Drinking Red Bull in China can often be quite a brutal experience

Given the choice, would you prefer that Red Bull gave you wings or a kick in the head? In the energy's Chinese ad campaign, they're trying the latter, but I'm not sure how well that's going to work. The guy in the ad above doesn't look like he's enjoying himself. Nor does this girl, or this androgyne. They don't seem terribly energized either, which is what I thought the entire point of drinking Red Bull was. It could be that these are in fact cans of whoop-ass, which might also explain why they're so small. Whatever the case, this campaign does look like a rip-off of this coffee ad from Argentina. Via Ads of the World.
