Consumers can enter to win a personalized Cameo video roast from iconic comedians poking fun at the worst gift they've received in new campaign from Drizly

BOSTON, Dec. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Not all gifts are created equal… and some shouldn't be given at all. Drizly, an Uber Company (NYSE:UBER) and a leading beverage alcohol e-commerce shop, is inspiring better gift-giving this holiday season by humorously roasting some of the worst gifts ever received in a new campaign sponsored by Diageo, the global leader in beverage alcohol.


Teaming up with comedians and epic roasters Jenny Slate, Joel McHale and Loni Love, Drizly has launched a social media campaign asking fans to share the worst holiday gift they've ever received. Cleaning supplies? Socks for the fifth year in a row? The worse, the better.

From now through December 12th, fans can follow Drizly on Instagram and submit the worst gift they've ever got for the holidays in the comments of Drizly's Instagram posts with Slate, McHale or Love. Nine lucky winners will receive a personalized Cameo video from one of the comedians roasting that terrible gift.

"Bad gifts make us feel bad, like that time someone told me a piece of advice was my holiday gift… That's why I'm partnering with Drizly to roast those all-time terrible gifts and make sure you get the gift of great drinks instead this year," said Jenny Slate.

"Sometimes people give terrible gifts - looking at you, Grandma. So this year, I'm teaming up with Drizly to roast some of the worst holiday gifts ever and remind folks that you can never go wrong by gifting someone their favorite drink," said Joel McHale.

"You know I'm still salty about getting a fake designer chain as a gift last year. Nobody wants a wack gift, so I'm here with Drizly to call out those gifts that should have stayed on the shelf and encourage some better gift-giving this holiday season with the perfect drink," said Emmy-Award Winner Loni Love.

With 84% of respondents from Drizly's recent survey* stating they enjoy receiving alcohol as a gift, Drizly is the best way to shop one of the widest selections of drinks to find the perfect gift.

And for those who need a little extra help avoiding the gifter Hall of Shame this year, Drizly shoppers can browse and buy unroastable gift ideas, like Diageo's premium spirits, and get personalized recommendations through Drizly's guided gift shopping experience. Even better, on Drizly, you can ship a gift order across the country, schedule a gift delivery up to two weeks in advance from a local retailer, or get it delivered on-demand for last minute gifting.

Drizly shoppers can also get $10 off or free delivery using promo code ROASTYTOASY** on their next delivery, now through December 29, so this holiday season it's easier than ever to avoid getting roasted – and give a never-miss gift instead.

To enter for a chance to win personalized roast videos from Slate, McHale or Love, fans can head to Drizly's Instagram now to comment on the Roast Reels with the worst gift they've ever received.
