BEST OF THE BEST WEEK EVER: Oh, Did You Hear? We Went on a Cruise with John Mayer… Yes, That One!

MAYER SUIT2.jpgIt’s strange: For such a slow news week, there seemed to be a lot of activity around the BWE.tv offices. For example, were you aware that we (along with VH1.com) went on a cruise with John Mayer? Or, you were? Well, let’s re-link to all the posts anyway, for old times sake!

But believe it or not, other non-Mayer related activities occurred on this very website. A sampling of the best:

Make sure to catch Best Week Ever tonight at 9 PM, 11 PM and all weekend long!!

Best Week Ever Conquers The John Mayer Cruise: Brian and Mimi’s Bucket List

Yes, we know: You’re probably feeling a little burned out from all the John Mayer coverage this week. Here’s the good news: We’ve saved what we think is the best for last! Brian Faas and myself created a “Bucket List” of sorts while on the cruise, listing all the things we wanted to accomplish before returning to the Port of Miami.

Will Brian successfully recreate the scenes from Titanic? Will he also make me sort of uncomfortable by splaying himself on a peach leather couch? Will I get the chance to make an announcement on the cruise’s loudspeaker? And will Brian get the “John Workout” from Mayer’s real-life personal trainer? The video answers all those questions… and more.

So really, if you’ve got a few spare minutes, check it out. We worked really hard on it, and are proud of the results. (/sincerity)

Note: The video is under 3 minutes, and not 7, like iFilm states. Technology!

Make sure to head over to VH1.com, for more info on all the musicians on board, as well as video and photos of the performances!

BONUS:

After the jump, some fun DVD EASTER EGGS!

EXCLUSIVE! John Mayer Speaks: On James Blunt, Culottes… and Murder

For those out of the loop, pop megastar John Mayer chartered a Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas for himself and 3,000 of his biggest fans. And we here at Best Week Ever were the only people allowed on board with video cameras! Mayer, who I am now personally in love with, took time out of his busy balls-in-the-wind schedule to get within 30 feet of me for an exclusive on board interview.

He covers everything from his upcoming album, to cruise ships, to competing with James Blunt… even taking a moment to cover Britney Spears‘ “Piece of Me.” And oh yeah… we hug.

So check out my exclusive Mayercraft Carrier interview with John Mayer!

FYI: While I normally have what could be described as a “sultry” voice, a case of on-board laryngitis caused me to sound like the ghost of Paul Robeson in the above video. As of my last physical, I’m testicle-free! The fact that I didn’t show up in a gown and prom updo… well for that, I have no excuse.

EXCLUSIVE! Brian Faas Crashes a Colbie Caillat Concert

Our on board antics continue! In this installment of “Things We Did On The John Mayer Cruise”, BWE‘s Brian Faas crashes a Colbie Caillat concert smack in the middle of it, demanding to hear her hit tune “Bubbly.” Colbie was nothing short of a delight and a dream, and even dedicated some songs to our starstruck Brian! Grab your nearest shamp-flute and take a gand!

LIVEBLOGGING THE MAYERCRAFT: Does Sherrod Small Really Masturbate To John Mayer?

This weekend’s John Mayer Ship Parade wasn’t all about singer-songwriters removing their shirts on international waters. There was stand-up comedy on board as well! Mayer’s close and personal bestie and Best Week Ever panelist Sherrod Small took the stage to a sold-out house, and our very own Brian Faas was there to… um, laugh.

Stay Tuned For More Mayercrafty Goodness!

Just an FYI: Beginning tomorrow and continuing for the rest of the week, Best Week Ever will be bringing you our video footage from The Mayercraft Carrier (i.e. The John Mayer Cruise), including special moments with John Mayer, Colbie Caillat, and various other hilarities taken directly from the most fun work assignment I’ve ever received, and definitely the most sun-burniest.

And speaking of Special Moments with John Mayer…

JOHN MAYERS BACK.jpg

I’m not gonna lie or take the high road on this… I’m kind of a changed woman.

Also, remind me to tell you about that time I met John Mayer on a cruise ship while simultaneously forgetting to “do” my “hair” because I was too busy “blogging.” Or about that time I had a senile blind dead woman pack my luggage to go on said cruise. White blazer, Collins? Really?

Harpingly,

LIVEBLOGGING THE MAYERCRAFT: The Cruise… She Ends.

Here’s something I never knew about cruises: They like to fill you up with strange and exotic hot pink lih-koors the night before it ends. They also encourage you to “get crazy” and “eat pizza” at “all times of the night”, and “stay up late” and “be young again.” But then they also do this weird thing the next morning called “making a 6 AM announcement” telling you to “pack” and “leave”… “immediately.” Point being: It’s early and I just don’t feel that great.

So instead of doing a long recap post about our last night on board, I’ve got to go shove the handful of rags I brought on board into a bindle and hit the road. But for those of you wondering how the cruise was overall… well, I’m pretty sure this picture sums it up nicely:

It was pretty good.

LIVEBLOGGING THE MAYERCRAFT: John Mayer Does the 80′s Prom!!

JOHN AND SHERROD.jpg(Note: This post will be much more enjoyable if read while wearing your favorite 1989 Meshach Taylor/Summer School sunglasses.)

The Mayercraft Carrier so far is going swimmingly… not literally, of course, as in that case we would be sinking. On Saturday, the boat docked in the Bahamas, and the BWE crew took a break from the slowest internet connection on the planet to head over to a pretty spectacular beach in order to work on our sunglasses tan. On the way over to the beach, we shared a van with two soccer-mommish ladies from Lincoln, Nebraska, who were in better moods than we had ever been in our entire lives. The conversation began innocently enough — talk of locations, cruise food, etc. — but quickly devolved into the most base of exchanges: What Does John Mayer‘s Ass Look Like? The gals from Nebraska quickly intimated that his ass is probably kind of flat, while I personally took the high road, instead discussing what Jon Bon Jovi’s ass looks like (two baby apples in a pleather sack, for the record.) Nebraska Mom #1 settled the argument by saying “Who cares what his ass looks like? It’s what those lips can do that I care about!” and then shrieked with laughter for the remainder of the trip, while the rest of the van learned the definition of “collective shudder.”

4 hours of beach time tucked firmly under our sunburns — and 15 minutes of myself and Brian Faas realizing that “Ocean Trampoline” is actually code for “Quick and Bloodless Death” — we realized we had to get back to the ship in order to prepare for our most anticipated event of the weekend… THE 80s PROM!

When I first learned that there was to be an 80s Prom on board the Mayercraft, I immediately broke down sobbing, got into a fight with my best friend, ate 300 hors dourves off the nearest table, and promptly lost my virginity to the captain of the lacrosse team… THAT is how excited I was! And folks, the people on board did NOT let me down — folks broke out their most convincing, mind-boggling puff-sleeved dresses and tuxedos in order to remember just how unflattering that decade was. Check out this group of people eating dinner next to us:

It was the Bat Mitzvah I never had, but always dreamed of!

LIVEBLOGGING THE MAYERCRAFT: Best Door Ever

As Best Week Ever is one of the sponsors of The Mayercraft Carrier, many of the events on board have had the catchy theme of naming something the Best Blank Ever – for example, the Best Cruise Ever, or the Best Mystery Protein Doused In Suspicious Looking Gravy Ever. One such promotion was having “The Best Door Ever”, where folks on board were challenged to prove to cruise directors why they were having The Best Week Ever. And apparently cruisegoers take contests and such super-seriously, as some of these doors went above and beyond our wildest door decorating expectations. Judging by these doors, we’re guessing there are probably around 4 dozen college R.A.’s on board. Below, some of our favorite entrants, along with light commentary!!

BEST DOOR EVER2.jpgBy far the most ambitious door we came across. These people basically likened John Mayer’s head to the size of the cruise ship, which is humanly impossible. But to these people — Mayer the man is humanly impossible. (Whatever that means.) We would also like to applaud these people for a. Bringing a poster of a cruiseship on board to win a door contest; and b. getting the signature Best Week Ever font as close to perfect as possible (without having to pay our extremely unforgiving licensing fees.)

BEST DOOR EVER 3.jpg
And our awaaaaaard for the most frightening door to come back to after 7 double apple martinis goes toooooo…. these people! Look, most of us wouldn’t be too upset to find John waiting back in their cabins after a long day of sunning and drinking, but I don’t know how psyched I’d be to find him mysteriously peeking out from behind my door doing his best Sweeney Todd impersonation. What are you hiding John? What. Are. You. Hiding.

And the winner for Best Door Ever (in our books goes to)…

BEST WEE EVER.jpg
The Best Wee Ever Door! The only thing missing is a little yellow stream of sunshine trickling down onto all the letters. Still, good effort!
