See the problem with the Shamrock shake is, it needs to be updated to the 21st century to make it popular with the “X” generation— First– lets start with the name “Shamrock shake”– it has potential but has dulled over the years. What it needs is that modern pizazz– you know like— “the Shamrock EXTREME” or “the SUPER ULTRA Shamrock EXPERIENCE” or “the Shamrock BLASTATION” , or to a lesser extent, “New and Improved, 20% bigger, 15% less fat, 100% real juice, 10% more free, extra strength, great new tasting, shamrock shake with extra cleaning power and scrubbing bubbles”– Anyway, you get the idea. Next lets take the shake itself. It was always kind of faded green and tasted really like vanilla (was it just vanilla was green food coloring???– hmmmm??) Thats just not going to cut it in todays kicked up a notch world. (BAM!)– thats an emeril reference for all you food network fans— anyway, make it like ELECTRIC, glow in the dark, explosion green,…….with SPRINKLES—It has to scream at you from across the parking lot– HEY IM FRIGGIN GREEN DAMMIT— And they need to invent a flavor for it that is a 21st century mixture of crazy fruit you never hear of like– Snozberry/nukefruit. Put it in a cup that has scratch n sniff lucky charms marshmellows and their you have it. A NEW St Paddys day Sensation— So if you listening McDonalds– make it the “Pump up the JAMrock shake” and we will all again come running in early march every year. Oh, and teach Hamburgaler to snowboard— thats hip now too– Alec j OUT!
