For every 15,000 Foursquare check-ins to U.S. 7-Eleven stores after the event, fans can unlock a YouTube video of the intercepts, as well as a special coupon for MiO ENERGY on the MiO Facebook page. "Energy is a major issue facing our nation. I need to let Americans know where I stand on this vital issue. Nobody cares more about the USA than me," said Friedlander. "What better way to do that than to hang out at 7-Eleven and talk with real people and throw my support to MiO ENERGY. And I know what I'm talking about. I have two Ph.D.'s in Energy and three Ph.D.'s in beverages. I've dedicated my entire life to studying energy drinks." Building upon the successful launch of MiO last year, MiO ENERGY, a brand new plank in the brand's platform, is a portable liquid water enhancer with an added energy benefit. With 60 mg caffeine per eight fluid ounce serving –about the same amount as a six-ounce cup of coffee– each MiO ENERGY bottle offers multiple servings right in the palm of your hand.
