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.
