Punks in the Park
TV Cameras, Celebrities and playing the piano with toes
Oz Clark and James May are currently filming a new BBC show (Big Beer Adventure), they previously did a show with a similar format for wine, see
So when they asked Martin and myself if we wanted to be involved in the beer series we were happy to oblige. As the picture suggests the BrewDog beer tasting took place on a park bench in sunny princess street gardens (Edinburgh). For added authenticity the beers were served in brown paper bags and stored in a black holdall. In an unusual twist frozen peas were also used to keep the beers cold as the supermarket ran out of ice.
Me telling Oz Clarke he could play the piano with his toes, seriously they were like fingers.
Convincing Oz and James that Paradox tastes better with your left shoe and sock off and then proceeding the throw the aforementioned shoes into the bushes.
James May getting so enraged about the Portman Group threatening to blacklist out beers that he threw a bottle of Punk IPA which actually hit the camera man.
They really enjoyed our beers and we had a good fun, lively debate with these D-list celebrities, incidentally we think they would both be great on Celebrity Big Brother or the one in the jungle (I am a beer/wine expert get me out of here!)
The resulting chaos is either going to be screened on BBC 2 in October or January - I will let you all know. It will also be available online for those of you outside the UK and a link will also be posted.
