    According to Paul Sr. if we don't start buying OCC energy drinks, he will let Mikey loose on our board. LMAO

    I have not seen any OCC energy drinks or merchandise in my travels. I would dig a black OCC t-shirt.

    Orange Country Choppers has one the most popular cable shows named American Choppers. It is about a father and son who have designed and built the most awesome theme bikes.

    The father, Paul Sr. has a very short fuse and blows up at his sons for the stupidest things. It's a real kick to see Paul Sr. try and chew out Paul Jr. and his younger brother Mikey. LOL By the way Mikey is the shop clown and appears to just hang around.

    The show has a cult following. LOL

    Oh! I got it!

    I saw that show once, in the episode I saw, they were designing a Snap-On bike for an event. I saw it on a Discovery Networks channel called People & Arts...

    I know now who are the OC Choppers!

    People & Arts

    Another example of overexposure. I love OCC and its Brand.....that being being choppers. Why in the world do these guys need to get into energy drinks. For that matter, why does Steven Seagal, Deon Sanders, Jerry Rice, etc. All they are doing is selling a name. The drinks will spike early and fall flat just as quick.
    Example: Stallone brought out his on sports nutrition line. It was marketed with glossy photos of "Sly" with his shirt off and working out. Well he did get some good initial sales but people soon found out there was more hype than substance in his products. He soon will be closing shop.

    Why....why not?

    The more cash you have the more you want to make.
    These successful people are given large amounts of cash for little or no work besides some promotion work.

    In exchange these "stars" get more play money to lavish on themselves or even donate to charity.

    It's all cash.

    Although it's a sport drink, we have to mention Powerade LeBron James' FLAVA23...

    I understand that making money is important. The problem I have is that celebrities come into a new arena to which they know little or nothing about and essentially "water down " the whole category.
    They use their name or face to make money instead of doing solid research to come up with a better product. It hurts the category as a whole.
    Suppose I start to build choppers just like the ones that OCC builds. Same Look, Same engine, Same schemes/themes. These guys would be all over me for copying them instead of coming up with my own idea.
    If you look at all of these celebrity energy drinks they are all the same. A close knock off of Red Bull manufactured and packaged by some contract filler and probably sent DSD.All they do is cash checks.
