‘Shark Tank’: Bubbly Blaster duo bags $180,000 deal, but why don't fans want it for their champagne bottles?
Are you planning a party? The Bubbly Blaster offers a fun, less messy way to celebrate with champagne during parties and get-togethers. Entrepreneurs Stason Strong and Bradley Hall pitched their product to Sharks Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner and guest Shark MBL legend Alex Rodriguez in the latest episode.
Shedding light on the product, the official website read, “We’ve come up with a way to spray champagne that makes it even more fun and with less mess,” adding, “The Bubbly Blaster attaches to any champagne bottle, turning it into a long-lasting champers cannon!” The blasters also fit most 375 ml and 1000 ml champagne bottles and cost $99.99.
On the show, Stason and Bradley said they were 50-50 partners and asked for a $120,000 investment for a 20% stake. When Mark Cuban offered to take it with a 25% stake, they asked if Alex and Mark could take it together. Mark and Alex then increased the stake to 30% and obliged with a $180,000 investment. Calls for celebration for the Bubbly Blaster duo, doesn't it?
After cracking the deal, Alex Rodriguez posted on Twitter, "@mcuban & I had the perfect way to celebrate our new partnership with Bubbly Blaster thanks to their awesome product! Can’t wait to get to work with these two energetic guys."

Fans may be thrilled to see the product but not everyone wants to buy it. Why, you ask? Well, it's the cost that's stopping them. "Wait, $100 for that? I like the idea of it but I wouldn't pay $100 for that bubbly thing," one viewer posted. Another said, "$100 dollars?! Mehhh #SharkTank." Not just the cost, the annoying pitch also irked a viewer and he posted, "Am I the only one who can’t get with a product if the one pitching is annoying I’m talking to you Bubbly Boys."

However, some seemed too keen to buy it for their parties. "@BubblyBlaster sounds like the perfect way to celebrate parties. I wanna pre-order rn," one tweet read and another said, "And the 2 sports guys buy into it. Haha that was quick. #SharkTank."
A third said, "I can definitely use the #BubblyBlasters for my upcoming #wedding party!" And a fourth added, "I can see this for the average person, but not at sporting events when winning a championship. Guys like the champagne shower too much haha."
