Red, Red Rhine

To celebrate the Bambis (yes, named after THAT Bambi), the German pop culture awards, the Dorf hired out ludicrously large lasers to turn the Rhine river into the world's largest red carpet. Unfortunately, the first night was kiboshed due to an incredibly rare atmospheric disturbance -- the air was too dry. But tonight, it was on (like Donkey Kong).

I'm not sure what the random water jet was, but it was Dorf-tastic!

To be honest, it kind of looks like a lot of the crappy "special" effects from the old "Doctor Who" show on the BBC -- and that generally had a budget of $20-$30 per show.

The rain drop helps the mood a bit, I think. At least you get the redness. Still, it's a pretty crap-tacular red carpet.

You know it's a good day when you can get a UB40 reference out there.
