People: Jul. 6, 1998


Tommy Hilfiger just got a blimp. We went up with him immediately.

Q: Doesn't a blimp seem kind of '70s?

A: That's what I like about it. It's classic. I also love the equipment that goes with it: all those trucks, buses, people in uniform.

Q: We're going to die, aren't we?

A: I don't think you have to worry about it. For some reason, I trust the pilots.

Q: Even though they're drinking?

A: They haven't started yet. The champagne isn't open yet.

Q: Would you ever use your blimp for evil?

A: Never.
