| CONCEPT : It takes years to become a Jedi at (virgin) Beer Pong so
smart tweens train early with the Milton Bradley ball and cup sensation
setting new trends on twitter searches -  #CUPONK - the game that takes
trick shots to a whol new level. Toy genies at Hasbro have another Monster
success with "CUPONK Monsterosity," the Monsters of Rock themed
dunking game that inspired thousands of videos on YouTube featuring kids
around the world sinking impossible ping pong shots just like MTV's
favorite Jackass Bam Margera.

Lacko Illustration worked with California shop BXC to create the unique
rock gods design used to wrap the limited edition series of artist's cups
which sold out just before Christmas 2010. Each cup features a round of
sound clips which play when the ball is successfully sunk. The rocks riffs
on "Monsterosity" are inspired by the theme wrap and 2 tattoo logo balls
with growls, groans and grinds blasting from the speaker hidden in the
bottom of the twinkling LED battery-operated base. Lacko's horned and
mowhawked monsters have ping pong balls bouncing off their exposed
brains, spiked lizard tongues, skull-shaped drums and dagger pierced
hearts. More than one online review noticed the tattooed lead monster's
striking resemblance to a Black Flag era Henry Rollins.

CUPONK is the perfect fusion of slacker charm and trick shot skateboard
skill. Hasbro marketed the toys on Youtube with Margera challenging their
target audience to upload videos of their best shots. By New Year's Eve,
thousands of kids from Italy, Australia and laundry-strewn living rooms
across the US were posting unboxing reviews, spit takes and ricochet
shots off tables, chairs and mantles.

The game is deceptively simple but highly addictive. Lacko gifted his
"Monsterosity" series to family members at Christmas and managed to
make his mom extremely mad when a slam dunk contest made everyone
late for dinner. Check out all the CUPONK videos at YouTube.com and
collect the latest artist's series at WalMart, Target, K-Mart or online at
Amazon.com
