Whitesnake? More Like Winesnake. No?


After laying dormant for a good twenty years in America, British hair band Whitesnake is back. But they aren’t coming out with a new album, rather they’re attempting to shill their new brand of…wine? Yes, the band that became famous in America for letting Tawny Kitaen (then-wife of frontman David Coverdale) polish the hood of a car with her breasts as she rolled all over it is releasing a new vintage called Whitesnake Zinfandel. It’s just that easy folks, just turn your name into a wine and the marketing possibilities are endless.

Coverdale, ever the wordsmith, said the beverage is a “bodacious, cheeky little wine, filled to the brim with the spicy essence of sexy, slippery Snakeyness. I recommend it to complement any & all grown up friskiness & hot tub jollies.” Is there any image more 80s than drinking wine and partying in a hot tub? Also, thanks, David, for naming our new band. “We regret to inform you that due to a mishap involving a case of Whitesnake Zin and some excessive friskiness, the Hot Tub Jollies will be canceling their summer tour.”
