For a few years I have seen those auto wrapped cars emblazoned with Red Bull and the larger than life sized can of Red Bull sticking out of the back.
But I never tried a Red Bull…until today.
I was getting in my car at Office Depot when one of the Red Bull cars drives up and out jump these two perky girls with Red Bull paraphenalia on their back. One of them, asked if I wanted a can of Red Bull.
Sure, why not? It was 99 degrees and I needed a pick-me-up.
I came home and drank the can and within minutes I was tired. I thought this was an energy drink. I expected to be alert and full of focus. Not so. I practically slipped into a coma.
I took a long nap and then woke up like I had a hangover.
Red Bull sells youth and energy and a lifestyle filled with adventure.
Maybe if you’re not in the Red Bull demographic, Red Bull’s potency has a reverse effect. I may just take it when I have insomnia. For me, Red Bull was a like a carbonated sleeping pill.
