Beer Shampoo Turns a Shower Into a Celebration
Old and busted: singing in the shower. New hotness: celebrating in the shower with a bottle of foaming beer shampoo! And you can do just that come December 1st when Bandai's Beer Shampoo pours onto Japanese store shelves.
What's your image of a winner? For many, it's a race winner on the podium happily spraying the admiring crowd with a shaken alcoholic beverage, or the giddy scene in the winning team's locker room after clinching victory - nothing spells "win!" like a beer shampoo!
Now you can party like a champion anytime, anywhere... well OK, in the confines of your shower at least. That's because the creative minds at Bandai have come up with Beer Shampoo. The concept is a winner too: all fun; no mess. Pour a beer over your head (or your friend's head) and get dirty & clean at the same time.
According to Bandai's press release, Beer Shampoo isn't pressurized and won't spurt out of the bottle when opened. To get the optimum mentos-in-Coke effect, you have to add water, shake, and let fly with the foam.
Bandai has given Beer Shampoo a fruity citrus scent just in case those who have already imbibed a few REAL beers don't down the wrong suds. Hey, it could happen - the bottle is convincingly beer-like and the shampoo itself contains hops. Though Bandai has no plans to export Beer Shampoo to the U.S., you can be sure a few product liability lawyers are getting tipsy just thinking about the prospect. (via CrunchGear)
Editor's Note: In the U.S., beer shampoo has been around about as long as beer has. One popular line of beer shampoos is Duffy's.
