Like most Kickstarter type crowd funding campaigns, this doesn’t yet exist as a tangible product:
$45,000 goal. You can check out the “9mm Vodka” Indiegogo campaign here.
*Yawn* really? A gun shaped liquor bottle? Yea that hasn’t been done before *eye roll*. Sure maybe there hasn’t been an Uzi bottle, I’ll give him that… but is the world really at a loss because of that? To make things worse you’re not even getting any liquor at any of the pledge levels because federal laws apparently prohibit offering alcohol as a reward to people backing a campaign (booooo).
I know they say 9X% of selling liquor is branding, but I think all this is just too basic for anyone to actually care. The bottle itself, if done correctly might look kind of cool… you get that with the $50 and above pledges. According to the Indiegogo description dude does seem to know his glass. Trying to raise $45,000 by hawking bullshit CafePress style branded items (see below) to raise the money though is just weak, and further sullies the whole campaign. Oh and a video of a girl shooting a mini-gun… WHAAAAAAT GIRLS INVOLVED IN MARKETING LIQUOR? That’s another perk he’s offering that has NEVA BEEN DONE BEFO’. haha
I rarely drink vodka, but when I do I don’t pay a premium for any non standard bottle shape made for the young kid drinking market and pretentious douchebags who think having a bottle in the shape of a skull, Uzi, or whatever else is going to somehow make them the envy of everyone. Worse yet are douchebags who buy expensive bottles once and then pour cheap stuff into those expensive bottles. If you like Smirnoff, or that’s all you can afford that’s nothing to be ashamed off! However, if you pooled together some struggle money to buy a fancy bottle in order to lie and pass your cheap liquor off as being higher class you should be ashamed.
If this actually does reach it’s $45,000 goal I think I made take a bit of a break from blogging. I’ll draw up a Deagle, AR-15, Glock, AK-47 etc.. all in Solidworks then I’ll render them in realistically in glass using Bunkspeed, start a Kickstarter with the pictures and make MILLIONS. I won’t even need to contact Smirnoff or anyone about filling my bottles with liquor. I can just sell empty bottles like this guy! muahahahah.
