Bill Black Reveals the Secret of the MTV Pineapple Express Fake Weed Smoke-Out Parody at the 2008 MTV Awards
(and answers the question "What's that stuff on film in the movie Pineapple Express")
International Oddities non-tobacco legal bud smoking products have found their way into so many Hollywood movies that it's no wonder our line ended up being used throughout the movie Pineapple Express. One would therefore conclude that the "fake weed" (as star Seth Rogen called it) used onstage at the 2008 MTV music awards was the same as that used in scene after scene of the movie, but this is only a half-truth.
Let us explain - While International Oddities products are the missing link in the question, "What were you guys blazing up with throughout the movie, Pineapple Express?", the smoking material in the baggie held up onstage at the MTV awards was apparently provided directly from MTV itself, was a poor fabrication, and was apparently not smokeable at all. The stuff smoked onstage in the cigarette, however, was International Oddities product taken from the actual material used in the movie.
Additionally, it was very kind of Seth Rogen to reveal in an interview that International Oddities products were used in nearly every scene of the movie. The International Oddities smoking line is so unique and innovative, that sometimes we in the company forget the initial shock the public express when they first learn of our legal bud smokes. Our customer reactions are quite similar to the amazement expressed by the stars in the front rows of the MTV music awards (Robert Downey Jr., Will Smith, Rhiana, Chris Brown, Anne Hathaway) during the fake weed stunt as the remarkable aroma of International Oddities product blew into the audience.
Ironically, the International Oddities product line is not a prop at all, nor is it "fake weed", but the “RYO (roll your own) legal bud hybrids” are the brainchild of the International Oddities staff itself. At a recent trade show, industry insiders shared their opinion that the pleasurable smoking line offered by International Oddities, which consists of dozens of buds such as Krypto and Panama Gold Bud, represents the future of smoking in America. These high-grade smokes can be found in fine smoke shops nationwide, or purchased directly from InternationalOddities.com.
We look forward to the day when people will accept our products as the 25-year overnight success that they are, rather than looking down their noses while passing judgment on that which they do not understand. Until that time, we are content at being the best-kept secret in the entire smoking industry and a favorite to the underground elite.
