Del Monte Fun at the Tokyo Skytree Tower

Bimbling around the mall below the Tokyo Skytree Tower, we came upon a Del Monte display. On the wall/floor was a frieze to have a laugh with. I know, let’s get Bear to pretend to pick up a tomato, I got ready on the thoughtfully placed photographers footprints. Oh no, this is going to have to get so much better, his feet are all wrong as is his right hand.

On the wall was the history of Del Monte as a brand.

Suddenly it twigged, we had seen adverts in the souvenir shops for Inca Red (Del Monte tomato juice) which at the time seemed a really odd thing to sell in a gift shop. The actual bottles were 1,000 Yen (about six pounds fifty two). So, here we are, in a quiet corner of a huge mall below the tallest tower in the world, in a Del Monte Tomato Juice Museum...........it says so on the free-standing board.............

Back to the posing bit, rethink the outcome, let’s go for the foot on the tomato look. OK, I’ll try. No, no, no, your right foot has to be six inches forward and your left leg has to go higher. It won’t go any higher. What do you mean, it won’t go any higher, try. No, it really won’t, I’m at my physical limit. Heck are you, change legs then. Left foot OK, but right foot has to go six inches higher. Same problem, it won’t go any higher. If anyone had come by at this point and listened to the left a bit, higher, right a bit........ We were now in fits and decided to carry on with the ‘learning bit’.

From vine to shops, a happy story, now back to the posing........

The hands are good, you’ll have to step forward a bit and when you have, look at the camera. I’ll break my neck and all the blood is rushing to my head. Oh suffer for your art. That will be your art then. Desist speaking.

We take in all the advertisements in the display. One final go at the posing.

Perfect hands. That’s it. I need a beer. But what about your feet, you’re still treading on the tomato behind you...... I’ll not type the next words that came out of my beautiful assistants mouth, but the gist of it was, NO.
