Colt 45 and Snoop Dogg Team Up for New Blast Beverage
When Colt 45 and Snoop Dogg get together you know it's class all the way. Colt 45 is entering the alcoholic-beverage-disguised-as-a-soda market with its new Blast beverages. According to The Wall Street Journal, Blast will have a 12% alcohol content (twice that of original Colt 45) and be available in four flavors - strawberry lemonade, grape, blueberry pomegranate and raspberry watermelon.
Since Colt 45 is best known for being the beverage most likely to be consumed on a street corner disguised in a brown paper bag, the advertising campaign should come as no surprise. In the ad, Snoop Dogg is dressed like a pimp, complete with white fur coat of dubious origin, cane and custom car. Snoop is surrounded by girls and smokes a blunt.
