
Toledo, OH), weighing 35 lbs, and measuring
approx. 11ft.6in. long and 7ft 6in. high, Ziffel
(named after the infamous pig on TV's Green Acres,
Arnold Ziffel - played by 4 different pig actors, btw)
was first inflated on Tuesday evening June 21,
witnessed by members of the Wish You Were Here stage crew
(photos below by Cy Sulak).
Ziffel's firstpromotional appearance was at Scene Pavilion
before the Gov't Mule show on June 23.
Ziffel was custom-designed and manufactured by Above &
Beyond Balloons in Irvine,
California, based on specifications from myself and
photos of the original pig used for the
Pink Floyd ANIMALS album cover shoot at Battersea Power
Station in England.
WISH YOU WERE HERE is now the ONLY Pink Floyd Tribute
Band in the WORLD
to be utilizing a giant inflatable pig, similar in design
to the original pig!
