Maybe it was a fever dream…

But I swear, I swear, that I was filling up with gas last night and looking at the “gas TV” on top of the pump and all of a sudden a hot, bubbly Entertainment Tonight-type host came on and said “Here are two of the founding members of Camper Van Beethoven accompany you while you pump your gas.”

And then the two guys played an abbreviated “Take The Skinheads Bowling.”

I scrambled for my phone to obtain video proof but it ended as quickly and mysteriously as it started. “Drive safe!” said the bubbly hottie and it was over.

Anyone out there able to confirm this observation for me?

I've never seen that, but if it was a hallucination it is an excellent one.

I saw CVB play that song in Austin around 1989...memories...

I'm with Chris, better story if it didn't actually happen. What a great world it would be if all hallucinations were things that made you feel cool. However, if it did happen, the programming guy for the station pump should become a FOT stat!
