The ad for the Avatar nightclub in South Africa is magical, insane (semi-NSFW)

Were you one of those moviegoers who became unnaturally crestfallen once the credits rolled on Avatar? Don't feel blue, you Na'vi trapped in a human body! One nightlife entrepreneur in Rivonia, South Africa has created a price-conscious facsimile of Pandora on Earth!

Welcome to Avastar, a nightclub that looks exactly like Avatar, if the movie took place on a planet made of Lisa Frank Trapper Keepers and Champale-soaked black velvet paintings. The premises are also decorated with busty doodles of Neytiri — presumably James Cameron commissioned a local seventh-grade art class to capture her heroic splendor. James Cameron was consulted on this, right?

You can watch owner Mike Basson's hypnotic sales pitch above — this man is the South African Tom Carvel. ("Flamethrowers! Every ten minutes, we give you a flamethrower display!") The video is semi-NSFW for pendulous cat people. Also, here's some footage from opening night. David Hasselhoff was there, bringing his auspicious Baywatch Nights flavor to the solemn proceedings. I'm pretty sure this is viral marketing for Avatar 2, which will be set in Reno.

"Avastar is the hottest nightclub in Rivonia. It has everything you want for a good night out: Windex tinted drinks, Navi porn painted all over the walls, Eight lasers, and Sully Specials: Which is when you sit in a wheelchair and let one of the perma-dyed dancers give you a lap dance and jam lanyards of monkey hair into an orifice of your choosing."
