The Count of Cool returns!

Bastards have terminated the video. Ah well, their loss, not mine. (update: oops! they have put it back! yippee!)

This is a vid of the latest Bryan Ferry release. Bryan Ferry is and always has been one of the coolest people on the planet. Years ago when that nutter hijacked the commercial airliner he was on and sent it spiralling to certain death, Ferry was calmly sifting through his Ipod for some Oscar Peterson and sipping a Dry Martini. When it was all over and they were clearing up the urine and sick, Ferry cheered everyone up with an acapella rendition of "Do the Strand", after glancing at his Panerai Luminor 1950 Flyback Regatta and doing up a button on the cuff of his Anderson and Shepperd suit.

This video - a retro take on the Bond title sequence. Fab!

File under: essential cool. cf Weasel passim.

I used to love Bryan Ferry back in the 80's . Well dressed and always hanging out with the nice burds.
I wonder if his composure during the hijack was due to a few drinkies before the flight. I always get tanked up before flying as it scares the hell out of me. I remember my holiday flight last year. 3 attempts at landing. Lots of speeding up and slowing down. Passengers all around me hugging each other and showing signs of acute stress. I was loving it in my vodka fuelled oblivion and was hoping it would get more hairy.
Vodka - the cure for anyone terrified of flying.
