Man Drinks From Jar

CUPPOW! I dunno, I just found this video amusing, in the "puts-a-smile-on-your-face" kind of way. I think it would have been even better if you had attractive women lusting after this jar-drinking guy, but what do I know about advertising? Anyway, the product: "The canning jar already makes an awesome platform for a travel mug: it's easy to clean, made of heat-resistant glass, cheap, durable, and when sealed it doesn't leak. The only problem is that with their large openings, canning jars are not great for spill-free sipping while on the move. So we adapted it—made a new lid that lets us drink like a boss from virtually any wide mouth canning jar. It's a simple eco-friendly alternative to poor-performing and messy disposable hot cups, and over-built and expensive travel mugs."

Probably good that they edited out the part where jar-drinking guy scalds his hand on thermal-conductive-friendly glass that's filled with hot coffee.

@PropSword Yes! The jar-as-hot-beverage-holder only works when that jar has a handle. Or if you commit to also keeping a cozy around?

The cuppow is great. I really enjoy drinking out of all the canning jars I have at home. Now I just need to find something to store all these harvested organs in.

Hey, don't be so harsh. Obviously that dude is the fucking rockstar of drinking stuff, epic slow-mo tells me so.

Don't worry; glass is unbreakable in your bag.

Would it not make sense to just take your pocket knife to a disposable plastic lid?

Yet another thing Chinese taxi drivers beat us to.

This is the canning jar I'd use it with – it has a handle:

@LotaLota the comments for that amazon item says "not for hot beverages"
