The only commercial I have seen lately here in Mexico is the commercial of America Soccer Team's Energy Drink... LOL, a machine that "absorbes" the "energy" of the America soccer team players and puts the energy in the energy drink can :rolleyes:

I don't know if I want to respond to this or not. It seems when someone makes a joke/comment about a commercial you come back and go after the Jugular.

I gotta tell ya, if you haven't seen an advertisement for RB you must not watch TV at all. Have you ever seen the RB gives you wings cartoon commercials? What about FullThrottle, Did you not watch the Superbowl, the yearly mega budget commercial extravaganza? Full throttle was all over the Superbowl. As far as XS, until some MLM guy wants to step out on a limb and throw some marketing bucks towards this drink I don't think you will see too much from them.
Monster does a lot of print ads but not much on TV.

Wow! You're fan of the America Soccer Team? America has the fame of being the most loved team, but also the most hated of all the soccer teams, but it's OK! don't worry, there's a lot of America Soccer Club fans, in fact, my brother is America Soccer Team fan like you... and I'm not, but I respect his support to America... It's great to know that there's a lot of fans in U.S. like you supporting the mexican soccer... GOL! :D

Like Greg I'm a tad puzzled by this topic. Full Throttle was huge at the Superbowl, those awefull Red Bull commericals seem to be on all the time as well. I have seen some scattered Rockstar, and Monster ads as well. Pepsi has also dumped a huge amount of ad money on MDX just as Coke has done with VAULT (not really an energy drink I know).

I would venture that there is more advertising for e-drinks these days than for instance lemon-lime sodas.

thats funny as I was reading this post , a red bull commerical was on tv lol! I heard radio commericals for red bull dating back to 3 or 4 years ago.
