Skyler_Kurgan: I do the same thing with beer.
redcapmilk: In my early 20s my roommates and I threw a party on our rooftop in Manhattan. I’m thinking this party might be getting out of hand when monster reps showed up wanting to drop off cases of the stuff. It was new and everyone thought it was malt liqour. Disappointment all around. 99% was still sitting there in the morning.
do-call-me-papi: Well we can’t have our heroes
flopping around with kidney disease.
Kod_Rick: I saw Ken Roczen (Motocross) and his girlfriend pour water into an empty Red Bull can after winning a race.
strategictime: Monster really made huge improvements when they came out with that white can variety that tastes a lot like Fresca, also they’re orange one is awesome too. Can’t stand the taste of their original flavors.
CharlatanAlley: That is bad. When I played gigs all week I would have a scotch glass with ice and ginger ale to stop people buying me more drinks. Worked for me. Now they promote bad drinking choices. Wtf
Yorkeworshipper: I was sooooooooooooo fucking confused, I thought they were talking about the audio company, Monster Cable.
plainoldasshole: I have a family member who worked with some touring bands for a number of years. He got me some VIP Warped Tour tickets one year so I got to go backstage with him and on the tour busses with his band mate friends and shit. Their tour bus had tons of cans of Monster everywhere and so I was like, “Man how can you guys drink so much of that garbage?” And so they showed me that it was actually water. This particular band was not too happy about being asked to drink it onstage and to essentially lie to their fans and promote a product they didn’t support, so they just never drank any of it while in front of people.
chucklesthe2nd: I used to be overweight (not ridiculously so but I was definitely on the border of obesity bmi wise.) After losing ~60lbs due to healthy eating, it is *insane* seeing how blind people are to what’s healthy and what isn’t. It doesn’t matter how overweight you are, if you’re a regular soda/energy drink-drinker, if you suddenly start drinking exclusively water, you will lose weight and improve your health. Period.
It sickens me seeing how these companies sponsor the world’s most bleeding-edge athletes, only to have those athletes who promote their crap not drink it because they know how bad it is for you.
Pipsquik: I put my wine in cans of cola to avoid people knowing I’m an alcoholic
OantiNtheistE: That shit is poison.
OhDeerLordMan: Like a reverse It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
pycrust19: I can confirm this. Two years ago my friends and I managed to sneak behind stage at Warped tour without passes. We walked up the ramp where the band’s come to the stage and watched before being asked to leave by the event security. But before we left we swiped a couple monster cans in pallets near the ramp. It was water, even said right on the can. I still have the empty in remembrance of that epic day.
Qwerty177: Y tho
Kajimishima2: Used to be a big fan of monster products, and iirc the water cans were listed on a product guide for rare/retired drinks.
reddorickt: Meanwhile Trey Parker and Matt Stone go to the Oscars on acid and wearing dresses
Abell379: “Cans” of water. Oh yeah, I just drink out of my jerry can, there you go.
