Basketball star and Kim Jong Un BFF Dennis Rodman is launching his own vodka (Rodka?) brand, “Bad Boy,” which he hopes will ease tensions between the US and North Korea. Yao Ming wine, eat your heart out. AP reports.
A Rodman-branded vodka is set to debut this week, just the latest business venture he’s had a fling with, stretching from wrestling to authoring a children’s book to even, yes, unofficial basketball ambassador to North Korea. He can count Kim as a fan of the vodka – the duo drank from two cases Rodman brought over for his recent visit in September, where they talked hoops and planned an exhibition game in January.
“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.
“That would be awesome.”
“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.
“People don’t believe that.”
We guess this means he’s rescinding his comments about Barack Obama being an asshole .
We wonder if you take this vodka in “three point shots” and if it’s hard to “rebound” from a binge. Zing!
