A Really Cool Piece of Art...on a Bottle?

I was at QuikTrip yesterday (yes, that's how you spell it)...looking for some caffeine to wake me up--when I came upon this. Even though I'm only a casual Mountain Dew fan, I had to buy it.

I love the trippy, psychedelic art-style. The aluminum bottle is pretty cool too. I read an article in the business section of the New York Times about how Coke and Budweiser were going to start putting out aluminum bottles (apparently Pepsi Co. is doing it too).

Here is my bottle:



And here is the full artwork (which I found here):

Ooh I so want one! I hope the Australian versions of the companies start taking up the idea :-)

It's so beautiful! There's nothing on it but the artwork, the nutrition label, and the tiny little "Mountain Dew" at the top. Strange that they would put such a bottle out, don't you think?

Then again, I bought it BECAUSE it was so cool. So I guess they DO know what they are doing.

Hope you find one out there in Australia...

I keep being reminded of the guinness commercials, seen here:

A bottle? Brilliant!

I've sampled the Budweiser in aluminum bottles...good, but you have to have a bottle opener.

When Leah came home from Chicago, and I showed this to her she said it was cooler than the pics online suggest.

So there ya go, this thing is actually COOLER in real life (if that could be possible). Go find one.
