Mice Net : October 2008
melbourne that’s just Those who watch free-to-air television and see the occasional advertisement in-between shows may have seen Mr T in all his glory telling an underachiever to “Get Some Nuts!” on a series of ads complete with jewellery, mohawk hair and a Sherman tank. Today’s Mr T doesn’t look much different to what he did when he starred in the classic (now cult) series, The A Team. The wrinkles may be deeper but then if you were old enough to watch the A Team in the 1980s, whose aren’t? More than 200 guests enjoyed a decadent cocktail party for the launch which included a barbecue station and a specially created dessert that included the new Get Some Nuts Snickers chocolate bars prepared by Crown’s executive pastry chef, Tim Clark. “Extreme” cheerleaders ushered Mr T to the stage before Hamish Blake and Andy Lee of radio and Rove fame, celebrated the launch of Get Some Nuts and the accomplishments and achievements of some of the “tough nuts” of Australian sport, including cricket and football stars, past and present. The menu for the soiree included such delicacies as grissini sticks with marinated and stuffed green olives; mini roast pork, asparagus and coriander seared tuna; black olive and walnut frittata with red pepper salsa; tandoori chicken puffs; tomato, smoked paprika and goat’s cheese parcels; mini pizzas with onions, olives and anchovies; chorizo sausage rolls; mini burgers, steaks and hot dogs; and individual caesar, potato, pasta and Greek salads.
