Christmas is a fairly commercialized holiday. But to some, it's still
not commercial enough. Cue Alex Blagg, the online "strategenius" behind BazillionHits.biz. The faux new media consultant
can't fathom why no one's invented an eggnog energy drink. Seriously,
people, it's 2010. "Christmas can be pretty exhausting," Blagg explains on his blog
"Which is why I can't believe yet another holiday season is upon us and
STILL no one has thought to create Egg Nog Energy Drinks. I think
there's a huge missed market opportunity here."
Getting the ball
rolling, Blagg offers 15 branding ideas for the egg nog energy drink of
the future. The list includes "Eggstreme Nog," "NogMonster," "Four
Lokristmas," "Yule Fuel" and "O TannenBomb." For the complete list, see here
Remarkably, the Wire did a little digging and we discovered that an eggnog energy drink actually
exists. Behold, Nutrament's eggnog-flavored energy and nutrition drink
the product description makes clear, Nutrament has a "milk shake taste"
and "keeps you going strong." By the looks of the 12-ounce can, it
probably makes for a good stocking stuffer too!
