Happy 4/20, Here's Celine Dion Blowing Through a Concert in Less than Four Minutes

Illustration for article titled Happy 4/20, Heres Celine Dion Blowing Through a Concert in Less than Four Minutes

Wanna feel high?

Watch the clip below of a manic one-woman rehearsal backstage during Celine Dion’s 2008-9 Taking Chances world tour. This footage, from the three-hour documentary Celine: Through the Eyes of the World, has it all: Celine singing and speaking gibberish, Celine imitating a horse, Celine becoming disappointed when she learns child back-up dancers will not be accompanying her onstage, a virtuosic knowledge of her entire show’s blocking without needing to set a foot on stage, boundless energy, scat singing, perfect pitch. There is so much footage online that is evidence of Dion’s singular brand of goofy genius, but if you could only choose one clip to show just what makes her so special, this would absolutely get the job done and then some.

Some Pig. Terrific. Radiant. Humble.

On behalf of the folks here who (a) are already high, and (b) are only familiar with Celine Dion through magazine articles and funny impressions on SNL, I think this is very funny. :) I was actually hoping for a little more bitchiness but she’s very friendly, and her professionalism is insane.

Portland is having a city-wide joint bong rip-fest on Zoom from 4:00 until 4:20 today, plus an online stoner cupcake class and of course the SPLIFF Film Fest. Any other cities having at-home activities? (WA and CA, I’m looking at you...)
