  • Defcon 3

    I picked some of this up at a dollar store, and it isn't bad for the price (a six pack was a buck!)

    A dollar store is where it belongs. Just one more crappy drink that tried to ride the red bull wave and popular ghetto culture.

      I don't doubt that the product is crap. But I didn't think that even a product backed by the marketing support of a rapper/producer would end up in the dollar store. I wonder what they did wrong.

        Maybe they would have been more successful if they named it something a little more sexual, or targeted a market smaller than the average mans Hat size, or gave it a cultural specific name, or had sexually suggestive graphics on it, or suggested its use was almost illegal, or named it after a recreational drug, or named after a football player, baseball player, actor, etc, or (insert joke here).
        Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

          The defcon thing is a Russell Simmons thing. Making his money by promoting gang culture to American youth.

            Proving my point that Big Names and/or culturally specific names do not sell drinks on their own.
            He probably figured his name would get him in the door to major distributors and all he got was small time guys pimping it in liqour stores.

              I don't care who's backing what product, but I can't complain for a measly dollar. Another man's trash is another man's tresure.

                    How is Russel Simmons promoting the gang culture?

                      Rap and hip hop among other urban ghetto ventures. Is promoting and sanctioning gang culture and violence.
                      You may have another opinion, but this is my opinion.

                        alright...just wish you knew the difference between gangster rap and hip hop...two totaly different types...so I would have to say you are wrong that you think Def Con is promoting the "gang" life style. If you wanted to say that drink does not sell and wastes space...I'll agree with you there...but thats about it

                          Ron,
                          I personally believe there is no difference between ???????gangsta??????? rap and hip-hop.
                          Def Con is part of a violent lawless subculture that is only serving to harm the youth of our inner cities and our society in general.

                          And the drink is a dog that taste terrible, collects dust and wastes valuable self-space.

                          But I hope we can agree to disagree and that there are no hard feelings. We have both been on this board a long time and I have learned a lot from you.

                            Hey, I wanted to talk about the drink, not complain about gangsta culture.

                              David, things just sort of go off on tangents around here.
                              You never know where a thread will end up.
