The Mel Gibson 'Bi-Polar Cocktail' is the Oak Bar's newest celebrity-themed drink, directly referencing Mel Gibson's recently-publicized rants at his ex.

The drink consists of Van Gogh vodka, Bols Genever gin, club soda, vermouth and cocktail onion juice. Sounds like a The Mel Gibson 'Bi-Polar Cocktail' sure sounds appropriate to me -- that's a pretty insane variety of liquor in one drink, not to mention the combination of vodka and gin.

Implications - Modern culture's incessant fascination with celebrities has a direct impact on consumerism. In the wake of headline-making pop cultural events, such as breakdowns, deaths and marriages, companies that incorporate these events into consumable goods generate public and media buzz that is sure to make a profit.
