We would like to thank 5-Hour Energy for providing samples of their product for the May First Friday Happy Hour. If you are not familiar with 5-Hour Energy, it is a two-ounce liquid energy shot that provides hours of elevated alertness, focus and energy that comes in berry, lemon-lime and orange flavors.
We also appreciate the fact that 5-Hour Energy drink maker Living Essentials has a sense of humor. In January, President Clinton was caught napping at a service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem. In response to President Clinton’s napping episode, Living Essentials sent a case of 5-Hour Energy to the former President. We at First Friday would generally rather see the former President sleeping than hear him speaking, but you have to tip your hat to Living Essentials for capitalizing on President Clinton’s nap.
Here is their Press Release on the incident:
Caught Napping – President Clinton’s Dream Speech
Former President Won’t Be Nodding Off Again Anytime Soon
NOVI, MI – Living Essentials, maker of 5-Hour Energy®, sent a case of its popular two-ounce energy shot to President Bill Clinton today, after video surfaced of the former Commander in Chief nodding off during a church ceremony commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Everyone needs help staying awake at times. Even former presidents,” said Living Essentials Director of Corporate Communications Carl Sperber. “5-Hour Energy helps thousands of busy people stay awake, alert and productive every day. We think it will help President Clinton, too.”
In an effort for political correctness during this campaign season, Clinton was sent a split case of equal parts berry, lemon lime and orange flavors of 5-Hour Energy.
