Red Bull is an extremely powerful energy drink, containing taurine and guarine. It's name, contrary to popular belief, is actually derived from famed basketball legend Michael Jordan. It is assumed that their slogan, "Red Bull gives you wings" is to be taken literally as Michael Jordan's (a.k.a. The AIR Man) hangtime was .92 seconds and gave the impression of flight. The name itself did not actually come from the legend, but from his legendary team, the Chicago Bulls. Naturally, the logo for the historic NBA franchise is a red bull, hence the name.
"Red Bull - how else do you think I won all those championships?" -23
