Would Pussy ever be allowed in Lebanon?

As part of our Boss Cam section, we always share funny or interesting photos sent to us by one of our readers.

Today’s Boss Cam comes to us from Rony Khoury who, during a recent visit to Turkey, noticed a popular yet surprisingly branded drink: PUSSY!

Established by self proclaimed “pussy magnet” Jonnie Shearer, this energy drink was born to replace all the other competing products which provide a boost to the brain at the cost of an awful medicinal after taste.

Depending on your preference, you can have Pussy with ice, Pussy “sec”, or for the really creative ones Pussy with creme.

Pussy comes in numerous flavors and can be found in different countries such as the UK, Turkey, Europe, Africa, Latin America, Carribean, Australia and America to name a few.

Knowing that one of the distributors of the brand globally is the well known Carrefour, which has opened its doors in Lebanon not long ago, we cannot help but wonder if the Lebanese will one day see Pussy on their local supermarket shelves.

We were not able to obtain information from the brand’s website whether this is an option being considered, however, with the track record Lebanon holds in erratic backward decisions, we cannot help but question this possibility: will the Lebanese government boycott Pussy in our name?

In my opinion, freedom, is not the cliché concept we are familiar with. It’s much more than being able to express oneself. It’s our ability to get exposed, try, accept or refuse Pussy. Many may argue however the effect that this freedom may have on society.

What do you think? Will the Lebanese people ever get the chance to taste Pussy?

You can visit the Pussy website and facebook page for more information on the brand.

UPDATE: Interesting update through the comment box from Rudy, one of our awesome readers:

“Pussy energy drink was in fact in Lebanon in the summer of 2011. I was the Art Director at the distribution company at that time… It flopped IMMENSELY because Lebanese people simply couldn’t accept its name and no one would wanna be associated to it (from bars to parties passing by supermarkets and grocery shops)…”

    Hey buddy! Super cool blog!

    A little piece of information: Pussy energy drink was in fact in Lebanon in the summer of 2011. I was the Art Director at the distribution company at that time… It flopped IMMENSELY because Lebanese people simply couldn’t accept its name and no one would wanna be associated to it (from bars to parties passing by supermarkets and grocery shops)…

    Keep up the good work!!

      Wow! I would have expected the people to adopt it and the government to oppose it. Thanks a lot for the valuable info Rudy! Will update.

    The little dakkaneh next to the port used to have a Pussy awning, I always found it funny. It was there a few years ago but gone now. That said, just the other week, I was coming from Beit Meri back to Beirut and once again saw what looked like a fresh, new Pussy awning on a shop on the way down….. Don’t drink these sorts of things personally, but maybe it’s still on the market…..
