Red Bull Shots Cause Mutiny Within Mutineer

Other Beverage
Red Bull’s New Energy Shot

I’ve drawn a line in the sand, I’ll drink this entire press kit to prove my point…

In case you didn’t know, Mutineer Magazine has an Energyologist, Jeff Dorenbush, and as such he is constantly receiving press samples of crazy energy drink products. While Jeff loves all things energy related, Red Bull is his rosebud. He loves Red Bull with a vengeance, so when Red Bull sent us a futuristic press sample of their new Red Bull energy shots, it was terrible news for him that I had intercepted the package and disappeared into the Pacific Northwest backcountry in the Mutineer RV. I have wireless Internet, a full generator, and enough red bull to keep things running for weeks…the standoff has begun.

Red Bull Press Sample

Five casualties via Alan and Jordan working on the issue 6 content and layout.

I’ve already enjoyed three of the twelve red bull energy shots, and I must say that they are quite delicious. I can’t report on details, because in a Mexican standoff ala “For a Few Dollars More”, Beer Editor JJ Bagley is in possession of the USB thumb drive with all of the info about the energy shots. I envision an ambitious 4-dimensional trade happening, where Jeff gets a portion of the Red Bull samples but has to write about the information on the flash drive, I get to keep the sweet packaging, JJ gets to avoid the situation altogether, and Gary Vaynerchuk gets Mark Sanchez…

    I believe I have located your position. Be prepared for a full on Red Bull cola fueled assault.

    Alan, Would your mother approve of this?

    L O L @ Mark Sanchez. I don’t think Gary V was too happy with that acquisition :P

    Those things look dangerous. You could fry your adrenals in half as many years with this stuff. I don’t know guys. I sure don’t wanna have the caffeine shakes when I turn 40.

    The packaging looks like a futuristic zombie repellent kit. Chalk up one more for Red Bull.

    I’m developing a belt that’ll carry 12 of these things so I’ll have them at all times.

    Alan- easy on the beat down. I feel retaliation may be imminent. Just looking at these rockets makes the hair on my neck stand up.) strikes again.
