Chaos at champagne shower party after guests sprayed with wrong vintage

DUBAI: There were ugly scenes at a Dubai beach club last night after issues arose regarding the vintage of the products being sprayed in a champagne shower.

Chaos erupted around 8pm at the VVVVIP Platinum Champagne Shower Pool Party held at the XXL Resort when several guests noticed that they were being sprayed with Dom Perignon Magnum Vintage 2002 while others were being showered with the marginally more expensive Dom Perignon Magnum Vintage 2000.

“It was just revolting, a real kick in the face,” said Fadi Flat-White, a Lebanese marketing manager. “When we discovered that we were being showered with a less exclusive vintage while others were soaked in more expensive and desirable champagne, we were quite naturally very upset.”

Eyewitnesses claimed that there had initially been strong language and shouting aimed at the waiting staff, before several guests reportedly tried to take the more expensive champagne by force.

“It was just carnage. People were being pushed in the pool clutching the bottles,” said one.

Eventually, party organisers managed to calm the situation by agreeing to add an extra V to the VVVVVIP in the name and using bigger fireworks with each drink order.

      It’s a satirical story, not real.

      Go home, acknun, your drunk. Oh and by the way, wishing that someone be showered with acid is totally not acceptable, however stupid or excessive you may think that person is.

      • Peace&Love June 18, 2013 at 10:44 pm

        You are probably one of those who would have argued for 2000 instead of 2002 champaign spray.
        So, not acknun, but you should go home (you drunk) and probably find out that just around the corner of your house, wherever in the world you live, there is people starving, dying alone, thirsty and homeless.
        Wake up, champaign is not the subject of this discussion…
        Wake up.

          Wake up, “champaign” is spelled champagne – it’s written right there on the title. And actually yes acknun should go home, and he should take you with him. This article is a piece of satire so stop treating it like it’s a genuine piece of journalism because you’re just making yourself look stupid.

      • Zed July 17, 2013 at 8:36 am

        I agree, thats too harsh cuz those people are stupid. That is IF this story is real. But I think they should have been showered with un-recycled shit, just as a wakeup call :)

    • muttley June 19, 2013 at 5:30 am

      This is a serious discussion guys, please respect acknun’s viewpoint. BTW. if anyone fancy’s a get-together I have a nice bottle of 1997 Parteck white I’m happy to share.

    Always amazed by some comments that seem to completely miss the point of these stories: satire, irony, taking the mickey, just for a giggle!! There is always an grain of truth behind these stories and this is what makes them very astute. To all those that always miss the boat: lighten up :)

    Shhh, HappyDog271. It’s much more entertaining to let the gullible fume away.

    2 right i would of done the same…. 2002 instead of 2000 i’d b fuming!!!!!! hopefully someone got sacked!!!!!

  8. Real VIP HaHa June 18, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    The real story is even more lame. Advertised as Champagne Showers for the Rich Listers. It’s the cheapest sparkling white wine you can get and not even Champagne. The occasional few splash out on a few bottles of the real stuff but that doesn’t get sprayed. So Tacky and Tasteless.

  9. Sally Barnes June 18, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    Not everyone in Dubai are like this, I do however think there are quite alot of idiots, who think they are extremely wealthy, yet only working class. These people give majority of us a bad name. People forget where they come from, just kippers and curtains or furcoat no knickers.

    • Merlin June 19, 2013 at 3:01 pm

      What about fur knickers?

      Works for me!

      • Wears the fox hat June 18, 2014 at 11:27 am

        Better than kipper knickers in my opinion

    I went to one of these Champagne showers last year and someone used a soft drink, needless to say there was a punch-up. I’m disgusted that after paying around $500 for what I expect to be a decent vintage, I get Tizer and BucksFizz.
    I had to get my maid to wash me down afterwards as I was sticking to everything I touched!
    I was treated better when I was a coal miner!

  11. Merlin June 19, 2013 at 5:38 am

    Just as well I gave it a miss then!

    Dom Perignon is a little down-market for my tastes, it simply must be Pernod-Ricard Perrier-Jouet. A snip at $50K a pair!

    Those objecting to displays of obscene decadence simply don’t get it. Jealousy is such an ugly trait!

    Must go and feed my new pet Pink Fruit Bat – Bye!

    • Flumpet June 19, 2013 at 7:03 am

      You went for the Pink Fruit Bat? How is he working out, do you get to ride him to work and does he show up on the Safa Park Salik, seeing as he isnt actually using the track per se?

      • Merlin June 19, 2013 at 9:52 am

        The Pink one indeed Flumpet. I was torn between the Pink or the Norwegian Blue. My mate’s got a Pink Ferrari and a Pink Bentley, but I got the Pink Fruit Bat, just to p*ss him off.

        The pet souk told me that they’re pink on account of them wading around in lakes and living off a diet of shellfish.

        I can’t ride him to work because the bugger kept hanging upside down, which is dead weird, so I turned him back up and nailed his feet to the perch!

        And he still won’t eat the prawns, i bought him!

        • Chris de Burj June 20, 2013 at 11:31 am

          Does this fruit bat have very long legs by any chance ?

          • Merlin June 21, 2013 at 5:45 pm

            Long legs? Aaaaah, you like to think I’m stupid gullible idiot??

            NO! It is a Pink Fruit Bat, not a bloody FLAMENCO!!!

    • Merlin June 21, 2013 at 6:19 pm

      This is too much OFF TOPIC!

      Did you ever see a ‘ship in a bottle’? well now there is a Pink-ish Fruit Bat in a bottle – of Dom Perignon – a challenge I promise you!

      I will take bids starting at QR10,000

      Then, I will go buy Norwegian Blue Fruit Bat!

      • Flumpet June 24, 2013 at 5:50 am

        A flameco??? Your fruit bat also dances, awesome.

        • Chris de Burj June 24, 2013 at 8:21 am


          Stay away from the Norwegian is my advice – they’re blue because they only eat Viagra. Costs a fortune.

    A golden shower is much better, healthier, tastier and cheaper!

  14. Chrystal Chipotle June 19, 2013 at 6:50 am

    I was there, I saw it all. Why should the select few get sprayed with the best champagne whilst we have to make do with the inferior 2,500 dhs a bottle stuff. It is an outrage and I’m writing to my MP immediately. Does this mean you think I am just a VVVVIP, if so that is a blatant lie. My mother always told me I’m a princess so that automatically means I am a VVVVVIP with knobs on. I’m never going to XXL again. I will take my cash and see through bikini to XXXXXL for their ultra expensive, you don’t get in unless you spend $100,000 on a table for the night, club. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya! Losers.

    Pace&Love (joke) more like War&Peace I think. With that kind of savage attack on poor Chrystal! I sort of think you got the wrong angle here (are you Australian)? Mind you, you are right on one thing – Chrystal is a drunkard.

    I cannot believe that people are arguing over a Champagne pool party while the rest of the world is getting raped. I do not understand how people can put so much effort in actually reading an article like this rather than further enhancing your intellectual needs. This is ridiculous. Then you wonder why humanity is deteriorating. What a shame. To the people that are partying. Good for you. We need to let go and have fun from time to time. To the people that are partying and are upset about the fact that you got sprayed by a 2 year different kind of champagne, honestly, really? You think about that for a second and give me a good argument on why and how does it matter. And last but not least, to people that where not even in the party and are just anger typing for the sake of typing, find a hobby.

  19. Claire June 20, 2013 at 8:14 am

    I don’t think it was Dom Perignon Magnum Vintage 2000, tasted more like Blue Nun that had been through a Soda Stream.

    If you are going to have a Champagne Shower, make sure it is at least a classy ‘poo like Asti Spumante from Christmas 1998.

    What’s the problem? I think this situation was dealt with well, the organisers understood their clients and compensated them in the right way. Anyone who has a problem with that needs to start understanding modern world problems a little better, especially if they are to entertain

  24. Matthew Cranwell July 5, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Showering a vintage champagne that has taken someone years and effort to produce for a true connoisseur to drink, is so uncouth. I’d understand being upset if you were going to drink the bloody thing. Peasants.
