Antique Gold or Gold Bottles of that Ace of Spades?

Were the Gold Bottles of that Ace of Spades a Fake?
Have we all been duped by Armand de Brignac's so-dubbed "Gold Bottles of that Ace of Spades" that had the hip-hop community and poseurs pining away for a bottle after seeing Jay-Z's "Show Me What You Got" video?

Armand de Brignac first issued this press release. Hip-hop heads Googled away. Then busted the game.
Business Week has even buzzed about it, with Burt Helm heading down to an unassuming SoHo building to get to the bottom of the story.

I'm kind of glad that the Gold Bottles of that Ace of Spades don't "really" exist, at least not how we thought it did. No wonder it's supposedly so hard to get your hands on a bottle.

Anyhoo, I was having waking "alpha state" nightmares about any unintended young alcoholics I may have created by writing this blog post called Gold Bottles of That Ace of Spades that had Luxist all abuzz.

My mom always said, "All that glitters is not gold!"

It was a cool picture though...and I miss your cool blue background!

Thanks, Bonnie -

I just switched to Blogger Beta, and I figured folks surfing my blog during official work hours might not appreciate the obvious dark blue background of a possibly non-work related website when their boss sidles up behind them in their cubes. But maybe I'll play around with another color.
