Artist Richard Wilson wanted to celebrate 2012's Cultural Olympiad with something different - and thanks to the kind support of fellow Italian Job enthusiast Eddie Izzard, Mr. Wilson has managed just that with a delicately balanced bus teetering off the side of the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, East Sussex.
Speaking about the installation, stand-up comedian and bus-based philanthropist Izzard noted: "By the end of 2012 I would hope the word goes out from our country that not only do we run excellent world events, but we also balance coaches on the edges of buildings like no one else ever could."
Recreating the final moments of the 1969 comedy classic, the appropriately titled Hang on a minute lads, I've got a great idea… will be held in place by a dozen steel girders until October this year.
But why The Italian Job? What gave him the idea? Wilson explains that it's in part to do with patriotism: "It is a red, white and blue coach, it's a Union Jack. Let's not have a flag, let's have a coach fluttering – or teetering."
And just in case you don't get that the first time around, there's even a flag flapping in the wind right beside it. Lovely stuff.
The only thing that could make this even more wonderful would be for it all to be dismanted by - you guessed it - blowing the bloody doors off. Fingers crossed, eh?
