5-hour Energy. . . 7 minute abs?

6-hour-power1

Grant and I stopped at Smoothie King the other day for a treat (Grant loves the Gimme-Grape). When I was paying for our smoothies, I saw the display for 6 Hour Power above. I literally started to laugh out loud. You’ve not doubt seen the countless TV ads for 5-hour Energy drink, well it looks like someone tried to “one-up” them with “6” hours of energy. I find this hilarious because it is basically the business model of the hitch-hiking-serial-killer in There’s Something About Mary.

So what happens to the 6 Hour Power folks when someone comes out with a “7 hour” energy drink? Too late, someone has already taken it to the next level with 8-hr Energy . . .stop the madness people.

“Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin’ there, there’s 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?”
