Gatorade's 'Sweat It to Get It' Prank Features Peyton Manning

This Gatorade prank was set up in a convenience store, featuring a display with a 'Sweat It To Get It' sticker. What people didn't seem to realize is that the "You don't sweat it, you don't get it" sticker wasn't messing around. When people picked up a bottle of Gatorade and headed to the cash, the clerk (Jim Belushi's son, Rob) refused to make a sale, since there was no sweat to be seen.

The cashier asks the shoppers to get into a set of jumping jacks, and when they hesitate, Rob calls for his manager—football QB Peyton Manning. In the presence of a professional athlete, the unsuspecting victims of this prank are pretty quick to start working up a sweat by jumping and jogging so that they can earn that bottle of Gatorade.
