This commercial really bugs me for several reasons. I don't drink coffee for energy, I drink coffee because I like it; I love to smell freshly brewed coffee when I get up in the morning.  And these slugs, how hard is it to make coffee, really?  But the coup de gras is when the smarmy faced, little snot sits down at the kitchen table and puts his feet up on the table.  I wish I could pull the chair out from under him.

I cannot tolerate their commercials...especially the new one with the guy who stumbles down the stairs to find his 'friend' in the kitchen cabinet...he guzzles and, voila! He is suddenly shaved and dressed..."...let's DO this!"
'Do' what?! Go to work 'fake chippy'? I'd rather see you with a hangover.
Good thing ya don't work for me, '5 hour boy'...come in with 'speedo babbles' and you're 'monkey meat' (I can't stand those kind of peeps!).
Yea, I'm a biiiiiiig coffee fan, too. Love it. It isn't the caffine, either - caffine does nothing for, or to me - but I gotta have my morning coffee (the aroma gets me going).
 
sidenote: MissyDWolf sells boatloads of that '5 hour' stuff...

Is this a replacement for breakfast too? If you eat something besides a doughnut in the morning, you'd have energy.

These 'drinks' don't work at all. On four separate occasions I've taken them, one time even drinking two, no effect whatsoever. Therefore, I call bull-sh*t.

also, who "makes" coffee first thing in the morning (other than my housemate)? most people I know set the timer the night before as they're off to bed, and voila Fresh, HOT coffee just as you're stumbling down the stairs.

We do.
 
We have a coffeemaker with a timer, but Mrs. TK is afraid if we let the coffeemaker sit with water in it overnight, one of our occasional thousand-leggers will crawl in the overflow holes during the night, and wind up getting sucked through the system, giving us extra-protein coffee. Shocked

I hate all these commercials.  They take laziness to a whole new level.  Every time the one comes on where the person is saying how they just don't feel like working out or doing anything, UGH!  Move your lazy butt.  No drink is going to help your lazy self, you will just get fatter.

WinkYou have a wise mate there, TK - she is correct.
We generally do the 'timer thing' - but one must be careful that they are not too tired before setting up the pot. Happened to us just last week. I set up the pot quite late, then, as I always do, got up and got our cups of coffee, just to notice I had left the dishrag in the bottom of the coffee pot, but didn't see it until I had fixed and taken MissyDWolf her coffee and had gone back for my own. About the time I recovered from the gag reflex and poured out that pot, I went back to tell her not to drink it, but it was too late - she thought the odd taste was due to the off-brand coffee I recently bought...I couldn't tell her the real reason.
You never know what will crawl into that pot, overnight - and clear glass, or not - you may not see what else around the house likes your fresh coffee.

New user. I've been stewing over these awful commercials and thankfully others think like I do. First, all the douches in the 5 hr energy who need energy to do mundane activities need to contract gonorrhea and die.

Every time I see one of these damn commercials, I feel sick.  Not because of the idiot actors, or the stupid product, but because of the overall message.  Some people out there have to be listening to the bullsh*t that they are selling on this commercial, and those some people are lazy as f*ck.  The fact that more and more commercials are starting to follow this formula: "Oh [fill in activity] is so hard.  Why do [fill in activity] when you can be completely freaking lazy and use [fill in sh*tty product being touted in the commercial]?  This 5-hour energy crap pisses me off more than most, though.  Seriously, how f*cking hard is it to make a goddamn pot of coffee, you lazy motherf*ckers?!?!  I'm gonna laugh when the majority of the human race turns into a reasonable facsimile of the humans on Wall-E.  I will laugh, and drink a cup of motherf*cking coffee that I easily made by getting up off my ass, moving 20 feet to the kitchen, and pouring liquid and granules in their respective receptacles to make the cup of coffee.

What I can say about this commercial is that it's not as offensive and annoying as the previous ones. But, it's still annoying due to the fact that it's still saying that "You need this to survive!" What our douchey friends fail to realize that one needs nourishment from good ol' fashioned solid foods...no matter how late you are. Do they really think that pure caffiene would help you? What's with this bashing on coffee?! Uh, most people don't drink coffee for energy, they drink because they love the taste and the quality of it.
 
What really bugs me about this ad is that if this man has overslept...he should be refreshed, alert, not dead tired. Unless this schmuck had partied his ass off the night before. Oh and by the way haven't the ad people ever heard of Folger's instant coffee that can be heated in the microwaves?

My theory is that commercials for products like these are aimed at the twentysomething ambitious, naive recent college grad who wants to move up the corporate ladder ASAP.
 
Oh, but they can't give up their college social life just yet! They're not old and boring like the other schlubs in the company. They have to keep partying AND showing up for work looking smarter and fresher than their dusty colleagues.
 
How can they be sleek, sexy and productive? Why, buy these products! The smoothie that gives you all the benefits of fruit without having to >>>gasp!<<< bite into a wet, drippy apple or peel a messy orange. That's the old-fashioned way for the old folks who don't care about their nails or image.
 
So they take a couple drops of Wonder Crack in the morning; have an energy protein bar for lunch; a few bites of Activia as a snack; smoothie for dinner. Then a minute or two of the BowFlex, ShakeWeight or AbRoller before bedtime- you know, the no-sweat workout b/c sweat is messy, and the old-fashioned concept of exercise is SO outdated. Exercise is for the old people who don't know better, SO not with the times Unhappy 
 
Coffee is SO last century.

I'm sure you are correct about age demographic, but since I like coffee and do not need 5-hour energy drink because I overslept because I wake up with a hangover every morning like these people do, I resent having these commercials play as often as they do.  Also, I am a night owl, so I guess I watch a lot of shows that this product targets, and if you follow my thoughts, maybe they aren't the best shows for their commercials.
 
And no offense, if you think the guy in the commercial is "hot," then maybe you should drink a 5-hour energy and get those eyes wide open
LOL

BWest-please note that I was not referring to ALL "twentysomethings," but the naive ones who enter the workforce and think that they automatically have an edge over their seasoned colleagues based on their energy and drive blahblahblah. They think that armed with the latest technology and such, they're that much more efficient.
 
Eventually, they figure out that there are no shortcuts to losing weight or staying awake. Or anything that's nearly as nice as a hot cuppa joe or tea in the morning.

Instead of Viagra, they could just make a smaller iRenew for the male naughty bits.  They could call it pRenew. LOL

I know all about 'em.  I just figured they could use their iRenew bullsh*t to mainstream the ionized metal c*ckring market.  The slogan could be: Renewed bloodflow, balance, and vigor for that certain part of the male anatomy!

  I would never mess with one of those things, myself.  Yikes.  Pinch

They also neglect to mention that, for the price of 3-4 of their precious 5hr energy, they could have made like a month's worth of coffee.

interesting comments..   I'm not a fan of the commercials themselves, but I will say this.  I use 5 Hour Energy on a regular basis & it works.  It works really well.  I'm not a 20-something & don't go out to the bars or show up to work hung over.   I do have job that requires me to travel quite a bit - driving between offices, flying to clients, etc.  It's hectic, & easy to get behind on sleep.  As of about 2 weeks ago, we also have a baby at home, which adds another layer to the sleep deprivation. 
 
I am a regular coffee drinker, like others here, because I like coffee.  I get plenty of caffeine, but even after having a couple cups of coffee, a 5HE will wake me right up.  For me, it's one of the few products that works as advertised - doesn't make me jittery of feel like crap, but it makes me feel normal again..

I'll never try this radioactive mess they call 5 hour energy drink. What's wrong with waking up eating cereal for breakfast or hitting mcdeath and grabbing a breakfast burritto? At least those don't give you 'false energy'. Next time someone calls it 5HE I'm going to slam my head into their pancreas.Angry

So you've never tried 5HE?  My pancreas hurts..  I'm telling you, 5HE works...   Dang, WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY PANCREAS?  I was skeptical at first, but now I use 5HE...this is crazy...how can I even tell that it's my pancreas that's hurting & not something else?  It seems like an oddly specific pain....anyway, I use it all the time & it works.  I'm a believer.
 
BTW, last I checked, there's no caffeine in a McDogNuggets breakfast burrito.  There is a difference between nutrition & a stimulant.  Ever see someone whacked out on meth?  They're full of energy & looked like skin stretched over a skeleton..
