Chika Bom Bom Cha Bom Bom: Revisiting the Cosmo Video

Cosmo Video Grab

I don't know about you, but it's been eight months and I still can't get the "chika bom bom cha bom bom cha kay" from that short-lived Cosmopolitan preview video out of my head. And considering that we're now officially eight days away from actually seeing what the actual place looks like and kind of sort of know what we're looking at, we here at VT felt it might be fun, nostalgic, and supremely vindicating to take another look at that video. So, for a limited time only here you go.

Based on various renderings and leaked photos we've seen in the past few weeks, we can now say that it was all there from the very beginning. The lobby video columns? Front and center. Chandelier? There you go. Casino cabanas? They're filled with video poker machines instead of tables, but they're still there. Vesper? Mhm. Bond? Can someone say dancing cube? In fact, the only things that look to have changed between the creation of that video and the opening of the resort are the room offerings and the removal of a poker room, and those were probably for the better. No wonder that thing was taken offline within hours of our posting a link to it.

Now, we hate to gloat, but for anyone out there who thought this might have been a holdover from the Eicher-era Cosmo, suck it, monkeys; we were right all along. And to be honest, we're still just as excited about getting our feetsies in the door as we were back in April. Asi me gusta mi, to the nth degree.

If you didn't know, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opens its doors at 8:00 p.m. in 8 days. If you haven't already done so, start getting excited.

I like it. The casino reminds me of Encore (the red chandeliers) blended with Aria. Overall, bright and airy. Can't wait to see it for myself!

What really sux is I am going to miss the opening by 1 day. Sam as last year I missed teh opening of Aria by a couple of days. But I can't wait to see if the Death Ray in City Center is all it's talked about.

Love that vid!
