The Football™ from Urban Mercenaries is a boozy yet classy James Bond-esque briefcase inspired by the presidential "Nuclear Football".
Obviously the Nuclear Football is a guarded secret seeing as it's essentially a big red dooms day button, but here's a bit of known background information:
The Nuclear Football's current usage was bought around during John F. Kennedy's tenure as President of the USA after the Cuban Missile Crisis. As the Soviet War continued and a potential nuclear strike was feared, the government developed a way for the president to launch a nuclear attack in the event there was no fixed command center nearby. Containing information such as launch codes, retaliatory options, procedures for the Emergency Broadcast System and sites around the country where the president can be taken in an emergency, it is kept by a military aide who accompanies the president at all times.
Queue The Football™...
Using the tagline "JFK invented it, we perfected it", The Football™ claims to be the ultimate gentleman's tool for achieving the perfect evening. Inside the metallic box you will find all you need to not only have a boozy party, but the essentials to recover in the morning too!
The Football™ contains tequila, vodka, energy drinks, a martini shaker, shot glasses, a bottle opener, handcuffs, a deck of cards, dice, breath mints, ibuprofen, eye drops and heartburn/indigestion tablets. No cheap stuff either, all the drinks and medicine are recognized and respected brands!
Possibly a viral idea that got way out of control, the Urban Mercenaries website leaves me to assume they are targeting the bachelor party market with this gadget.
Oh, and the set of rules and etiquette for correct usage of The Football™ makes for a great read too!
