We Vote For Vodka……..And Urban Outfitters?!

……..could you imagine? Well, you do not have to imagine; it is real! More importantly, does it endorse drinking alcohol?

Someone thought of the idea, and brought it to life, on a shirt that is. And, you can buy it, along with many others, like “United States Drinking Team”.

The popular chain, Urban Outfitters, created a new line of shirts. The line consists of overtly phrased graphic tees. Don’t you just love graphic tees?

They say everything we want to say, without us actually speaking the words.

In any regard, many individuals are upset about the tees.

In fact, the Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization have released statements stating that the tees endorse underage drinking and glorify drinking alcohol.

One attractive and trendy top exclaims something like, “Vodka, I’d Vote for it”. As mentioned above, another tee states the phrase in the article heading, “United States Drinking Team”.

Would do you think? Are the tees expressions of creativity and tongue in cheek fun or do they boil do to covert advertising and marketing for alcoholic beverage companies?!

Personally, I do not think that the shirts endorse drinking in anyway. Furthermore, there is no subliminal message or indoctrination.

Besides, it’s not like the shirts say, “drive under the influence of alcohol”. If they did, perhaps we would have a problem.

If you or someone that you know is struggling with alcoholism or drug addiction, please call now. We can help you.
