Now, that's what I call a quote.

warning....if you decide to fix the second link and take a look....there's audio, that i must say, though it rudely interupted some hendrix playing on my speakers, went well with the site....well....for a half a minute at least.

looks to me like the rev was drinkin' some of that pimp juice to get even noticed for something like this......ya' know...whatever you think people are really taking to you for, that's kinda like your juice. Whatever you using to win with right now, that's your juice--that's your pimp juice, so keep pimping."

yo go rev

But how does it taste with gin?

Can't wait for pimp to be used correctly one day. Was it around '98 that it became a "fad" word. See moms saying my toddler is a "pimp" now. Sure this is just product, and like it describes advertisements perfectly these days, pimp'in the products. But please don't call a child a pimp when today's society thinks pimps are criminals. They'll go work for some major advertising firm when they grow up.

Pimp Juice is a healthy, non-carbonated energy drink possessing a tropical berry flavor.  Pimp Juice’s artificial coloring gives it a smooth neon green glow, while its 10 % apple juice content adds a natural sweetness to its taste.  Providing 100% of the body’s needed vitamin C, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12, Pimp Juice works to increase the drinker’s energy supply. In addition, an 8 oz serving of pimp juice contains Taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid that aids the body in its absorption of nutrients needed for optimal mental and physical performance.  Pimp Juice acquires its boost from Guarana, an all-natural tropical ingredient.  When roasted, its seeds produce stimulating effects similar to caffeine.  Pimp Juice also includes 250 mg of D-Ribose and approximately 140 calories per serving.

Pimp Juice represents the new and improved energy drink for today’s active and health conscious consumer.  The use of caffeine has allowed the competition to adequately address the energy needs of their consumers.  However, Pimp Juice employs Guarana to match this feature and goes a step further to provide the nutrients needed to maintain this high level of function.  Furthermore, Pimp Juice is non-carbonated which makes it ideal for demanding sports and intense workouts.

Yaright. Know what's stimulating about guarana? Caffeine.

Is it alcoholic? Doesn't sound like it from the above.

But it does sound damn stupid.

Ideal for demanding sports and intense workouts? Like beating up ho's and stomping cheap bastards who don't pay for getting their sex on?

Anyway, Pimp Juice sounds like about the last thing I would ever want to drink. I just wonder how Nelly got them to vollunteer to be juiced, I hear that can leave a rash.

Pimp Juice and a Posse Pop. home of the infamous slogan, "Eat + Read + Learn = Word." ( Isn't that three words? )

Yeaaaaahhh, Dog. I'm keepin' it REAL.

Finally, a sports drink I can consume to replace vital nutrients while riding my new pimpcycle in the Tour de Inglewood.

There is truly no need for traditional advertising outlets anymore. Metafilter: a hip, edgy advertainment a day.

I can not believe that nobody has made a Pimpsi Blue joke yet...

(and why didn't Nelly package his Pimp Juice in miniature malt .40 bottles? The ouroborosian inversion of the past "outrage" over alcopops would have caused a memetic implosion, reducing Nelly's marketing team to an ultra-dense singularity of neon-green, apple juice flavored hype and bullshit. We can dream, though.

*giggle* I nearly fell out at the second link when the music started.

Anyway, I think its just a fine example of target and product marketing. Movies get drinks and cereals and happy meal toys. Why not a beverage for a song? How about a little pimp kids meal? Comes with one of 6 pimp action figures all with "bitch slap action"!

*shakes head and walks away*
