Get a Handle On It

An unopened handle of Smirnoff Vodka for the boys in the back.

I actually wasn't working when this came in. I was just stopping by to try to score some reuse paper plates for a dinner party I was hosting when I saw this just chilling in front of the Office Aisle EndCap box. Needless to say, it was gone by the time I came to work the next morning.

Hans' Fresh New Look

Maybe Hans heard some of our criticism because he has decided to bust out a whole new look...

It's fresh. It's youthful. I see he is still sporting those leather chaps, though.
And it looks like he is wearing a brand new pair of Nike SB P-Rod Signature Sneakers! 
Swell, the Junk Store mannequin is sporting more expensive footwear (with better arch support) than I am.

The Further Adventures of Hans

It has been a little while since we checked in on our old buddy Hans. It looks like he is getting in to the baseball season with a new Yankees cap. And maybe he is going on a trip or something cuz his bag is packed.
Come to think of it, I think Hans' look is getting kind of stale...

Proud American

Celebrate Independence Day (the day, not the movie) with the latest in a seemingly never ending stream of poorly designed "patriotic" T-Shirts:

V.S.O.P. Have a sip ta dis.

When our pals over at EcoHaul stop by after hours to drop four palettes of tiny bottles and stoppers on us, and then surprise us with box upon box of promotional materials from various malt liquor manufacturers (more posts on these later), you just know everything is going to be all right.

I am particularly thrilled by the cases of motion-sensor activated rapping malt liquor cans of V.S.O.P. Blend*. The slightest motion and out pumps my boy Snoop Dogg kickin out the chorus some obscure, but downright funky hip hop track.
I even made a little video of it...

When I initially did some online research about this amazing song and beverage, all I could find is some random press release from 2003 on the "Rap News Network".
But then, just now, after I uploaded my youtube video and did another quick search before writing this post, I found that the VSOP official website has re-launched witha V.I.P. Room (coming soon), and even two Hummer H2 give-aways! Apparently, "It's in the Drop".

Most importantly, I've found a link an MP3 of a longer version of the track. Just loop that shit in pro-tools and shake that booty!

So new we post these up all over the metropolis in hopes that a fellow Junk Pirate might stumble by it and activate that funky-ass beat. Let's dip ta dis!

*Not to be confused with actual VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) Cognac.
