5-Hour Energy has joined Maxim Magazine in challenging readers to take the next step to maximizing energy and focus at the office, gym, lecture hall and every where else an extra boost is needed.
Together the Maxim and 5-Hour Energy duo will pit canned energy drinks against the 5-Hour Energy shot in the Energy Drink Showdown. The faceoff lets readers draw their own conclusions as to why 3.2 million people choose 5-Hour Energy shots every week.
The Maxim audience is of the competitive nature, and to keep with the Showdown theme readers can become contenders and battle it out in the newest 5-Hour Energy challenges and win prizes, including 5-Hour Energy swag and even a year's supply of 5-Hour Energy shots.
The first challenge is the 5-Hour 100m Dash which lets visitors control the 5-Hour Energy Guy as he sprints to the finish line. Seems simple enough, right? But to break the record times they're going to need an extra boost without the crash that only 5-Hour Energy shots can give them. Snatch a 5-Hour energy shot and he'll be at full-stride, stumble on a sugary canned energy drink and he'll lag behind the competition.
The 5-Hour Scavenger Hunt will take fans through the 5-Hour Energy Web site in search of the special 5-Hour Energy Guy token and hidden codes. With the increased focus and spark of vigor from a 5-Hour Energy shot, this game will test how keen they can be. Be sure to look everywhere, including other places the 5-Hour Energy Guy hangs out like Twitter. Grab an entry form, add in the codes as they are found and a one-year supply of 5-Hour Energy shots could on the way.
The 5-Hour Energy Quiz challenges visitors to know the difference between a canned energy drink, the 5-Hour Energy shot and a ferret. If they can answer all ten questions correctly, they can enter to win more 5-Hour Energy swag and, of course, free energy shots.
