Gamma Labs G FuelThree lucky winners of an explosive video game contest by the energy drink G Fuel thought they’d be living out their favorite video games when they were given a chance of a lifetime to shoot live ammo at exploding targets with members of U.S. Special Forces.

But they got an added bonus: Starring in a new action short produced by a well-known Hollywood director released today on YouTube by Gamma Labs, the makers of G Fuel.

Christian Gaytan, 15, Burke Herr, 18, and Victor Lee Byrne, 23, star as hostages taken by a rogue militia group. After fueling up on G Fuel, U.S. Special Forces, armed to the teeth, are called to duty to rescue the hostages. The high-intensity short highlights the explosive rescue attempt.

As winners of the Mission Gunship contest, the trio was expecting an opportunity to live a real life video game. They won a chance to train with a U.S. Special Forces team on various weapons including a helicopter mounted mini-gun and fire live ammo at real targets.

In addition, they starred in a video produced and directed by Hollywood’s Jijo Reed.

“After a day of shooting sniper rifles and M-60’s, I didn’t think the day could get much better!” said Byrne. “I’m pretty stoked to have been proven wrong.”

Gamma Labs received thousands of entries from 30 countries for the explosive video game contest. A trailer launching the contest received more than 4-million views on YouTube in less than two weeks. Winners were selected randomly after purchasing G Fuel from retail partners and online shops.

G Fuel is the only energy drink formulated by gamers, for gamers. The fast-growing brand utilizes an all-natural booster formula that gives gamers the necessary energy to play and compete for hours without rest or distractions.

 “It’s an exciting time to be a G Fuel fan,” says Clifford Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Gamma Labs. “Mission; GUNSHIP was big, but we plan to go bigger.”

At the end of the short movie, G Fuel teases the next contest code-named Mission: “Zombie Apocalypse.” The contest will force winners to shoot their way through a zombie infested town in hopes of surviving long enough for help to arrive.
