Don't shotgun a beer like a D.A.B., bro.
Scott Arellanno and Wyatt Thurston of Raging Mammoth launched a new Kickstarter project that will change the world of shotgunning beer, forever. It's called the Beer Tusk. Arellanno and Thurston are both seniors at the University of Arizona and want to help you party harder than Andrew W.K. on a good day.
" 'Shotgunning' has been around since the eighties. We noticed that people were cutting their fingers and hurting themselves," Arellano said in a phone interview. The entrepreneurs struggled to settle with a final product after various beer claw designs and beta testing with friends, family, college students and graduates looking to relive the glory days.
A pledge for as little as $10 will get you a Beer Tusk that doubles as a keychain bottle cap opener that creates the perfect square to thrust alcohol in your "party hole." The page says there was some thought and science behind this invention:
After a year of testing, through maximum exposure at college parties, tailgates, and gatherings... our tusks are still working like the day they were made.
Other rewards include Raging Mammoth t-shirts, stickers and good times. For a trifling $150 pledge you can get 10 tusks with your name, logo, greek affiliation or ANYTHING else. The tusk makes great gifts for your favorite frat friend or 10 year highschool reunion. Their miniature design make for great stocking stuffers.
