Re: Success of the Mya "Pimp" Hookah
My biggest issue with your reflection Interpol, if they did make it for a Rap star... think about what many of they (rap artists) are related to or sing about... the hookah may only be reinforced as a "drug related" item and further worsen the stigmata the general public holds toward them.
It can't be good in the long run either way I see it, it was a bad business choice (but that's just my .02 cents). Even if only 1 is sold, if it gets on TV and is portrayed in a bad light it won't make those who enjoy hookahs look any better.
Maybe, just maybe I'm horribly wrong and it will increase the publics interest in them for the good, but I fear it won't.
