Nobody Needs To Know Why You Started Wearing A Necktie™

This is genius. It is also, perhaps, disingenuous, but amusingly so.

Have you ever been parched while in a hurry to get to your next meeting and don't have time to grab a drink? With FlaskTie™ you can quench your thirst while on-the-go, arriving at your meeting hydrated and ready to nail that presentation and seal the deal.

Yes, that happens all the time. But if hydration is your goal, your other ad slogan wouldn't be...

Don't be the guy at the office with a cup of water.

Look at the image above. The unshaven dude who forgot to brush his hair is mocking the water-drinking dude. Yeah. I know that look.

Just own it. This is a product designed to hide booze in your tie. Less useful at the office, perhaps, than at an alcohol-free wedding reception. (Too bad I have to wear a tux - need a bow-tie version!)

Oh, okay, they get honest at the very end.

Simply fill the fat part of the tie with your favorite poison and when you want a sneaky drink you just take the slim end and suck from the nozzle inside the bottom.

Sucking from a nozzle = not sneaky at all. No way to be subtle about that.

Now to buy a matching suit. Anyone making SuitFlasks yet? Stark Enterprises, perhaps?
