Xbox, ZOA and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson team up for an Xbox Series X mini-fridge sweepstakes.
When Microsoft first revealed the Xbox Series X, a lot of people thought the rectangular, boxy gaming console bore a striking resemblance to a fridge.
Microsoft ran with the joke, releasing a pretty hilarious trailer featuring a giant Xbox Series X fridge filled with gaming goodies.
Now Xbox and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson are teaming up with a fun sweepstakes for The Rock’s new energy drink company, ZOA. The sweepstakes prize includes the mini-fridge, a six-pack of ZOA energy drinks and a pair of The Rock’s classic gold-rimmed sunglasses (not real gold). It all comes in a big wooden crate with ZOA branding on it. It’s pretty cool—and I should know. Microsoft and ZOA sent me one to check out.
So we’ve seen the mini-fridge in real life and it’s pretty hilarious. It looks like a big Xbox Series X, or a small fridge (so small you’ll only be able to hold a few beverages in it at once).

The shades are super cool also—though not necessarily high-end. They don’t fog up while wearing a mask, which is nice!

As for the ZOA energy drinks themselves, I’ve tried a couple and they’re tasty. I’m not sure they’re healthy—what energy drink really is outside of tea and coffee?—despite ZOA’s inclusion of various healthy ingredients. They’re still loaded with sugar (the second ingredient after carbonated water) which all the vitamins and superfoods like camu camu can’t magic away.
You’ll definitely want to couple one of these with a hefty workout worthy of The Rock—long jog, lots of weight-lifting, etc.—to burn off some of those calories. They’re certainly tastier than most energy drinks I’ve tried, but I can’t imagine they’re actually good for you. Maybe better than the competition, but let’s not pretend this culture’s sugar addiction is a positive.
Still, you can win some of these to try for yourself along with all these other goodies and an Xbox Series X mini-fridge.
