Fan question: What makes 5-hour ENERGY® so good?


It all started in Nevada, Circa 1943

I was working on this project for the government (story for another time). On my return home from work one night, I was driving through the desert, when a massive object lit up the sky. What could only be described as a flying saucer appeared in front of me. Naturally, my first instinct was to run away as fast as I could, but then, a sense of calm washed over me in way I’ve never experienced previously. It was as if, the strange craft was calling me to me. So, I stopped the car to see what it was. Just then, a small human like creature appeared in front of me and introduced himself as Shamuke. Naturally, I was intrigued.

The Secret to 5-hour ENERGY® revealed?

Shamuke claimed to be from the planet Belzar in the 3rd quadrant (I still, to this day, don’t know what that means). He invited me to board his ship. No one has ever invited me to climb aboard a space craft before, and my curiosity got the best of me. So, off I went with him. Turns out, Shamuke was a great guy, surprisingly funny. He really had a sense of humor that’s hard to find in today’s comedy. We discussed many things, but as our conversation turned to technological advances, I asked Shamuke if he knew how to capture solar power in a way humans had not thought of before. I was selfishly curious about this topic to help advance my early development and research. Just as he was about to explain a method for converting solar power into energy, an alarm went off on his ship. Something about a cousin of his was lost and he thinks he finally found him. Either way, it was clear my time with Shamuke was over and I needed to go.

So, there you go. Hope that answers your question. ~RM
