I was on the internet this morning and saw a posting about Seagram’s Gin selling DU-RAGS with special edition bottles of Seagram’s Gin. Yes, you read it correctly… DU-RAGS! Buy a bottle of special edition Seagram’s Gin and get a free DU-RAG! So here is the link to where I read it and here is the link to the Detroit, Michigan post where it was first seen!
I am sure that the
super Intelligent, Fashion Forward, man about town will be rushing to the nearest liquor store to grab his gin and du-rag! I am not suggesting that intelligent , fashion forward men do not wear du-rags, I am simply trying to get the public to focus on the marketing techniques of Seagram’s Gin.
I went to the Seagram’s Gin website in efforts to prove, disprove, corroborate or shoot down this possible Facebook hoax. Interestingly enough I first found the 2011 Seagram’s Calendar models. You might be interested to know that 11 of the models are African-American and 1 is Asian, all are female. I guess Seagram’s strongly believes that only men (and lesbians) look at calendars. I guess they also believe that African-American females are the best choice for the Seagram’s Gin Calendar! The Seagram’s Gin website had no mention of the infamous Gin and Du-Rag collaboration (Of Course they would not put such inflammatory and racist nonsense on their very reputable website….) so I will just have to leave this one up to the people to prove or disprove!
What do YOU think about this???
I will close with this, If you are tired of being targeted, STOP making yourself a Mark! ... Think about it…
Peace & Love All
