i think there are times when people out there push the envelope to far. Well this is a new low, It makes Bong Water and Sum Posie look like goody goodies. http://www.sexkola.com/drvmov
I know my pastor would like to get this trash off the net. Any ideas how?

Should religious leaders really be controlling the internet?

I thought the commercial was well done.
But I think most people on this board know how I feel about overtly sexual names for beverages.

Definitely. If you need gimmicks like that to sell your product, you might as well save your money and stay out of the industry.

I have a few cheap jokes that are inappropriate for this board; staring with Micheal Jackson and ending with Paul Reuben (Pee Wee Herman). LOL
If only you could read my mind. LMAO

Going by the BevNets review someone should take the product , relabel it under a better name and it should be a national best seller.
Who Knows?

A company sent me samples a couple of years ago. I had bought some caffeinated chocolate from them the year before and never reordered but that’s another story.

The soda they sent had hard-core sex pictures on every bottle. Who the hell did they think I could sell that to any way? I mean full penetration sex pictures on the label. Photos real people not cartoons. Very strange. I think the company was called XTZ but I’m not sure. It was a while ago.

What is wrong with some people in this industry?

Marketing is best used used when it leaves a lot to the imagination. By putting such sexually graphic pictures on the bottle it only leaves the consumer room enough to make very concentrated and often negative opinion of the product. It may well be the best tatsting drink that BevNet has ever sampled but would you walk into a store with your wife, kids, mother, etc and pull one off the shelf?

This stuff was different.
Climax
Sum poosie
Energy 69
Dickens cider
Sex cola
Ect

That’s one thing. I don’t like the sex theme BUT.

This stuff was hard-core porno on the bottle. This went so far beyond bad taste.
There was not a single customer I could have brought this product to.
I could have shown it around for a laugh I guess.
