Super Freak -- Jones Soda Guy

So I am holding down the Front Desk this afternoon (for those that don't know what that's all about.... everybody (includin' me) runs the reception area and answers the B-heard Hotline several times a month. It's keeps us all in touch and it's the right thing to do ya'know?) Anyway this dude (Gene) comes in from Jones Soda....and he is all fired up cuz' were addin' it to the lineup (bottles, and in a way ya' can't even imagine yet :) !!!)...so I never met Gene b4 but he is one of these 'bowl ya over' kinda guys (aka a Super Freak)....but I love'it

He starts talkin' to me about some Amino Acid that does wonders (weird stuff) and I had to get it on tape...so I asked to interview him and he was all game. Now, this'll look like an ad cuz' in the middle of it all Stephanie walks through (she can be a little shy sometimes)and I see Gene lookin' at her, so I swing over...and I swear it looks rehearsed (but it's not!!!)...you decide!

I like Digby's cameo.

Will the labels have special Biggby pictures on them? I think you can order them that way =)

You should have asked Gene about the water balloon that was heaved at him by the President of our Company!

I was lucky enough to talk with Gene on his way out of Biggby's main office and the video does not do him justice in the amount of passion he has for Jones Soda.

If only we could figure out how to tap into that type of "Alternative Energy"!! ;v}

So...Gaba? I hadn't heard of it, so it might as well have been made up, and I wouldn't have known the difference, well, except for Google...

A story on Gaba and Jones Soda.

And, yeah, the story on Gene getting ambushed by Michael is FUNNY--though certainly better related on camera than in text...

I'm so bummed to have missed Gene! He is always this energetic everytime he stops by! I was just asking someone in the office where he has been. Great Interview! Cathy

It would look rehearsed if I hadn't watched the other random in-store Biggby videos. Stephanie looks like a commercial.. except when you ask her what's the deal w/ the Jones Soda & she's at first like "what"... & the Jones Soda guy is super cool during his interview!! :) :)
