People cough up $38 for 'Hot Dog Water' at Vancouver festival

Hot dog water for $37.99? True story.
At the annual Car Free Day festival this past weekend in Vancouver, the unusual product made headlines catching the attention of people on the city’s main street.
The drink, which comes in a VOSS-like bottle filled with unfiltered water and a single hot dog, is billed as “keto compatible” and promises to help the drinker “lose weight, increase brain function, look younger, [and] increase vitality,” according to the sign at the booth.
(Yeah that stuff MIGHT increase brain function- SHORTLY AFTER the general public starts MOCKING the customers of this product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
The sign also claims that the drink is gluten-free, rich in sodium, and a source of electrolytes.
“We’ve created a recipe, having a lot of people put a lot of effort into research and a lot of people with backgrounds in science really creating the best version of Hot Dog Water that we could,” Hot Dog Water CEO Douglas Bevans told Global News.
This booth that sells unfiltered hot dog water is hands down the strangest thing at Car-Free day, and I have no idea – literally none – as to whether it is real or an elaborate stunt pic.twitter.com/NK2KcTfnHm

And despite its hefty price, there was no shortage of people willing to try it.
(DAMN! THERE IS NEVER a professor of psychiatry around when you need one! I would guess that most of the customers are civil service union Hogs! They are about the only Cdn people left with money to burn on a bottle of greasy water - spiced with an edible plastic wrapped tube of meat byproducts featuring such sweet treats as ground up Pig bladders and anuses!)
“They’ve been drinking it for hours,” Bevans said. “We have gone through about 60 litres of real hot dog water.”
But what stood out most about the protein-rich beverage was its sales pitch: “Hot Dog Water in its absurdity hopes to encourage critical thinking related to product marketing and the significant role it can play in our purchasing choices.”
(They SOLD SIXTY LITRES of hot dog water in what was essentially a MARKETING PRANK? WTF?????????????)
Bevans, an artist and tour operator, said he created the concept as a commentary on the “snake oil salesmen” of health marketing.
Whether this was a real or elaborate stunt, it didn’t come cheap as the CEO spent about $1,200 on bottles, labels, branding, and other costs, the media outlet reported.
(Really? Lets see- at 3 bottles of hot dog water per litre- and 60 litres sold at $38.00 each- and that means 180 bottles sold no doubt HST was charged as well- but that is a separate item? So after expenses the guy has over $5500.00 bucks in pure profit!)
(Gosh- I would like in on a marketing prank like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
