Jake Bugg might not be old enough to legally drink here in the States, but that’s not stopping his publicists from sending gun-shaped bottles of Mexican tequila to American radio stations.
Check out this Hyos de Villa pistol bottle, complete with 007-esque Bugg logo and the tagline “The Way The West Was Won.” It arrived at a US radio station just this morning, complete with Bugg’s new CD.
So that’s why Britpop failed in the US — not enough tequila bribes. Or guns.
Anyway, this is pretty cool, and if you’re not a fan of Bugg, the jokes about either wanting to shoot yourself or drink the pain away essentially write themselves.
