VPX/Bang Energy Has The Worst Social Media/Marketing Team

I saw recently that the company VPX is looking for a new marketing/social media individual to run their Facebook and Instagram page.

I’d love to apply, but given my lack of credentials, I have nothing to show for what I could do, but what I do know is that I’d do better than whoever in the hell is in charge of everything with their marketing right now.

All the @bangenergy page does is post short clips of their models dancing around and shit with Bang energy drinks. What in the goddamn fuck? That’s all it is, without context.

Some dumbass would likely shout, “It’s working!” because the popularity of Bang has skyrocketed, at least since I started drinking it back in May 2014. I’m a huge VPX supporter, but the marketing team needs work. Not only should you show off the energy drink, but talk about what it does. It’s zero grams of sugar, so it prevents a potential crash, so why not do some humorous videos featuring an individual on the verge of passing out before sipping on some Bang? That’s a lot better than having some slut dance around with some random energy drink can.

It’s all hogwash.

Loving the drinks, though. Each and every single flavor. I’m a fanatic. I’d call myself the ultimate Bang energy drink addict, but there’s one guy who has me beat on that front, and I’m cool with that. I guess I’ll be the Daniel Cormier to his Jon “Bones’ Jones.

Why I Love BANG Energy Drinks

VPX Sports is a supplement company based out of Florida. In December 2009, while my cousin was living in Ohio, we were playing NBA 2K10 for the Xbox 360 on Xbox Live. At the time, his sister was in nursing school. My cousin explained to me how his sister was drinking these strong, highly caffeinated energy drinks called “Redline” and that they were helping her kick ass at whatever task was in her way.

I was intrigued. 2009 was the year I delved into caffeine and energy drinks. In March 2009, I drank my first ever energy drink. An Amp. Soon I delved into the blue Monster Lo Carb energy drinks and never looked back. I was in an ‘online‘ relationship with a girl from another state (we talked for a couple years before it fell apart). I was also a senior in high school (graduated in June 2009). We stayed up late every night, including school nights, talking. Early days called for caffeine.

By that December, I simply enjoyed finding new energy drinks and trying them out. My cousin in Ohio did, too. He came to visit for Christmas for Christmas and New Years, and we went on many hunts trying to find new energy drinks to try.

One night, I decided we’d go to Walmart and I’d try to find Redline. Long story short, I found it, tried it the next day and I loved it. The energy rush was unreal. I worked out, cleaned up my house and felt invincible. I picked up two four-packs in January 2010 from Rite Aid and loved those, too.

I didn’t drink any for a while, but that’s only because I slipped back into my Monster Lo Carb routine. By September 2010, I tried Redline again, but VPX — the makers — had reformulated the product. Irresponsible idiots neglected their health and the warning label on the bottle and misused it, cried about it on the internet and I reckon VPX had to take action in order to avoid any more bullshit.

I wasn’t upset. It was “whatever” to me. I still enjoyed a Redline occasionally over the next four years after 2010, but it wasn’t the amazing drink it once was.

In May 2014, after watching a YouTube video where a guy ran around with an energy drink called, “BANG” and asked random women at some unspecified beach if they wanted to “bang”, I ordered a case of VPX BANG energy drinks. I knew they were from the makers of Redline, and I also knew that they contained 300mg of caffeine, its own patented creatine blend, BCAAs, CoQ10, glutamine, a little bit of vitamin B12 and light electrolytes.

I fell in love with the stuff.

I love caffeine in any form. Caffeine pills, coffee, energy drinks (0cal energy drinks). I use it responsibly within the self-tested tolerance levels of my body.

I love having a BANG energy drink with my first meal of the day (usually brunch). It’s delicious and helps power up my meal with its BCAAs. The caffeine intake is abated due to the food being consumed, and I’d theorize that the cortisol spike from the caffeine isn’t nearly as high as what it typically would be. A BANG energy drink consumed after a meal featuring scrambled eggs cooked in coconut oil, bacon the side with a honey biscuit and a handful of prunes? I feel phenomenal.

I can’t empathize enough how damn good BANG energy is.I’m not affiliated with VPX in any way. I wish I were; I’d love to be a rep for the company. However, I’m not a bodybuilder nor am I a female fitness model. I support and freely advertise the drink because it’s a product I believe in wholeheartedly. I wouldn’t do so if I thought it was trash. I don’t have the desire to back up or support shitty products. However, BANG is an outstanding drink worthy of merit.
