Here’s a new spin on an old fave: The kissing game spin-the-bottle is once again a cultural touchstone. Music’s Twiztid and Insane Clown Posse started the trend last year with their explicit kiss-off anthem ”Spin the Bottle.” In April, the game showed up at a frat party on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Currently, Polaroid and online brokers Web Street Inc. are kissing up to consumers with ads showing teens giving the game a whirl. ”It really [symbolizes] this idea of new independence, people on their own for the first time,” says Polaroid advertising director Chet Harding. Calling it ”safe danger,” Areyougame.com prez Vince Kurr is jumping on the buss with a back-to-school promotion for its electronic spin-the-bottle game. ”You might get a little bit nervous, but there’s nothing about it that’s really actually dangerous.” Mouthwash sold separately.
