Giant Jellyfish Beer Bong Review

giantjellyfish8.jpg[Update: Looks like the Beersudz folks were upgrading their shopping cart and there was a little SNAFU that caused the site to say there was no shipping available in most areas. It's all fixed now, so you can head on over and snap one up.]

This just in - the Giant Jellyfish is big. Like, real big. When we first pulled it out of the packaging, we had no idea what we were in for, because we'd seen and used the regular sized Jellyfish beer bong (review). Before being inflated, the Giant didn't look too much different - it had a little more girth, yeah, and there were three tubes coming out of the bottom instead of one, but it didn't seem that far off. One Intern even commented that its inventors should have come up with a way for people to easily clip off one or two tubes to make it easier for less people to use it. After all, you weren't always going to have three people around who wanted to funnel, right?

Then we blew it up.

To be honest, the words "Giant Jellyfish Beer Bong" don't really do it justice. This thing is pretty damned massive once you inflate it, especially considering it starts off fully pocket-sized. Once we got it fully inflated, it reminded us of one of those blow up wading pools you had when you were a kid. Except it was full of beer.

We never quite established scientifically how many beers this gargantuan would hold since we were drinking from a keg, but our trained eye said it was at least a six pack. Since it was so much beer and the inflated holding area got a little floppy, we found the funneling was easiest as a four-man operation (one to hold, three to drink, then rotate) and it went quite well.

The tubes were a bit shorter than on our original model Jellyfish, but that wasn't a problem, and our testers were able to comfortably without sacrificing elbow room. As we held the trough for our crouching comrades, we were vaguely reminded of suckling pigs jostling for a beer teat and we knew all was good.

All in all, the action was quick, the beer capacity was off the charts, and experience was fun. What more can you ask from a giant air-filled drinking device? We have plans on some rainy day to experiment with how to allow one person to drink from it alone, but that hypothesis hasn't been tested yet. Let us know if you have any experience with it.

Oh my young friend! I have seen it (giant jellyfish) and I have done it all by myself, three tentacles in my mouth alone and oh boy the glory that it was! I almost puked, but I set out to do it and conquered it.
