    It would not surprise me to find out that the premise of this strip is based on “Hollywood-reality.”

    Meanwhile, while it isn’t a special effect as such, here are the words to the United States’ presidential anthem (The only person in the United States who by tradition has his own fanfare.).

    “Hail to the Chief.”

    “Hail to the Chief we have chosen for the nation,
    Hail to the Chief! We salute him, one and all,
    Hail to the Chief, as we pledge cooperation
    In proud fulfillment of a great, noble call.

    Yours is the aim to make this grand country grander,
    This you will do, that’s our strong, firm belief.
    Hail to the one we selected as commander,
    Hail to the President! Hail to the Chief!”

    The main line, “Hail to the Chief,” Comes from the poem “The Lady of the Lake,” by Sir Walter Scott.
    The tune comes from an English play “Hail to the Chief,” written by James Sanderson.

    Without going into detail, the tune was given new lyrics and has since been used to honour United States presidents since a birthday party for George Washington.

    Bah! Anybody can get an effects man. You aren’t really making it until you have an entourage of flyguys/backup dancers.

    Alexikakos: Hail Columbia is the official fanfare for the Vice-President.

    Hail to the chief who in triumph advances
    Honored and blest be the evergreen pine!
    Long may the tree in his banner that glances
    Flourish, the shelter and grace of our line!

    Heaven send it happy dew, Earth lend it sap anew
    Gaily to bourgeon and broadly to grow,
    While ev’ry highland glen sends our shot back again,
    “Roderich vigh Alpine dhu, ho i e ro!”
