What if your wine was honest? What if your wine told you exactly how it wanted you to drink it? What if your wine told you exactly what was going to happen to you when you drink it? These are questions that you no longer have to ask, thanks to Adam Teeter, his friend Jeff, some nifty use of Illustrator, and the honest wine bottle labels they created with it. Some of the 26 bespoke labels are pretty dark, some are funny, and some are way too real. All of them were made over a course of four days, although it's not clear how much wine the guys consumed in that time.
Of the project, Jeff writes,
"We all say some crazy things while cracking open a bottle of wine. Maybe we’ve had a long day, or we’ve had some bumps in a relationship, or maybe we’re just trying to let loose.
But what if wine could talk back? What if the bottle you see on the shelf already knew what was going to happen before you put it in your shopping cart? What if that wine truly didn’t care about your feelings and had a filter as great as your grandmother after a glass or two of Pinot Grigio?
These honest wine bottles are just that, and they take no prisoners."
Here are just ten of the labels the guys came up with:
You can see the rest of the fake honest wine labels here. Adam says, "The ideas were all based on situations we found ourselves in while drinking wine." So I've taken the liberty of making up some of my own, based on my unique experiences:
1. THIS WINE PAIRS WELL WITH TEARS AND ADELE
2. CHEAP ENOUGH TO DRINK STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOTTLE LIKE YOU'RE 19 AND AT A PARTY WITH NO CUPS
3. AS YOU DRINK YOU'LL DREAM OF SHARING A FEW GLASSES OF THIS WITH KELLY RIPA AT LUNCH
4. SHUT UP NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR POLITICS
5. YOU'VE TURNED INTO MINDY
6. STOP TRYING TO SCAB CIGARETTES FROM STRANGERS
