AMP Energy, Truly a Drink for the Chief...
... 'cause only the Chief would be lucky enough to survive such an assault.
I was feeling tired Thursday afternoon, and instead of picking up my usual Fuelocity (go poor man's Gatorade!), I decided to try AMP Energy, the new energy drink that's being advertised everywhere and is endorsed by Microsoft Game Studios and Halo 3.
Well, if it's good enough for the Chief, it's good enough for me, right? Besides, what's the worst that could happen? Apparently a lot. I have never been this sick in a long, long time.
Shortly after chugging the tall can, it certainly hyped me up, but only for about half and hour, then I completely crashed. I could barely stand on my feet, had on and off dizzy spells, and sporadic shakes. It was like having the flu minus the fever.
What pisses me off is that I ended up missing a really great party. Got to the venue and I really wanted to wing it, but after another dizzy spell and nearly falling out of my chair, I knew I needed to go.
Got home and crashed for 11 hours, but only slept about 5. AMP Energy wired up my mind enough to keep me awake, despite the fact that I was exhausted at the exact same time.
And that's the end of my harrowing adventure. From now on, I'm going to leave such dangers to the Spartans and stick to my Fuelocity. AMP Energy is made by Mountain Dew, which in turn is owned by Pepsi, and since this was an absolutely awful experience I am going to email them a formal complaint, and I'm also going to avoid any Pepsi products in the future. The less of my cash they get, the better.
