You know, we’ve been pressuring those science guys to get us some flying cars (or at least a jet-propelled skateboard) to no avail for a lot of years now, but it looks like the future is catching up after all. We’ve seen spray caffeine (which apparently instantly took hold as a “club drug”), spray chocolate and now, well it was inevitable really: spray alcohol. That’s right, now we’re rounded out the repertoire of legal mood-altering substances, and you can now get “instantly drunk” with one spritz. Too good to be true?
Too freaking weird to be true, actually. While the Internet buzzed — and I’m sure teenagers were googling like bats out of hell — upon hearing about it, it turns out the stuff is real. It is, though, extremely temporary. We’re talking seconds. I mean, not to be a cynic but isn’t that the equivalent of standing up too fast? Headlines are boasting, “Go from sober to drunk in just one spray,” but I think they forgot to add, “…and back to sober” at the end.
Personally, I really dig actually enjoying an artfully made cocktail or a quality glass of wine. It’s called social drinking for a reason. And if it actually were the thing everyone hoped, what kind of sad escapist product would that be? And at $26 apiece… they can’t be serious. Thanks, but I’ll stick to my occasional, sippable drink.
Would you ever try inhalable alcohol?
