Miller Time meets Hammer Time

In a marketing effort to lure the beer drinking crowd of 1984, Miller has created a new way to carry a pack of beers. Walking into a party holding these beers you’ll go from b-boy to beer-boy. It’s actually a set of three 6-packs, put together to look like a boombox, so to get the full effect, you actually have to purchase 3 six packs of Miller. You are under no obligation to actually drink the beers, and the fact that this case is only sold in Turkey, so you won’t even be tempted.

Well, thanks to the Japanese Brewing Company, Kirin, you can have both… if you want it. What their scientists did was create a frozen foam made entirely of beer to put on top of your beer. It will apparently keep the beer cold for up to 30 minutes without diluting it.

Chips, burger, beer, burger, beer, shaking hands, chips, salsa, beer, cell phone. Ahh hell… it’s just to much to deal with. Why are parties soo hard?

But now, thanks to the Go Plate (most boring name ever) all of your problems will be solved, and you’ll have entirely new ones to deal with.
