Looks like losing at the 2015 Oscars won’t be so bad. This year the gift bags handed to losers in the Best actor, Best actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director categories will receive their very own Haze Vaporizer by Haze Technologies. The Haze Vaporizer retails at $250 dollars and it has two bowls allowing users to double the amount of what they smoke, or mix dried herb, concentrates, or oils. Why the Oscars? CEO Taylan Saydar wanted to hit the Hollywood market to gain exposure: “A lot of organizations are trying to make people aware of the downside of smoking. Everybody is self conscious and looking for ways to still consume nicotine but in a healthy way, we are trying to represent the high-end, high-fashion, highly technological product.” This is actually a good move on their part. Vaporizers have been gaining popularity due to the health benefits: less lung damage caused by smoke. And that popularity has made it so that there are now so many different types of vaporizers out there, attaching your name to the Oscars is a great way for people to notice your product.
I’m not sure who the nominees will be in 2015, but I like to picture Leo Dicaprio using his Haze after yet another Best Actor snub, on a yacht with a beautiful woman without a care in the world. Rich people get all the cool, free swag. (via)
