Now that’s what I call multitasking

Antony Costa at the cash point

In the annals of boy band related news stories, it seems unlikely that anything will ever top the truly awe inspiring incident where East 17’s Brian Harvey ran over himself with his own car, blamed it on baked potatoes and found God.

But coming in at an admittedly distant second comes last week’s Mirror story featuring Blue’s Antony Costa pissing while using a cash point in Trafalgar Square in the early hours. I don’t know what is more impressive, the fact that Costa is able to text, take out cash and pee all at the same time, or that the Mirror is able to stretch to 31 paragraphs an incident which can be summed up in a sentence. While Costa’s painting the wall is not exactly classy I think they may be stretching the outrage somewhat by pointing out the cash point’s proximity to Charing Cross Police Station (gasp!) and approaching a spokesman for Scotland Yard and a Japanese person for comment. Concluding that the offence is liable for a fine up to £100 you can’t help but picture Costa heading to an ATM to withdraw it accompanied by a comedy fly unzipping sound.

In the words of Blue’s no1 hit with Elton John “Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word”, but this doesn’t seem to be the case for Costa who has, to his credit, now apologised for embarrassing his mum. Although Blue have yet to unveil their song for Eurovision their description of it as “anthemic blues” does suggest that Eurovision shame will be raining down on the UK again like…do I have to continue?
