The Apple Watch will disappoint some people. It’s inevitable. The Jim Beam Apple watch will not, because it’s an expandable shot glass you wear on your wrist. How can that disappoint?
Dumb marketing gimmick, right? Sure, but it’s one the Kentucky distillery has really committed to. Apple has a distinct visual style, one you know when you see. This video nails that aesthetic, from the executive voiceover to the slow motion rotation shots of the “watch” itself.

It’s a one-note joke, sure, but we think it gets an A+ for effort.
No word on whether this thing includes a headphone jack. Doesn’t matter. The Apple Watch can’t pour you a drink. The Jim Beam Apple watch can. Checkmate.
