Sunglass manufacturer Oakley teamed up with fine scotch maker Macallan to develop ‘The Flask’, a $ 900 carbon fiber, steel and aluminum drinking flask. Why? Filthy stinking rich people, that’s why.
…the The Macallan x Oakley Flask (£600; roughly $ 900) draws upon the latter’s experience in creating high-end metal objects, with a dark design that brings together food-grade steel, carbon fiber, and aerospace-grade aluminum. Features include a rubberized bottom to keep it from sliding around, a double-sprung cap, and a machined aluminum funnel that threads into the mouthpiece and sports a small air vent on the side.
Man, if there’s some kind of worldly catastrophe where a regular flask isn’t tough enough to survive anymore I’m not sure I want to stick around to get drunk anyways. *smacks myself* I can’t believe those words just came out of my mouth. There’s a video after the jump of a bunch of exotic cars dragging the flask behind them to show you how durable it is, presumably because that’s what rich folks plan to do with it. YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK.
Hit the jump for the video, including that gull-winged Mercedes speeding around with the doors open.
