Dennis Rodman Thinks His New 'Bad Ass' Vodka Can Bring About Peace With North Korea

By Jon Graef in News on Nov 24, 2013 6:30PM

In the only way he knows how—that is, by suggesting it would bring together the United States and his new best friends, North Korea —Dennis Rodman announced his own signature brand of vodka. He of course dubs it "the original bad ass premium vodka."

Except there's nothing bad ass, original, or premium about vodka, the tofu of liquor.

Here's more:

Six times distilled, All American Made Premium Vodka to really get the party started! With Dennis Rodman being the perfect representative for a wild night out and a great party, our Vodka makes sure you won’t be disappointed when you’re living it up...

According to NBC Chicago, the vodka is "80-proof and contains 40 percent alcohol." Rodman spoke to the Associated Press about his vodka, and apparently said this, because he's Dennis Rodman:

"Everyone knows (President Barack) Obama drinks beer," Rodman said. "But you know what? I'm pretty sure he does have a cocktail here or there. I'd love to see him with a 'Bad Ass Vodka' shot in his hand, toasting to Kim Jong (Un) and me.


Just think, it's up to Dennis Rodman to break ground with North Korea," he said. "I'm the only one in the world who will go talk to this guy and try and find some common ground with these people. I'm hoping that gap between America and North Korea can close. Those guys love a lot about America. They love it. That's why I go over there.

Good luck with that! Rodman's vodka is set to launch Thursday.
