Happy 420! As one of the smartest horror parodies we’ve seen, Cabin in the Woods had to feature a stereotypical stoner horror character. His name is Marty, and early in the movie we see him pull up his car sipping from a portable coffee mug. Except, it’s not a mug at all but rather a giant retractable water bong. Of course fans of the film will know that the prop becomes even more significant later in the story!
The folks at the appropriately named coffeemugpipe.com were inspired by the movie, and set out to make this awesome prop a reality.
The version seen in the film cost over $5000 to create, but these guys have managed to make the design do-able for production. It features separate chambers so you can enjoy your hot coffee and uhum…’flavoured tobacco’ at the same time.
Here’s the description from the company who designed them: ‘Designed to have the mobility of a travel coffee mug, then easily and quickly telescopes out into a water pipe for smoking tobacco! This one of a kind unique smoking pipe looks like a standard travel coffee mug that you can take with you on the go. It compacts into the the same size as a standard travel 20 oz mug. When it’s time to smoke tobacco, simply unsnap the bottom and telescope the device out. Perfect for your tobacco smoking needs. The handle of the coffee cup then unscrews and is inserted into the base. The mouthpiece that you smoke from is located on the top horizontal portion of the handle. Very easy to use design!. The ultimate coffee mug pipe!’
