Condoms, and candles, and swag — oh my! It looks like the good people of MTV are really catering to their talent this year at the MTV Video Music Awards. Each person attending will receive a bag of goodies, as per all award shows, but MTV has really heightened the goods. According to an insider there’s a few items in the bag that stand out.
The MTV swag bag features a bundle of condoms for the talent, to well, utilize at their own discretion. Along with the condoms are candles, surely so that the talent can set the mood off right after they walk away with their moon man awards. Sitting in audience for a few hours can be such a hunger pain, so the talent will also be able to feed their munchies with an unconventional snack. The snack of choice is everyone’s favorite college dorm treat — hot pockets.
Of course since MTV seems to be on the cusp of what’s hip, the bags do have a “green” theme, so what does that mean exactly? Well, it looks like the swag bag will be re-purposed with recycled booze. Yes, you read that right — recycled booze. The recycled booze includes a Bombay Sapphire gin bottle which VMA favorites like Rihanna can then turn into an all-purpose necklace after drinking the contents of the bottle. For the hipster chic the bag also features guitar strings that have been designed as bracelets and necklaces.
Now MTV didn’t forget about the essential bling that comes along with most of these award show swag bags. The bag will include Robbie French Designs’ vintage belts, Stone Rose’s button downs, and a printed top by NIKKI RICH.
What do you think about MTV’s VMA swag bag? Is it too excessive? Too bizarre?
