Brawndo is real drink?

100%

Me and a couple of other dudes on a medicinal marijuana out there might be the only ones interested in this story, but for anyone who dug the shit out of last year's IDIOCRACY (many of you may not even have heard of the Mike Judge-directed film because Fox dumped it like that shit I took this morning -- my review HERE), this story is about as "movie geek-y" as they get...and that's probably why it fascinates me so much! (if this is a real drink, I'm buying it!!)

So a couple of websites (see sources above) reported earlier this week that despite Fox dumping the crap out of IDIOCRACY in theaters last year, they just decided to release a "thirst mutilating" drink called "Brawndo", which is the futuristic drink that is a major part of IDIOCRACY's plotline. Harumph. Okay, just so we all understand this well: the studio dumps the film, but a year later, decides to produce and market a drink from said movie?? Make sense to anyone?

And then yesterday this blog reported that there were two companies listed as the ones producing the drink on the website, Redux Beverages, the very same company that released a drink called "Cocaine" most recently and were promptly asked to change their name (which they subsequently switched to "No Name") and the Omni Consumer Products company (OCP)...YES, the very same company from Fox's own futuristic ROBOCOP film. WTF? Fox has even created a real-looking press site for the company HERE. A diligent fan also found the trademark filing of the drink by both companies HERE.

So what does this all mean? Well, either Fox is preparing to re-launch the movie in a dual-action special-ass-edition of the DVD and have suddenly decided to throw some dollars behind it, OR this is their way of cashing in on the film's cult-ish popularity early on -- or better yet, trying to "egg on" the film's popularity themselves. Will it work? Not sure but if anyone can go to the official BRAWNDO BUY SITE and purchase themselves a 24-pack of "Brawndo" (it's got electrolytes!!), and get them shipped to them before Christmas, please email me and let me know what you receive, and if in fact, this is a legitimate drink or just a small part of a bigger marketing campaign or whatever else shit it may be. And like I said earlier, if it turns that this really is a drink, I'm buying it!!

Oh and for anyone who has no idea what this drink is all about, check out this HILARIOUS commercial for the drink below and if you enjoy it, be sure to check yourself into IDIOCRACY on DVD and tell your friends.

That commercial was hysterical, just flat-out awesome. But who knows if the drink is actually any good...

Why this and not Pepsi Perfect from BTTF or even Cadre Cola from Running Man- "It hits the spot!"

Electrolytes are what plants crave.

This is definitely an interesting development. I wanna crush a human skull AND have sex with a tractor trailer, and if I drink this I won't even have to! Fuck yeah!

Now if only they had an endorsement from President Camacho, that would be the icing on the cake right there. Now if they could just come up with adds for Butt Fuckers and Car Jr.'s EXTRA BIG-ASS FRIES! I'll be happy.

I don't know whether the drink's any good, but that commercial's hilarious! "It's like having sex with a tractor trailer!" Hot DAMN, I've always wanted to know what that feels like!

Why is it that Fox is the most retarded company in the movie business today?! Dumping Idiocracy with no advertising behind it was, to be ironic, Idiotic! Bought the flick the day it was released on DVD, love the shit out of it! Fox puts out some REAL shit.. and then classic fare like this flick get the shaft!

If i see this product in stores, i'll def pick it up, cant say im going to order it online though!

I'll try it as soon as it hits the stores. Hell, the entertaining commercial itself (though already done before) is reason enough to. One of the correspondents on G4TV drank some and didn't appear to enjoy it that much. I'm a fan of many different energy drinks, so I'm sure my opinion will differ from his.
