Default Success of the Mya "Pimp" Hookah

Love it or hate it, people were talking about it for quite a while.

I wonder how many, if any, vendors are going to start carrying it and if we will ever learn which mystery celebrity requested it to be fashioned in that way.

Anyone pick one up?

I haven't seen any retailer sell it nor I have heard of anyone buying it... seems too tacky.

It looked so tacky, I would very surprised any main-stream vendor sell many or any of them.

I could buy some PAINT pens and do it better myself! (And I have :P)

I wonder why the golden "puff" glitter paint instead of 18/24k flat paint, atleast then it would have had alittle class/style. Just alittle...

Who knows who ordered it... Only MYA knows *cue spooky music*

LOL - If they removed the "PIMP" and $, I'd buy it - loved that stem!

I have no idea what the sales of that abomination are but I hope itís failure. This whole pimp thing really makes me see red. When I see the hollow, soulless eyes of the 50 year old teenagers selling themselves it gives me fits of homicidal rage followed quickly by depression and hatred for the people that profit from the exploitation of others and those that pay to debase strangers. To hold up a pimp as something to emulate is unspeakably foul. I will never buy anything from Mya and I hope others act like wise.

I was thinking about that last night. Didn't they say that is was a one of a kind made for some star?
I dont think i'd buy one unless it was for a gag gift or something. It was so tacky! lol

This will be the best hookah in the trailer park.

MYA is really losing touch with the quality, stunning beauty type of hookah....

Its like they are trying to reach the "Swap meet/ Flea market" crowd.

I can kinda see why they would make it though. They are a business and they are trying to reach as many people as they can. Hopefully those people who buy it just for the "PIMP" will actually learn learn more about hookahs and eventually move on to something better, like a real Mya or a Khalil Mamoun.

I'm not saying I like the pimp hookah, I think that entire hookah is hideous. I just think it could be good for Mya's business and possibly get more people into hookah.

My money is, they made it for Lil Jon to compliment his "pimp" cup and his "crunk juice."

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.

Sam has a good point I think in that getting more people into our hobby is not always a good thing. If it brings in more people that into worshiping criminal behavior and thug life style i'd view that as a negative thing. Even if the poser thugs smoke shisha (which I doubt will ever happen) it is simply taking something that we like and associating it with a very negative and anti-social lifestyle.

Remember that MTV Cribs where they were at one of those boy bands cribs..... and he was like all washed up and shit......... but he had a MYA Saray?

Probably that dude....... or Vanilla Ice.

Little John has the decency to at least pimp some Swarovsky Crystals.... besides.. he has his own artisan that decorates his cups.... so He probably would have pimped his Bohemian base using her services.

I hate this hookah, I think it is tacky, and my opinions match those of sammmns! I estimate that 20% of people will use it as a hookah for smoking shisha, and the other 80% will use it for something else. It is a step backwards on bringing traditional hookah into the positive light of society.

Who would come up with this design, and what group of people with any degree of marketing knowledge would approve this design for production.
...This hookah is like a bad used car lot commercial, developed and composed by an uneducated marketing company or by MYA themselves...either way, it is stupidity of the highest degree!

Just my .02 cents!

Yeah, that thing is gaudy as hell -- a disgrace to the machine. Just because people are talking about it doesn't mean it's being sold with success. For the most part, people are talking about how dumb or ridiculous it is.
