Thought this was pretty hilarious. You know how I get annoyed with all the press about Jay Z’s bub of choice, Armand de Brignac aka Ace of Spades? Well I think the Instagram founders are now on grapefriend’s side.
Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger were in Vegas celebrating their acquisition by Facebook, and Armand De Brignac issued a statement saying they drank “the incredible 30L Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Midas — our towering, 100-pound vessel equivalent to 40 regular-sized bottles.” It costs $150,000 – not much compared to the billion they got from Zucky, but still a lot for bubbles.
But then Instagram’s reps were all “What you talkin’ bout, Willis?” and then Armand issued another statement: “Unfortunately, since sharing this news with you, we have been informed that the information provided to us by a trusted source was not accurate.”
