Remember Duff Beer? The official sponsor of Homer Simpson drinking sessions is now available thanks to a Mexican entrepreneur, Rodrigo Contreras Díaz.

Produced in Jalisco and distributed only via Internet, this limited edition lager beer has been a success, selling over 200 boxes (of 12 bottles each) in two weeks. Each box costs around US$20 plus shipping.

Implications - Target audiences feel a strong connection to pop culture icons and are willing to purchase products that will build upon the relationship of consumer and brand. By creating a realistic product from a pop culture show, businesses are evoking the idea of fantasy amongst the consumers, allowing them to project these fantasies and escape society.
