Band in a Bubble?

Apparently, UK band The Darkness, whose big US hit was "I Believe in a Thing Called Love," are contemplating living in a bubble while they record their album, and will document the whole experience for a reality TV show called Band in a Bubble. 

The program would feature the spandex-sheathed rockers locked inside a sealed capsule in London’s Trafalgar Square for a month, while they are filmed 24/7 recording their new album. The entertainment value of such a show would presumably stem from watching the band members crack under the pressure of constant camera scrutiny, ever-looming deadlines, and potential bickering between the Darkness's two Hawkins brothers, Justin and Dan.

I wonder if the bubble would be clear or opaque?  And what about going to the bathroom?  That could be a problem in a clear capsule.  When I went to England, you had to pay one pound to use the public loo (that's Brit-speak for the bathroom, you Americans!).  Would they have to pay, considering that the loo is outside and might therefore be considered public?

In other claustrophobic news, David Blaine is planning on living inside an aquarium for awhile.  His bathroom problems are on a whole different level!
