Mr Green is back in front of the camera in his all new, all action, TV ad which hit Irish screens this week.
But what really goes on behind the camera? Did Mr Green really ask for a constant supply of M&M’s (just the green ones of course)?
Being the perfect Gentleman Mr Green was of course thoroughly professional and focused on just one thing throughout – having as much fun as possible in the Casino Playground.
From chandelier swinging to teeing off with a 5 iron atop of a Grand Piano – there were plenty of fun and “don’t try this at home” moments befitting a man with such a keen sense of fun and adventure.
Some performers though, before they will even consider getting out of bed, will want all sorts of weird and wonderful demands met…and there’s some belters. Here’s our Top 7
7. At #7 is Motley Crue’s request that IN their dressing room be a 12-foot long boa constrictor…and a jar of mustard. Whether the mustard was for the band or the boa is not entirely clear though!
6. Gummy Bear Jelly’s are not something you would naturally associate with Marilyn Manson but apparently they were a must, and they had to be of the Haribo brand variety or there would be Trouble with a capital T!
5. Cher apparently always wanted her own dressing room. Nothing strange there I hear you say. But a separate dressing room for her wigs…..come on!
4. Madonna is a stickler for hygiene so always demanded a new toilet seat be installed in her dressing room before she arrived. Fair enough!
3. Prince could be quite precious about people touching his stuff. So he would insist that all items in his dressing room be covered in clear plastic before he arrived. So what happened to the last promoter who forgot to do this? Lets just say he now goes by the name…”The Promoter formerly known as….”.
2. Iggy Pop’s list of demands ran to 18 pages and covered everything from a copy of USA Today that features a story about obese people to a Bob Hope impersonator! Enough said.
1. The infamous “no brown M&M’s” request (originally from Van Halen) may on the face of it sound rather pretentious but the official story makes a lot more sense. The way the band saw it, if there were brown M&M’s in the dressing room, it was an indication that the promoter didn’t read their list of requests thoroughly. So if they forgot the M&M’s heaven knows what they did about the sound check request. Very clever guys! (Bowler) hats off to you.
What would be top of your list of demands? Let us know (and keep it clean!)
