The $2.75 Million Bottle of Champagne
Got $2.75 million lying around? How about blowing it all on a bottle of Champagne? In what may be the most ridiculous, over-the-top promotion to come along in quite awhile, Leon Verres brings you "Le Billionaire Champagne."
For a bit short of three million dollars you get nine liters of smooth, aromatic champagne. Le Billionaire Champagne supposedly has a honey flavor, highlighted by white thorn and vanilla flowery notes - not that you or I will ever taste it.
Of course, for this price you don't just get a bottle - you get a designer dress for the bottle, sprinkled with hundreds of diamonds and topped with, of course, a Russian fur cap.
Only five of these bottles have been made available. Amazingly, four of them have already been bought by billionaires in China, Dubai, and Russia. Who says there's a recession on?
Perhaps the best part of the promotional campaign is the unbelievable cheesy video that features a lot more scantily-clad women than Champagne (not that there's anything wrong with that):
