Last week i was invited to Hamburg in order to be part of a very special event. For the very first time in history Sky 007 HD will air all twenty-three official Bond movies, with the channel launching on October 5th (today)- and what location would be the ultimate option for a little celebration – of course the Hamburg Hotel Atlantic Kempinski. It’s not only the place where the german rock star Udo Lindenberg has been living there for more than 15 years it was also used as a location in the movie „Tomorrow never dies“.
The launch of the new pop-up channel kicked off with a red (or in this case a black) carpet event featuring guest appearances by Germany’s only ‘Bond girl’ Karin Dor (You Only Live Twice), skier Willy Bogner, who served as cameraman and stuntman in a number of Bond films, and German Bond villains Götz Otto (Tomorrow Never Dies), Claude-Oliver Rudolph (The World Is Not Enough), Michael Pink (Skyfall) and Detlef Bothe who will appear in forthcoming movie Spectre.
150 guest were invited to enjoy an evening full of James Bond’s typical moments – like drinking Martinis (shaken, not stirred), playing roulette and smoking cigarres. It was so much fun being 007 for one night and i guess my adventure won’t stop here anyway – but more about that very soon. Big thanks to BESSER for inviting me to the Sky Event, i truly had a blast!
