James Cameron's 3D enviro epic inspires a creep to open a nightclub.
Cultivating Earth's most ridiculous haircut wasn't enough for MIke Basson. The South African entrepeuneur has looked at the cultural tea leaves and decided that what the Cape Town nightclub scene really needs is a douche-haven nightclub themed after James Cameron's Avatar. Called Avastar, which I assume Basson believes avoids copyright infringement. And it's a progressive place, where the house rule is that women are in charge and all male suitors must approach them with a club specialty cocktail in hand. Equality!
This place looks horrible, even in terms of horrible nightclubs. I mean, I would be predisposed to dislike any nightclub because they're almost always the worst places on Earth, filled with the worst people on Earth, but this one looks doubly terrible because all of its 'advanced features' feel twenty years out of date.
I've always said that Avatar was weirdly absent from pop culture; for a movie that made so much money you would think it would have left a bigger mark in terms of language, characters or references. Mike Basson is dedicated to proving that wrong.
