The Healthy Energy Drink Made a Splash at Sundance and Will Be Featured on Entertainment Tonight's Sundance Special Airing This Week

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Alongside world premiere independent films, Verve made its debut to the film world elite at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival held in Park City, Utah, from January 17-27. As a sponsor of the Project Green Music Lounge, Verve not only helped support the nonprofit's mission to protect green space for future generations and fund Back-to-Basics Summer Camps for under-served children, but it also energized Sundance attendees, from A-list celebrities and film industry executives, to VIP moviegoers.

Guests of the Project Green Music Lounge and The RE:treat lounge sponsored by Entertainment Tonight, MTV, Project Green, The Creative Coalition, CW3PR, Nikki Beach, Southwest Airlines and Minnetonka were treated to Verve Energy Drink as well as Verve Healthy Happy Hour cocktails. The Project Green Music Lounge and RE:treat were bursting with energy and provided spectacular views and hot venues for celebrity interviews, music and entertainment. Guests also received a selection of Verve Energy Drink products in celebrity swag bags distributed at the lounge-style gifting suites. Verve was shared with Hollywood elite such as Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Watts, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Bell, Jane Lynch and others, who received Verve and Verve Zero Sugar to enjoy at the festival.

With its great taste and healthy ingredients, Verve also caught the attention of Entertainment Tonight and will be featured on the show's Sundance Special, which airs this week in the United States and internationally over the weekend. Check your local ET air dates and times here or view the segment online. Entertainment Tonight is touted as the most watched entertainment news magazine in the world and is the longest-running entertainment news program.

Lending its dazzling design to the spectacular Park City backdrop, Verve was spotted on MTV News interviews with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (making his directorial debut with "Don Jon's Addiction") and Tony Danza, as well as Director Robert Rodriguez, who returned to Park City to celebrate the anniversary of his cult classic, "El Mariachi."

BK Boreyko, Vemma Founder and CEO, commented, "Verve is a fresh and dynamic brand that fits perfectly with the excitement and energy at Sundance. We were honored to participate in this year's festival and happy to support Project Green and their efforts to promote healthy kids and a healthy environment."
