This Week: An Absolutely Fabulous wine tasting, Sir Sean loves his whisky and no grape suprises when it came to one man's lawsuit

Published:  18 January, 2007

Lots to talk about this week in Harpers' YouTube and quirkies round-up

We like to keep Best of the Web as current as possible but due to the plethora of classic grainy footage we found this week, we hope you forgive a spot of nostalgia.

First off is this Absolutely Fabulous clip of Eddie and the legend that is Patsy at a wine tasting. Look out for Joanna Lumley's character at the end as she keels over gracefully.

Next up is the nation's favourite Scotsman, Sir Sean Connery. This video shows him enjoying a glass of Suntory Whiskey although I'm not sure he would be so happy the commercial made its way outside of Japan.

If you ignore the dull beginning and stick with it, this video of a man playing a wine glass harp is actually quite impressive.

What Else? Well there's a funny cheese and wine commercial that has been around on cyberspace for a while plus this great example of why all drinkers should stay within the recommended limits. Ouch.

And finally There was news this week of a man who tried unsuccessfully to sue a well known retail store for 300,000 because he slipped on a grape.
