1978 ON A PLATE! THESE ARE THE COCAINE CONSUMER CATALOGUES OF LOS ANGELES' BROTHER BOB PRODUCTIONS. NOW WE WOULD NEVER SEEK TO GLAMOURISE COCAINE USE. BUT WHEN PRESENTED WITH 14 KARAT SOLID GOLD NOSE SPOONS... WE HARDLY NEED TO!
Ready for this? Even with our superhyperbolic build up this is still surprisingly extra amazing inside!
LIKE WOW! 14K gold stripped razor blades for perfect handling. In six different designs! Based in Los Angeles, Brother Bob Productions positioned themselves at the highest end of cocaine consumerism. Out of this world class!
Accoutrements. On the left - a page of seriously ornate spoons. On the right - the solid gold straws. Priced at $25 an inch! All the objects are photographed life size. The straw in the middle is four inches - $100. In today's money that's close to $400. One can only wonder at Brother Bob's customer base in 1978 - a who's who of nose hoovers...
Magna-Stash: The magnetic stash for under your dash. Trademarked too! As the expert copywriter explains "Minimizes personal risk while saving you $$ in lawyer costs!" Of course you might think that not having a coke habit would minimise personal risk while saving you $$ in lawyer costs. But then we don't live in 1978.
Patent pending. The Kokey Klip! Also TM. You you have to wonder if that trademark regulation board were somehow party to this not so cleverly concealed product party. Designed for the occasion when you wish you had "brought it with you."
More stash than cash! Have to say that the Coke can coke stash can is a work of postmodern genius. The double double bluff. Who would ever think to look in there?!
Another trademark! Cocaccessories™. And just to underline that all that glitters is not gold - a glittering heap of cocaine!
These two catalogues from this one year are rare enough for us to never expect to see them ever again. So it is hello and goodbye to our favourite find of 2020. They are yours. For your museum of 70's drug use, your envisioned Boogie Nights musical, or just casually scattered on your glass and brass coffee table. Buy them on the button below. All in one go.
