Gatorade recently released a series of hidden-camera commercials featuring Peyton Manning and Cam Newton preventing convenience store customers from buying Gatorade because they aren’t sweating. The new commercials drive home the point that Gatorade is “created to help replace what you sweat out”—not just to provide a tasty drink for consumption at any time.
Our favorite commercial shows Manning as the convenience store manager making a customer practice yoga poses so she can “get some back sweat going” and earn her Gatorade.
We agree with Gatorade’s sentiment that you should “sweat it to get it”—because the sodium, potassium, carbs and calories in Gatorade are meant to help hard-working athletes stay hydrated and replenish the electrolytes they lose when they perspire.
