Part of me is beginning to think that perhaps product and package designers are just running out of ideas. Why else, for instance, would it strike it as a good one (an idea… a good idea) to anyone to make Vodka bottles shaped like a bong?
Well, the kicker is that Alphonse Capone Enterprises, from Illinois (I’m not making this up guys… visit the site and see for yourselves) is selling with some degree of success a Vodka packaged in a bottle made to look like a Tommy Gun.
The 750ml, 80-proof vodka product actually began selling as early as January of 2005, but only locally in the DeKalb and Sycamore areas of Illinois. Since then it has been selling in 5 states, 6 countries, and all Army and Air Force bases. The company plans to roll it out nationwide by 2008.
