Florida Orange Juice: The Prescription for a Positive Outlook

New Video From Florida Orange Juice and Funny or Die Shows Why You Should Never Go a Day Without OJ -- Even If You're a Celebrity

BARTOW, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2012) - Many of us drink 100 percent orange juice daily for its great taste, but new research suggests the potential for an added benefit -- it may also help us feel more carefree, positive and rejuvenated. To bring these new findings to light, Florida Orange Juice teamed up with the comic geniuses at Funny or Die to create a video showing how the American breakfast staple can help us all take on the day.

The result is a humorous video, launched nationally today, starring a well-known actress discovering the positive power of orange juice. In the video, she can't bear the thought of getting out of bed and dreads the day ahead until she drinks her orange juice. Check out the video to see what happens.
