WATCH: Bono Serenades Mario Batali, ‘A Ginger, a Redhead’
The only thing that would make this Instagram video better is to see Mario Batali’s reaction to Bono’s heavenly voice. (Just us who forgot that Bono is actually a really good singer? No? Moving on.)
Of course, it’s not just for shits and giggles that Bono sings a little West Side Story ditty about this “redhead, a ginger” Batali. Batali is leading the Bono-approved EAT (RED). DRINK (RED). SAVE LIVES campaign, reports Rolling Stone. The reason Batali is “such a cheap date” is for the charity promotion Batali and the RED () campaign have agreed to to do: a one-on-one private meal made by Batali and a behind-the-scenes tour of Eataly. It costs $10 to enter, so if you win, it would be in fact the cheapest meal you’ll ever have from Batali (or at Eataly).
Batali isn’t the only chef to sign on board the RED () campaign; even Wylie DuFresne, Padma Lakshmi, and Martha Stewart appear in promotional videos. But really, nothing beats Bono’s singing voice, sorry guys.
