'puff' the rubber chicken bong squeaks when you smoke it

with a name like ‘puff the squeaky chicken’, studio MSCHF’s latest project doesn’t need much introduction. what began as an impromptu experiment using a classic rubber dog toy has developed into a like-for-like, custom-made bong. and the best part? the chicken actually squeaks when you smoke it.

the idea initially occurred to MSCHF during a one-day hackathon, when they fashioned a bong from a rubber chicken dog toy, some PVC pipe and a hollowed-out carrot. committing to the concept, they further developed the prototype to create the final design by replicating the chicken from molded silicone and replacing the carrot with proper glass smoking hardware.

puff is conveniently sized to hold and the head rotates for easier access to the mouth

 

 

studio MSCHF has also preserved the iconically torturous rubber chicken squeak, which is triggered by the passage of air whenever a user hits the bong. puff is formed with a matte finish and smooth curves, making it a pleasure to hold and use. other details include the chicken’s perpetually astonished open mouth and lazily bloodshot eyes. it’s 100% food-grade silicone construction means that it is dishwasher safe – a major advantage for a smoking implement.

the rubber chicken has cemented itself as a symbol of hilarity in the online lexicon of video and audio production, beloved of humans and canines alike. puff breathes new life into this form, pushing the envelope on what a smoking device can be, combining function and entertainment. as many in the US strive for marijuana legalization and this burgeoning product category continues to open up, studio MSCHF intends to continue to push product design towards the fun and unexpected.

while hilarious on its own, a chorus of chicken squeaks is where the product becomes truly bizarre

puff is designed for use as a dry pipe, though it can function as a water pipe if the user desires
