Default Coor's Disposable Keg = Party Pig?

I'm sorry if this is a dumb idea or a dumb question. I'm just beginning to get into brewing (made first batch of summer ale tonight, went without a hitch =). When I was at my local grocery store I ran into a small plastic keg of Coor's. It looked very similar to the party pigs I've seen online, and I was wondering if anyone's tried converting these into a usable device. I believe it only costs 20$ and might be worth a try! Thanks for the feedback guys!

The cost would be $20 and having to drink coors. Considering that you can get new pigs for less than that, there isn't any reason for anyone to convert one of these.

https://www.partypig.com/order.html $17 for two.

$17 is for shipping only, the pigs are $41+ each.

Edit: Besides, I think he is talking about the 5L mini-keg.

It looks like the tap might screw off. If you're able to find replacement CO2 cartridges, then this set up looks ideal. Here's a link to a picture with instructions.

On the bottom left, you pull the blue ring and screw the co2 cylinder up till it stops. Then you pull donw on the little blue lever to unlock the Lite handle.

Honestly, I don't know. Haven't seen one in the wild. Just saw this on Tech Talk.
