So you’ve been out at a bar for a few belts and nature calls. You head to the men’s room to relieve yourself and hear a small voice from out of nowhere.
“Hey there big guy, having a few drinks?” But wait, there’s more.
To point out why drunk driving is a bad thing the urinal cake says "don't drive drunk. If you do and you get arrested, the next urinal you pee in will be in jail. With a harry guy named Bubba standing behind asking you to pick up the soap and be his bit**.”
The product is called Interactive Urinal Communicators and states like Colorado and Michigan are hoping the bathroom buddy will make people think more about driving while intoxicated.
The cakes are motion activated and deliver several messages.
In Colorado the message has changed from “don’t drink and drive” to “drink and don’t drive.”
Those behind the change say that switch acknowledges people won’t stop going to bars but they hope it will make them reconsider driving after they are tipsy.
