Apparently the orchestra doesn't like Seth MacFarlance's style of humor. During the acceptance speech of one of Life of Pi's early wins, the maestro turned his pit of instrumentalists into a pit of vipers with instruments.
They drowned out everything. For four hours.
"I just don't like the way Seth claps. His hands look like overcooked pasta commiting acts of terror. And he jokes too much about boobs," said the maestro during a commercial break.
"My wife has boobs. That's disrespectful," he added.
When MacFarlane tried to take the stage and settle things down, a tuba nearly struck him in the head. Fortunately, he dodged the tuba with a nifty dance move and asked, "Hey! Who just threw that tuba?"
