    Took my kids to see the most recent Harry Potter movie and spotted a modified Arco Resonet EUB played by the band in the yule ball scene!

    Any other EUB sightings in the movies? I can recall Danko´s Baby Bass in The Last Waltz, and another Baby Bass in Home Alone (John Candy´s polka band offers little Kevin´s mom a lift).

    Laurie Anderson playing a Clevenger and waving a flourescent/neon bow, in one of her films......can't remember the title, from the 80's I believe....

    Star Trek Nemesis had a neon green one in the background during the wedding. I think. It's been a while. Ever notice how badly the 'musicians' fake it on that show? it's not like it'd cost more to hire someone who actually knew how to hold a bass. I'm not a total nerd, I swear.
  4. I was watching the Olympic Opening Ceremonies last night on TV and saw what I thought to be an NS EUB being played while Peter Gabriel sang John Lennon's "Imagine". There were no close ups, but it looked like and NS to me.
  5. That was "Home of the Brave"
  6. Noticed that too!
    It wasn't Tony Levin though!
