Red Striped Bottles - Venezuela

Post Red Striped Bottles - Venezuela 
My friend from Miami, who has a Venezuelan girl, told me about this.
Seems like Hugo Chaves has declared that alcohol is a symbol of capitalism and released a law that obligates every alcoholic beverage to contain a red stripe crossing the label, to show that it is a bad thing (?).

Can't say whether this story is true or not, but I've been looking for these bottles and found on Mercado Livre (Brazilian e-bay) and Mercado Libre Venezuela, but the ones in Brazil are too expensive, and the ones from Venezuela they do not ship outside the country.

Anyone has more info in this?

I stole pictures from Mercado Livre, should that be ok to post, or that's anti-ethic?

Thanks, Torba!
Yes, there they are.
Is that interesting? I already asked my friend to get some for me whenever he goes visit her family again, but I'm having second thoughts about if I want it...

Yes, that's what I'm thinking.
Granted there are people here that like to get their hands in every single little bit different bottle, such as the ones with stickers on another languages... There's even crazy people here who like to collect boxes (Hello, KK! Mr. Green ).
But I was wondering, I kind of want those bottles, if that's the true story. If they're "marked because they're bad and capitalists", it sounds so stupid I want one.

Why would there be any interest in common Absolut bottles with a Red stripe on them ?

Tony, like I said, there are people here collecting bottles with different languages in the sticker. Being from a small country like Venezuela, it makes it rare and unique, even thought the rarity is only on the sticker, not the bottle.
I wouldn't pay that much price for that bottle, but if my friend can get me for a regular bottle price, I'm down to it.
But what I really wanted was to know the true story behind it... We don't have any collector from Venezuela here in AR?

Understood Leo ... if a collector could pick these bottles up at cost , or very near cost then it might be worth having one in your collection.   But if your trying to collect different label and sticker variations of common bottles , I was told that there are more than 200+ variations of common  bottles.
