5-hour Energy’s Weird Old-Timey Western Sheriff Guy

Why does this guy seem like a ghost? Or a meth hallucination? Or something you’d see after slamming a bunch of 5-hour Energy shots in a row?

    I totally agree. It is creepy as if I should know who he is. (I do…he was on Murphy Brown) but the whole of the commercial doesn’t make sense.

    Dude, the guy is like a hundred years old or something. I remember watching him when I was a kid as the host of some show like Unsolved Mysteries or some other show and he was old then. That was 30 or so yrs ago. I think he actually did a great job as far as the acting goes.

      It’s not the host of Unsolved Mysteries. That was Robert Stack, and he died in 2003. But if anyone would come back from the dead, he’d be on the short list.

    Guy sure looks kinda reanimated like mostly defrosted but not quite. The really odd bit… I think he eats ‘unusual’ foods including parts of you me. This begs the question: Is 5HourEnergy merely a form of seasoning for him?

  4. Harold Adams says:

    He wears clothes about 3 sizes too large for his frail body. Does look like Robert Stack. Maybe he came back as a zombie.

    He looks like the guy from Unsolved Mysteries!

    It’s James Horan but I have no idea who he is or why he dressed up like a sheriff :S

  7. Langor says:

    And he seems so… energetic.

  8. Nikki says:

    No his name is James Horan……. Look him up on IMDB.com

    Who gives a shit who he is! The commercial sucks! All their commercials suck! Remember the ‘No 2:30 feeling later’? Dude, if it s midnight…I want it to feel like 2:30!!! If the product made it feel like 2:30 at midnight, I’d be on it. Now it’s this Star Trek freak in a sheriff’s outfit and cheesy western music trying to corral up latte drinking men. In fact, is the sheriff only there to make the product seem manlier? I love how he says, “Hours and Hours of energy”. Wow, you’re a smart sheriff. Hours and hours you say? You mean like…I don’t know…FUCKING 5 HOURS! It’s the products name! You don’t come up with a slogan that just rewords the products name! Whew…commercials and movies are just bad anymore. They’re running out of ideas.

    “…5 hour energy lasts a whole lot of hours.” Dude, it’s called “5 hour energy”. It lasts 5 hours.

  11. the sheriff says:

    it lasts a whole lotta hours.
