Drinking on the job? :O

I wonder how Mountain Dew's PR people feel about giving Ryan that drink now that they've seen this video. Is any press truly good press?

I could watch Ryan stirring that Vodka-Dew with a pen for hours. Fantastic.

I'm going to assume that you're not American - they use different ingredients there, so their opinion of Mountain Dew is skewed. For instance, here in Canada, the sweetener is real sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup and the drink is non-caffeinated by law.

This was my immediate thought. I live in the UK and I drank a whole bunch of Mountain Dew (regular and the 3 flavours on trial at the time) when I spent a month in the US in 2008. The stuff we have over here, which they call "Mountain Dew Energy" (a name I suspect may be enforced), is nice enough but doesn't even come close to the real thing.

Man, it's just rehashes of the same flavors over and over again. We need a new generation of Mountain Dew!

someone make a gif of that stirring. Ryan's look is more intoxicating than that wodka.

Oh man, a new flavour of Mountain Dew!

Meh :<

Here in Poland MD (and, I'd say, sodas in general) aren't as popular as they are in America, so we get only the original, wonderful and heavenly, yellow Moundaint Dew. On my trip to the States a year ago and this year I was super pumped to try some different flavours of Pepsi's best drink and I was very, very disappointed, because they simply didn't taste good. Actually, they reminded me of really cheap sodas.

I've tasted imported MD with the high fructose corn syrup and it tasted like shit. It was real MD and was bottled.... Canned, in the states.

Hopefully they get more drinks to do another round of drink tests (of the odd energy drinks, sodas & whatnot) as they were always interesting to see on the other mailbag videos.

when Ryan started stirring my mind went to Bond and his face took me to Valentin Zukovsky which I had to look up on IMDB which led me to discover the actor Robbie Coltrane who also plays Hagrid in the potter flicks...*deep breathe*...I will never look at Ryan Davis the same again.

Jeff: refused to see Avatar, hasn't seen any of the Batman movies.

He was probably somewhat justified ignoring the first considering it was only worth seeing for the visuals, and as soon as it left the big screen any worth rapidly dissipated.

Batman, though? Dude...

Chopin Vodka! Goodness that's a bottle and a half. If Chopin drank that he'd never have written any music.

This is the Mountain Dew that Giant Bomb deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

So we'll hunt it. Because it can take it. Because it's not our Mountain Dew. It's a blue fizz, an acid substitute, a Dark Berry™

Bravo. Truly, sirs. Also: Jeff, seriously man. Watch The Dark Knight. Skip Batman Begins if you want, but watch The Dark Knight.

Why didn't you put the Tullamore Dew, into the Mountain Dew, and then you'd have all the Dew you could ever want. Oh yeah, because that would be horrible.

Great marketing Mountain Dew, I will now go out and buy one of these just because I saw it on here. Even if I don't like it, I just have to know what it tastes like and having Batman on the bottle sold me.

How can not have watched the Batman moves, Jeff? At least watch The Dark Knight.

It's an acquired taste. Kind of like coffee or beer; that first one is fucking gross, but after a while it tastes great.

Minor Prometheus spoilers, but it's from the first minute of the movie so whatever.

I'm more of a Livewire or Code Red drinker. I still wish that they still sold Surge. I miss that battery acid green drink with a massive caffeine boost.

I do love the Rasberry Mt.Dew Voltage. Got plenty of that in the fridge. Sadly, I'm all outta vodka.
