    Wink Kyle Petty's rant about a certain sports drink

    Oh Wow,
    I guess Pepsi should have asked him first.

    It's the death touch of Peter Arnell and his rebranding craziness

    If by everyone you mean people like yourself then yes .

    I think it needed an update..and I think it was suitable..the marketing is a little off kilter but its catching on.

    Correct. Unlike most contract from today, Petty has been around long enough to have a "lifetime" deal with Coca-Cola. Even though his days with the Mello Yello car were over 20 years ago, he still gets paid.

    The worst part is, they didn't change the name really its still "Gatorade", but yea the commercials where everyone is saying how they are G and crap, is so annoying, like gatorade is gangsta now or something.
    They could just have an orange lightning bolt on the bottle and you know what you are drinking, but adding a big G? stupid and corny.
    That would be like coke, getting rid of the coca-cola script or even the ribbon, and just using a big C, just stupid.
    Pepsi is just clueless, they had 2 iconic logo's the pepsi globe and gatorade's lightning bolt and found a way to screw both of them up.
