The producers of No Time To Die have revealed they used 8,400 gallons of Coca-Cola to make a cobbled street less slippery for a James Bond motorbike stunt.

 

According to stunt boss Lee Morrison, Daniel Craig devised the trick allowing his stunt double rider Paul Edwards to hit a 25ft ramp at 60mph, clear a wall and land on cobbles. The film crew spent £55,000 on the sugary soft drink that, once dried, left a sticky residue on the stones.

 

“I spent nearly €60,000 spraying Coca-Cola around Matera,” Morrison told Total Film this month. “I’ve been spraying Coca-Cola on slippery surfaces for a very long time.”

Ok, and what volume is that exactly? :unsure:

There must be at least 2 or 3 different gallon units...

When will reporters use international standard units that don't have such ambiguity ? :dry:

Liters or m3 would be more meaningful for most people.

 

And BTW, what volume of water to clean all this sugar after the stunt ?

Used with some very fine wire wool, it brings chrome up beautifully.

What is it about James Bond movies? They are totally implausible nonsense with very poor dialogue and lame songs. <deleted>....anyone in an James Boing Film(film, actors directors) ever win any Oscars?

When I was a young lad in the mid 60s I went on a school excursion to the Coke plant  in Adelaide  (au) The guide told us that all the workers  were issued with new work  boots every 6 months . Why is that ??? Because the coke that spilt on the floor corroded the soles of their boots....Thats why I dont drink it !!!
