Nothing says “fancy event” like a string quartet and a few liters of Champagne cascading down a pyramid of coupe glassware. That is, until the person pouring the Champagne takes their eyes off the prize.

Russian TV host and tech reporter Dmitry Blinnikov posted a video to Twitter on Thursday showing a soon-to-be very embarrassed man attempt to pour two bottles of Champagne into a pyramid of glasses stacked eight tiers high.

Sadly for that guy, things don’t quite go to plan.

Spoiler alert: The Champagne tower, and everyone’s dreams, were shattered.
