Danny DeVito's Limoncello

Back in 2006, a noticeably intoxicated Danny DeVito appeared on The View. He chocked up his inappropriate jokes, slurred speech and unsteady walking to too many shots of the traditional Italian lemon-flavored liqueur known as limoncello. "I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me," he said. Not long after, capitalizing on his drunken display and Italian roots, he launched Danny DeVito's Limoncello. While the drink, made from the zest of lemons in Sorrento, Italy, may be good, the real treats are the scratch-'n'-sniff bottle label and the theme song sung by DeVito himself. The song goes, "Danny DeVito's Limoncello, it's a taste delight from this famous fellow/ It's so very nice, perfect served cold on ice/ The finest summer drink from Italy." And so on.
