:: adgruntie :: I wanna drink like a celebrity

+ Back in 2004, I posted on Adland about the trend for celebrities to get their own perfume. This morning I was flipping through the latest issue of Time and came across this somewhat surprising tidbit, celebrity wines. I find this a bit disturbing, much more so than with perfume and cologne.

I could see someone like Larry Bird making a sports drink or Madonna making some crappy vodka that tasted like bubblegum or something, but wine? I am having trouble having the concept jive.

Just like a brand, a celebrity can over-extend itself to the point of failure.
