Johnnie Walker Photo Booth, Bank
There was a time when I would have put my mortgage on the photo booth being obsolete in 2015, banished to the scrapheap alongside the telephone box, TDK cassettes, and . Annoyingly, 10 years later the X Factor is still going strong; but looking on the bright side, despite camera phones virtually bankrupting Polaroid and Kodak, photo booths have enjoyed a revival in recent years.
For those of us mature (read: old) enough to remember a time before digital cameras and selfies, one of the best ways to capture the moment were impromptu stop offs at a photo booth playing a game of human Tetris so that everyone fit into the frame. At the risk of sounding like a fuddy duddy, those were the good old days, and Johnnie Walker are attempting to bring the good times back with their dazzling Johnnie Walker Gold Label photo booth that’s currently touring the nation.
The solid gold [effect] booth has been made to resemble the impressive Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve whisky bottle and has been designed by none other than world famous photographer Rankin. The booth has been touring Europe for the last few months and currently resides in brand new luxury restaurant M in bank, before moving on to Manchester in the new year.
Christmas partygoers are encouraged to use the booth while enjoying a host of Johnnie Walker cocktails, and there is a special prize to be won. The five most liked photos uploads to instagram using #GoldCelebration will be chosen by Rankin himself to take part in a one off advert being filmed in March 2015! Having uploaded a few dodgy snaps ourselves, we may be in for a good shout at the title!
The Johnnie Walker booth will be at M until 2nd January.
