Scientist gives subject Bunch-O-Munch, and subject goes crazy and starts doing sit-ups, curl-ups, etc.
Scientist gives subject Bunch-O-Munch, and subject does some crazy exercising. Then he rips open his shirt to reveal an undershirt sporting the Bunch-O-Munch logo.
Test subject goes on exercise rampage, starting with weights, going on to the outside to go jogging, skiing, snowboarding, etc.
Two guys walking into the gym, caring gym bags. They look each other over. One asks, "What's in the bag?" in a condescending way. The other reveals his inferior energy bar, and says it's what the store said was most popular. First guy pulls out his Bunch-O-Munch, explains a little about it's superiority.
The two guys are obviously feeling competitive with each other. The second guy goes to the treadmills and starts at an easy pace. The first guy (Bunch-O-Munch guy) follows. One guy raises the speed. The other follows. After a while, this guy raises the speed and the other guy follows. Etc. Eventually, second guy obviously crashes. Sweat pours off of him. He flies off of treadmill. First guy keeps on going, feeling just fine. He tosses the second guy a Bunch-O-Munch bar over his shoulder. Second guy takes a bite, and gets back on the treadmill, going crazy with it.
Possible Filler: Pan to TV monitor and show the scientist on the TV talking about Bunch-O-Munch.
Possible Filler: Pan to their trainer once first guy tosses the bar to the second guy, and second guy asks what it is. Trainer replaces the idea of the scientist, explaining about the bar.
Wearing 80's clothing, or strangely dressed in some manner.
End video with: "No side effects!" But in the background, can see the two guys punching each other while on the treadmill. Video cuts out awkwardly - maybe seems to fall down.
