Yeah, sure, why not.

Break out the pyrotechnics, because Donald Trump is reportedly getting theatrical advice for his inauguration from the man who is responsible for giving him his TV break: Mark Burnett, the New York Times reported.

Trump and Burnett spoke at a breakfast fundraiser Wednesday morning where Burnett reportedly told Trump that he should consider arriving at his inauguration in a totally over-the-top way by landing in a helicopter after taking off from New York City.

And the festivities don’t stop there: the “Apprentice” producer reportedly also suggested that Trump hold a parade up Fifth Avenue, which would presumably pass by or end at Trump Tower.

Burnett has spoken out about Trump in the past, but has remained mum about him since the election.
