We asked four clothes-affiliated artists whom we like to give us their take on one of the finest folk-art traditions that America has developed—the beer bong.
Brendan Donnelly, who draws some of the best T-shirt graphics in the world (such as the "27" series, which features all the rock stars who died at 27 on the front and their cause of death on the back), made this hippie beer bong by wrapping it in shredded poncho (a.k.a. drug rug) material. Ex-Imitation of Christ partner, design expert, and professional smartass Matt Damhave contributed this beer-bong syringe. The fucking thing works, too. His new venture is called Event-Horizon Research Agency. We aren't sure what it is yet.
Classy, high-end, famous fashion designer genius Benjamin Cho made this vacuum-sealed emergency-can-of-Bud-and-beer-bong kit. Designer Judi Rosen (who owns a store filled with babes) made this huge black dick. It is also a fully functional beer bong. She saw XXX that night, that's why it says "Ice Cube's Dick" on the rim of the bong.
