Fans of Don Pasquale, Nescafe and the Bellagio: Rejoice!
Boy do we have a spot for you. Nescafe's "More Beans, More Taste" features "over one tonne of beans," shooting into the air a la the Bellagio Fountains, to the tune of "Che interminabile audirivieni" from comic opera Don Pasquale.
The weird thing is, for something with all that going on, it just kinda falls flat. Maybe it's because watching dancing water isn't that fun in the first place, and is really only marginally so in person. Or maybe it's because it's Nescafe.
We can't say for sure. But if for some odd reason you want to see this as it was meant to be seen, tune in to BBC Channel 5, 4 and ITV after 5:45 pm tonight. Bring a mug and some sugar. Oh, and be sure to be somewhere in the UK.
CD: Steve Clark, who -- among other things -- is "still in great demand for his puppeteering skills."
