Jamie Foxx and TI’s new film, Sleep­less, was launched in style world­wide this week, in­clud­ing in South Africa.

A gen­tle­man’s evening at SterKinekor in Sand­ton saw a whole bunch of in­flu­encers rock up dressed like James Bond. To­gether, these broth­ers were schooled in the arts of sip­ping Cognac and smok­ing Cuban cigars.

It was a classy yet laid-back af­fair. Those in at­ten­dance were mainly men, but it was un­clear if that was the point of the event. Martell Cognac pro­vided the li­ba­tions for the evening, and even had an ex­pert on hand to of­fer drink­ing tips and ex­plain a bit of the his­tory be­hind the bev­er­age. Other than the movie be­ing an ac­tion film in which Foxx, a cop, be­comes en­tan­gled in gang­ster life when his son is kid­napped, the Cognac and the film didn’t re­ally tie to­gether. Nev­er­the­less, a good deal of fun, sip­ping and puff­ing was had by all.

NO REST FOR THE WICKED TI and Jamie Foxx in Sleep­less
