These Captain Morgan Rum Ad’s Are Quite Entertaining (Video)

I came across these Captain Morgan ads, or “films” as they like to call them, via YouTube a few weeks ago and they’re honestly pretty entertaining. The commercials all come with interesting titles like “To Life, Love & Loot” or “This Is How You Get The Party Started.” I thought it was pretty interesting how each commercial focuses on some kind of chaotic scene and then Captain Morgan comes along to save the day in some uniquely creative way, whether he’s breaking dishes or showing off some impressive platform diving. Check out this latest Captain Morgan commercial which was released about three months ago and has already reached over a quarter of a million views. Obviously there’s a whole slew of people who find their commercials just as entertaining as I do.

But what I’m not over are those delightfully refreshing cocktails that are so present during the summer months. I’m a huge fan of summery drinks so I’ll be drinking them all year long, but if you happen to switch up your drinks to match the season then feel free to savor the last days of summer with one of these cocktails from Belvedere Vodka.

Lushworthy News: Will Smith Makes An Appearance At The Moet Rose Lounge In Miami

The Moet Rose Lounge continued its series of plush events with an event hosted by R&B crooner Trey Songz in Miami over the weekend. I attended the Moet Rose Lounge here in Atlanta a few weeks ago and although I had a blast I have to admit I am a bit jealous that the Miami stop included a special appearance by the one and only Will Smith (sans Jada). Here’s a quick video recap of all that went down at The Setai Miami.

Lushworthy News: Pharrell Williams Featured In New Smirnoff Ad (Video)

To not be much of a drinker, producer/rapper Pharrell Williams sure is doing his thing in the liquor/spirits world. Pharrell recently launched Qream Liqueur and it now looks like he’s representing Smirnoff as well. The producer appears in a unique one-minute ad for the vodka brand which hit the internet late last week. It’s a pretty cool ad, but I’m still trying to figure out why Pharrell looks so sad. If I had access to unlimited amounts of Qream Liqueur and Smirnoff I would be quite the happy camper.

Lushworthy Pics: This KAWS x Hennessy Bottle Is Pretty Darn Sexy

If Hennessy weren’t already Lushworthy enough, the French cognac brand has teamed up with New York-based artist KAWS for a truly one of a kind bottle. KAWS’ Henny creation features the artists signature “X’s” on the label as well as some eye-popping, colorful graphics. The combination of colors that aren’t typical of Hennessy’s palette really makes the bottle pop, but what I found to be the most interesting is the quote on the back of the bottle which reads, “Friends Work Music Art It’s Important To Find The Right Blend…KAWS.” Good luck getting your hand on one of these, only a select number of bottles were made.
