Scott & Hanesy, World Record Holders

Last night we were at Trafalgar Square as part of the Guinness Book Of Records' attempt to break the "World's largest Coconut Orchestra" record. the previous record was 1800 odd people in New York. Naturally, the gig was sponsored by the good people of "Spamalot", The Monty Python musical playing up the road. Basically, we registered, were given our nuts (marked "L" and "R", and with instructions). We then rehearsed the clopping a few times, and then the leader of the Spamalot orchestra led us through a full rendition of "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" (whistle bits changed to coconut clanking). We smashed the record, with almost 4400 people taking part. As a reward, we were the treated to an outdoor screening of "Monty Python And The Holy Grail", which I hadn't seen for a good twenty years I reckon.

There's some more photos here.
