Do you smell what The Rock is cookin’?
More like, will you taste what The Rock is servin’?
Wait. Hold on, hold on!
Okay, no more WWE related puns. We’re not wrestling around with this news. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has announced on Instagram that he will be releasing a new energy drink in March. The full statement can be seen right here:
That video is pretty darn slick. I think the name sticks out and is something that will pop off shelves, just as much as his world famous “pec pops.” Adding in the health element helps too, of course. I am not a huge fan of energy drinks but back when I talked on a podcast every week for two hours, I did indeed keep one nearby to quick down beforehand. That fired me up and got me jacked up ready to talk about wrestling. Since my purchases are usually on the cheap side, a small Red Bull does the trick nowadays on the rare occasion I need wings.
All kidding aside, congrats to The Rock. Let’s be honest. Anything this guy touches turns to gold. Movies, television, tequila, clothing line, etc. Seriously. He could announce a new way to walk, and everybody would buy his instructional DVD on how to freakin’ walk. He could make his own social media platform, and it would get millions of followers in a heartbeat. Heck, something tells me he still hasn’t ruled out a run at politics one day. President Rock? It could happen.
In the meantime, I will know my role and shut my mouth. Until March. Then I will open my mouth and down some brand new ZOA energy drink…
