the bong was real, yes. And it worked. I guess the prototype cost like $5000 to create, I know that sounds insane, but you, know, the guy [who built it] was brilliant, and he developed this thing because he wanted it to work. He wanted me to be able to drink out of it and smoke out of it, and he pulled that off miraculously. It was kind of a stainless steel and airtight rubber device that you could fill with a liquid like water or coffee, and you could also smoke out of the stem which was stuck on like a magnet, but you were able to pull it off and hook it up and make it like a coffee handle.” He pauses then continues “I mean the one thing is, after smoking out of it, your coffee would taste like shit, but you know, it was still a working bong. And it was pretty amazing.
