Snoop Dogg Promotes Blast by Colt 45 an Alcoholic Drink

 

The rap star Snoop Dogg is promoting a new alcoholic drink, which is expected to be very controversial. Not so long ago, an alcoholic drink (Four Loko) with crazy effects on the body was banned from sale. Now, a similar fruit flavored alcoholic drink having the same effects is going to be promoted by Snoop Dogg. It’s called Blast by Colt 45, is produced by Pabst Brewing Company and is going to be released on April 5. A video that promotes the drink, features Snoop Dogg posing with young women without many clothes on them, in a photo shoot.

About the ingredients of Blast, well about 12 percent is alcohol and it contains caffeine. Caffeinated alcohol drinks are very dangerous for health, that’s why brands like Four Loko were banned in the past. The new thing about the drink promoted by Snoop Dogg is the variety of flavors, they are all fruited and you can choose between blueberry pomegranate, raspberry watermelon, strawberry lemonade or grape. John Challis, senior vice president of Daytop Treatment Services said: “You look at this product, and you think it’s a fruit drink.”

Promoting campaign of this drink seems to be encouraging young drinkers. New York City Councilman Robert Jackson already called for Blast to be banned in New York stores. “Blast, along with similar drinks, is specifically targeted to younger people.” he said.

  1. WHY THE HELL SHOULD SNOOP DOG – ENDORSE MORE – AND HIGHER ALCOHOL CONTENT IN THIS DRINK?????

    WAKE UP – AAA ALREADY HAS MILLIONS OF ALCOHOLICS!

    STOP THROWING THIS AT YOUNG ADULTS…..THEY DONT NEED MORE BOOZE – A DRINK WITH TWICE THE ALCOHOL CONTENT.

    THE COMPANY SHOULD BE FINED – FOR MARKETING THIS HIIGH CONTENT DRINK – TO YOUNG ADULTS……WITH TEENS WANTING IT !!!!!!

    STOP THE DRUNK ERA – WE NEED TO SOBER UP!!!!

  2. First of all, it does not have caffeine…four loco was banned for having caffeine and that was last year, second…it all comes down to RESPONSIBILITY!! Anybody who says somebody underage will want this because of the fruit in it needs to visit a beer distributor and check out the very large malt beverage section with hundreds of fruity flavored drinks with vibrant packaging

  3. There is no caffeine in this drink and the alcohol content is WAY lower than a bottle of liquor. Young adult should be old enough to buy the product in the first place….quit blaming the product and put the blame where it belongs.
