ABC's award-winning entrepreneurial show 'Shark Tank' is the perfect platform for entrepreneurs to not just raise capital for their business and get the priceless guidance of the Sharks to grow their business but also an amazing stage to get free publicity and advertising for their product or service. There have been times when a pitch failed to pique the interest of Sharks but definitely caught the attention of fans and made the product a success despite not getting any investment from the Sharks. There are also other rare times when Sharks are totally bowled over by a pitch and get into intense bidding fights with each other over a product that just doesn't appeal to the fans.

Sadly, Kelly and Ryan Moynihan's pitch for their company Flasky Flowers fell into the latter category. The husband and wife duo from Florida stepped into the tank seeking $50,000 for a 10% stake in their company that creates an all-in-one flower bouquet with a flask. Clad in their wedding attire the Florida-based couple gave a pretty cheeky pitch on how Flasky Flowers can be a lifesaver for brides, grooms or even the guests during the weddings as they can sip on alcohol discretely with their product that looks like a bouquet of flowers! The Sharks were beyond amused and intrigued by the idea and the pitch.

Kelly explained to the Sharks that she got the idea due to her job as a hairstylist. Kelly saw how the brides and bridesmaids struggle to toggle between holding their alcohol glasses in their hands and also posing for photos, so she came up with the idea for Flasky Flowers. Kelly explain that she used her baby's feeding bottle and a funnel to create a prototype. Since then, the couple went all-in into their business. They sold their house, Ryan quit his job and they also invested $60,000 of their own money into the business.

But unfortunately, the couple had to put a pin on their business since one of their seven children needed open-heart surgery. But now the couple is more than ready to give their all to their dream business. The Sharks were impressed by the couple's belief in their business idea and their determination to make it a success. So, Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, and Lori Greiner teamed up and made an offer for $75,000 in exchange for a 30% stake in their company. The Sharks assured that they would help the company take off and become a huge success. Kelly and Ryan accepted the offer and closed the deal with the Sharks.

While the Sharks were sold on Flasky Flowers' innovation and unique idea, fans sadly weren't. Several fans took to Twitter to criticize the product. A fan tweeted, "#sharktank #flaskyflowers is misleading. I don’t think the flowers come with it for $20. And it’s dumb.." Another fan wrote, "7 KIDS AND SELLING WEDDING FLOWERS IN A FLASK WTF IS THIS REALLY WHERE AMERICA IS GOING? #sharktank." "#flaskyflowers might be the stupidest idea I’ve ever seen on #sharktank'," declared a fan. "The boozy flowers are the reason they have 7 kids. #SharkTank," joked a fan. Another fan pointed out, "If you can’t make it through your wedding ceremony without a drink in your hand, you might have a problem. #SharkTank."
