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.
