Snoop Dog,

artikleblak just droppin you a quik shout.

Please reconsider your biz partnership and endorsement of the new Blast Colt 45 alcohol!

This drink contains 2x the alcohol content of the already above average 6 percent beer by Pabst Brewing Co!

Look at the marketing Snoop;  23.5 oz bottle, fruity flavor, lollipop colors and hip hop themes. If they are not targeting OUR children I am not sure what market they are trying to attract.

Snoop remain the Godfather of Rap and NOT the Godfather of Liquid Crack!

These high octane alcohol drinks have been attributing to the demise of many communites for years.

Blast will have more of an negative impact on our children then a real Colt 45 pistol.

Billy Dee Williams, where you at?

Snoop Dog. Keep organizing these kids in your baseball league and drop Blast like a hot potato.

HIP HOP COMMUNITY,  STAND UP!

PARENTS, STAND UP!

PABST’S BREWING CO, SIT DOWN!

peace,

Colt 45 blasted over Blast alcopop ads

The makers of Colt 45 malt liquor have stirred up a controversy with their new beverage that some fear will encourage kids to drink.

Blast is a fruity new blend boasting twice the alcohol as Pabst Brewing Co.’s original malt liquor.

The drink in a colorful 23.5-ounce can resembles soda pop but has an alcohol content of 12%, more potent than a typical can of beer.

“Colt 45 makers are raising the alcohol level from the already high 6% to the even higher 12%, and enticing young people with hip hop themes and lollipop flavors,” said Paul Porter of Industry Ears, a think tank that promotes justice in the media.

Porter said the company is “expanding its market with our children.”

Blast joins the ranks of some high octane drinks such as Four Loko, Joose and Tilt that came under fire late last year for advertising to underage consumers.

Popular rapper Snoop Dogg is the front man endorsing Blast who – according to a distributor marketing video – “has the ability to take Colt 45 brands to a whole new level.”
