5-Hour Energy, iChill . . . what else can we get in “shot” form?

5-Hour Energy

I’ve already posted about the battle in the energy shot market (5-Hour Energy, 6-Hour Power, etc.). Now it has been brought to my attention that a new “shot” is on the market – iChill.


iChill is described as “the world’s first relaxation shot.” From the iChill website:

In a world full of energy boosters, iChill stands alone as the world’s first relaxation shot. The proprietary blend of Melatonin, Valerian Root, Rose Hips and B Vitamins helps calm the body and mind at the end of a stressful day.

It’s got no sugars, no carbs and no calories. So there’s no need to worry. Chill out with an iChill.

So this discovery has my head spinning with possibilities. Will there soon be a “shot” counter at 7-11 with “shot” solutions for every task or normal life? I’m going to throw out a┬ácouple suggestions:


iPee is the world’s first urine-enhancement shot. Tired of feeling like #2 because you can’t go #1? Just take a shot of iPee and you’ll be releasing millions of harmful toxins from your bladder in minutes

Ingredients: Water


iBreathe is the world’s first inhalation-enhancement shot. Feel like you aren’t getting enough oxygen to your lungs? Just take a shot of iBreathe and you’ll receive an extra boost of air to your lungs in seconds.

Ingredients: None. The iBreathe bottle has a hole in the bottom, so upon opening the consumer is merely sucking air.

The possibilities are endless.

5-hour Energy. . . 7 minute abs?


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?”
