Every oboist has seen the Superbowl Commercial with the oboe-playing football player. But have you seen Victor Newman talk about his passion for music?? (And am I the only one who watches daytime tv? Not so much these days, but I still watch Young & the Restless on DVR.)
Set-up: Victor has started dating (read: sleeping with) his daughter's friend Sabrina, who is an international (is she supposed to be French?) art expert; Victor has hired her as his art consultant... (The whole thing is pretty creepy, but this scene was HILARIOUS.)
Victor: Art inspires you the way music inspires me. [Blog author's note: Since when?] Do you know Bellini?
Sabrina: (Giggles.) It's so sexy to hear you talk about music. Yes, Bellini. He's a genius. Do you know his oboe concerto?
Victor: In E-flat Major? Yes, beautiful.
Sabrina: And his operas...Norma is my absolute favourite.
Me: (Laughing hysterically.)
