Beverage Boy on Shark Tank
Floating Beverage Cooler - Episode 615- 2/6/2015
|Bev Boy Floating Beverage Cooler|
The story behind the Beverage Boy is a Superhero Otter possessing the super powers needed to float any beverage perfectly on top of the water. To bring this amazing super power floating cans and cups to the market, the Superhero Otter first started with a traditional foam cooler holding all 12 ounce sized cans. He then took his secret Otter technology how to float on water and built a patented polypropylene arm extending down below the surface. It's this extending arm with a counterweight on the bottom that proved Beverage Boy really does float on water just as good as any Otter can.
Within five Months of the Bev Boy Floating Beverage Cooler idea being born, the Beverage Boy Otter appeared in his first video commercial. As you can see in this one-minute video, the Superhero Otter gives you lots of good reasons to have your beverage floating around.
Bev Boy Reviews before Shark Tank ShowThe Bev Boy made me immediately think of the Bev Buckle also seen on the Shark Tank in Season 4. Both inventions solve a problem what to do with a beverage so you're not always holding it, but, of course, the Beverage Boy works best when inside a pool of water. Sure, the promotional video above proves this product works outside the water, but it looked more like a Beer on a stick balancing on the side of a table. If you could remove the extending arm when you're not swimming you'd certainly have more options to set a beverage down, but I'm not sure its possible with this patented design.
I would imagine most of the Sharks have swimming pools themselves, and they'll see the benefits having a few Beverage Boy's floating around. It's not only a convenient product, but will virtually eliminate any drinks getting spilled in the swimming pool.
The current cost for a Beverage Boy is $9.99 per cooler available on the website. Considering most consumer's would be interested in purchasing multiple units, it's interesting there's no bundling options available, not even a Shark Tank Special. Maybe like a six pack special of floating coolers for the next pool party would indeed make sense.
It's good to see there's a picture of the Bev Boy's being Featured on the Shark Tank at the top of the website that's always a good sign before the Show. Did the Sharks invest in the floating Beverage Boy invention? We'll know tonight when this Brand New Episode airs on ABC.
