US: Redux Beverages to launch Idiocracy film energy drink
Redux Beverages has announced an addition to its line of energy drinks based on the fictional drink from the cult film Idiocracy.
The company said today (27 November) that it has partnered with 20th Century Fox Films and OMNI Consumer Products to market the bright green drink, called Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator, from the Mike Judge movie Idiocracy.
Brawndo is a lemon-lime beverage containing 200mg of caffeine, electrolytes, inositol and guarana, the company said.
Redux founder Jamey Kirby said: "Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator is a perfect fit for the Redux brand of products which stand for quality and attitude. With Brawndo we have a product that we already know people want, and even those who don't know the movie will easily fall for its great taste and superior energising attributes."
Brawndo will be available in a yellow, 16 oz aluminium can citing the catchphrase from the movie: "It's got what plants crave!" and will roll out across the US in December.
