We open to a music video. Horns blare in the background, enshrining this special occasion. Images fly in one by one as the voiceover of Otto Price takes hold on your psyche.

Price: IT’S CLASSICMANIA! AND IT STARTS RIGHT NOW!
The montage ends and we’re treated to 17,000 screaming fans inside the arena. The camera fades into our commentary team of Patrick Moss and Joel “Thunderbird” Howley.
Moss: Welcome everyone to ClassicMania, I’m Patrick Moss and I’m joined as always by the Thunderbird! How are we doing Joel?
