The latest promotional clip from Gatorade, entitled "The Lightning Bolt," tells the story of the sports drink's evolution, starting with the very first bottle of Gatorade to come out of the University of Florida labs in 1965. Created at the behest of the school's coaching staff, the replenishing beverage was developed to replace the vital components lost by Gator players through exertion and sweat. Over the succeeding decades, Gatorade would go on to fuel the world's greatest athletes, including Michael Jordan, Dwyane Wade, Serena Williams and Peyton Manning. Check out their "Lightning Bolt" moments in the video below.
