The Parlotones - Giant Mistake premier

On Wednesday was the launch of Giant Mistake, the Parlotones’ new wine and the film in South Africa. After travelling for 33 hours from Australia with the master copy of the film, I arrived at Cape Town International at the same time the event started. Attending were 200 people consisting of mostly media, wine people, Woolworths executives and the friends and family of the people involved, some of South Africa’s most important wine makers and the prominent media people of the country were attending.

The film started and the attention was fixed to the screen. I concentrated on the quality of the sound and wasn’t really nervous. Everything went perfect and the people loved the 7 min short film. There after the Parlotones played live and unplugged for the guests. The guys gave it all and it was an incredible experience. Together with the band rocking, we drank the Parlotones’ wine – Giant Mistake. It couldn’t have been a better evening. There I stood in one of the most luxurious hotels in Cape Town, signing Giant Mistake Bottles, with media from all over and rocking with the Parlotones after watching our film. For sure a highlight of my career. Go and visit www.theparlotoneswine.com and enjoy the film yourself.
