‘Sunrise’ To Board The Ratings Red-Eye, Hit Up 5 Countries In 5 Days

In late 2012, a group of 150 media and fans found themselves corralled onto Rihanna‘s now infamous #777Tour – otherwise known as the Oh Na Na Hell Flight – the aim of which was to hit up seven countries in seven days.
It ended in anger, despair, and mutiny; journalists were furious about their lack of facetime with a “drunk”, “lip-syncing” and “lethargic” Rihanna, the generally piss-poor bathroom situation on her various tour buses, and pretty much everything else.
(ICYMI, Gawker did a highly entertaining wrap-up at the time).
Seven‘s very own Sunrise will now attempting a similar feat, broadcasting from five countries in five days, with shows coming from Dubai, London, New York, the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, and finally, Cancun, in Mexico

For Kochie and the gang to spread their viscous seed around the world, it’s going to take approximately 39,686km of travel, and seven flights, spread out over 48 hours and 22 minutes, meaning they’ll be spending more than two fifths of the trip in the air.
Guests on this ratings-grabbing mission will include Ed Sheeran, Hugh Jackman, Philbert Motherfucking Collins and Adam Lambert. Executive producer Michael Pell added:
“Broadcasting three hours live from five countries in five days represents our biggest logistical challenge yet. If we can pull it off, it will make history and provide a spectacular week of viewing.”
Kochie himself has promised a Kim K-like level of behind-the-scenes realness:

“Every day next week we’ll show you what’s really going on behind the scenes, Kardashian style … you will see how we get to each place and what it takes to broadcast three hours of live television from five countries in five days. All the raw, uncut video.”

TBH, we are already prepping a ‘Sam Armytage Snaps And Garottes Kochie With A Microphone Cable’ as a precaution, while we sit back and see how this all plays out.
