Boy selling 'ICE COLD BEER' has police called on him in clever 'marketing strategy'
USA Today

quote:

Police were called to check on a young entrepreneur after a new sign for his roadside business made people driving by do a double take.

What they saw: A child on the side of the street with a sign that said "ICE COLD BEER."

What it really was: A clever new "marketing strategy" for his root beer stand, police said.

Police in Brigham City, Utah, say they responded to multiple calls after people reported seeing the young boy apparently selling brews on the side of the road.

However, when officers responded, they discovered the sign actually advertised root beer — it's just the "root" was in tiny font. 




quote:

The child came up with "a twist on a lemonade stand," the department wrote in a now viral Facebook post on Tuesday. "Yep, he’s selling beer ... ROOT BEER, that is. His marketing strategy has resulted in several calls to the BCPD, but apparently it's paid off as business has been good."

Lt. Tony Ferderber told KSTU-TV in Salt Lake City that the department received three calls in two days about the boy's sign.

Speaking with the TV station, the boy, named Seth, said he thought of the "hilarious joke."

"Ice cold beer, because it’s beer, but some people will find it funny because it’s root beer," he told the TV station.

And in the summer heat, business is booming.

"We had to buy another cooler," he told KSTU-TV.

Of course people in Utah call the cops on an ice cold beer stand.

Not one call would be made to authorities in South Louisiana until disgruntled customers realized he misled them with his sign

Only in Utah do you see 4 cops responding to a call about a kid selling beer. Both because people from Utah are so uptight and because I’m guessing Brigham fricking City, Utah has no crime to begin with. Still, good for the kid.

That's was my first thought too. But, probably what happened is the chief or sheriff or whatever political position runs the department got word of it and wanted to get in a nice human interest pic to help with his image and his next campaign.

Surprised they didn't want him to be arrested for selling caffeine

There isn't any caffeine in root beer.

No doubt, was cutting thru Central City New Orleans and saw someone tending bar out of the bed of truck. This wasn't a neighborhood get togehter or family BBQ. People were lined up like he was the ice cream man.
