Weekend at Festival of the Forties almost ruined!
A day meant for music and celebration was ruined over the weekend when a group of showgoers made a shocking discovery — one of the presenters Ken Campbell was left in a blistering hot Land Rover with no ventilation.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said Remy Savigar, waiting in line for the doors to open. “He was sitting in the Land Rover shirtless and sweating, just eating Salt and Vinegar crisps. It was, like, 32 degrees outside — who knows how hot it was in that Land Rover? You see news stories all the time about presenters being left in hot vans, but some people still don’t realize the dangers.”
The presenter, Ken Campbell, was left behind by his mates while he slept. “In their defense, I was under a blanket and sleeping on the floor. I’m not allowed on seats anymore,” said Ken, still sweating profusely when asked his thoughts. “It’s not like they keep me locked in the Land Rover all the time. Just when we’re driving or they’re running into the store real quick.”
A fellow Sapper swears it was an accident. “We are responsible mates. We would never leave Ken in the Land Rover like that on purpose,” he said. “We usually give him a couple bottles of beer and crack the windows a bit; maybe find a shady spot to park — that way he’s comfortable and can interact with people walking by, he loves to lick the windows. People love him and so do we. He’s our special little guy.”
After 20 minutes of searching the venue for the Land Rover’s owners, Remy and a few onlookers decided to take action. “We knew we had to act fast,” he said. “We tried to talk to him, but he seemed disoriented and would not stop looking at his phone. When we realized he couldn’t figure out how unlock the doors we had no choice but to find a rock and break the window.”
When asked if he would do it again, Remy replied “Absolutely. All presenters deserve the same treatment as us.”
