May 29, 2013

Drink MDMI-Logoachine Incorporated (DMI) announced that Pepper Hastings, VP of Carbonation and Serpentine Feeding Systems, was named DMI Employee of the Month for May 2013. Hastings is pictured below after declaring all is well with Drink Machine’s 28-can cooling shelf and feeding system.

“Hastings has been a model employee who takes initiative and has learned to use Voice Changing technology to further DMI’s call to actions,” said Michael Mueller, VP of Energy Drink Procurement, and the only other employee of DMI. “He deserves this honor.”

Mueller pointed out some of the advantages of being employed by DMI, including no additional compensation AND travel to exciting exotic locations such as Tom Thumb, Albertsons, Costco and Kroger. Mueller says Hastings was treated to a handshake and a Refreshe brand cherry cola in a sparsely attended, brief ceremony at DMI headquarters Tuesday afternoon.

We shot two new Cool Gadget vids last Friday using our new lightboxes and video studio. Gene walked in with a camera while I struggled to assemble these seemingly harmless yet inherently dangerous items. Have you ever put up a tent? That’s what this reminded me of.
