The Phil Collins Parade Is Not A Joke: But It Could Be
PHIL Collins is being celebrated in a parade through New York. Is it a joke? To even think Collins could be the target of a joke is, admittedly, odd, given that the musician is one of the UK’s top pop stars. But Collins is naff, isn’t he? He’s had his day.
The parade is not a celebration of the man’s work but a chance for those involved to look different and cool.
Revelers carried signs with Collins lyrics and swarmed around a parade float — a six-foot-tall paper mache bust of Collins’s head affixed to a Nissan — while a Collins impersonator atop another car took requests.
