Sprunk is a carbonated lemon lime beverage claimed in a [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] radio commercial to contain "10 times the caffeine and sugar", mixed with mercury, ether and benzene, and packaged in [[File:Sprunk-GTASA-billboard-1-.jpg|thumb|Sprunk Billboard in GTA San Andreas]]fragmentation grenade-shaped cans. The Sprunk logo and color scheme are a caricature of [[wp:Sprite (soft drink)|Sprite]] and "spunk", a slang term for semen. The company's slogan in GTA IV is "''The Essence of Life''".
 
   
Sprunk establishments are found in both [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. In San Andreas, players can find the offices of Sprunk in [[East Beach]], [[Los Santos]], as well as a factory in [[Montgomery]], [[Red County]]. In GTA IV, opposite the [[Honkers Gentlemen's Club|Honkers]] in [[Alderney]], there is a large Sprunk billboard, while an abandoned[[Sprunk Factory| factory]] can be found in [[Tudor]], [[Alderney]].

'''Sprunk''' ([[BAWSAQ]] : '''SPU''') is a brand of [[wp:Lemon-lime|lemon-lime]] soft drink featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. It is the most basic product to appear in most of the games and appears to be the replacement for [[FunCola]] from ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]''. It is obviously based on [[wp:Sprite (soft drink)|Sprite]]. The player can buy stocks from them in the [[Bawsaq.com]] website in GTA V.
   
Sprunk [[Vending Machines|vending machines]] are dotted throughout [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], from which the player can buy a can of Sprunk for $1, drink its contents to replenish their health, and throw the empty can away (for GTA IV, the player can pick up and throw the can again). A plastic bottle of Sprunk can also be bought from [[Vendors|newspaper stands]] all over the [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|city]] in GTA IV. A Sprunk vending machine is also featured in cutscenes in Roman's taxi depot, though it is otherwise inaccessible.

Sprunk returns yet again in GTA V, now playing a more notable role in the game. A few vehicles, such as the [[Mallard]] and [[Sanchez]] can be obtained in Sprunk liveries, most likely used to promote the drink. Sprunk soda machines also return in GTA V, working the same way as they do in GTA IV.

Vehicles that can spawn in Sprunk liveries include:

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* In the [[Bohan]] Warehouse in [[GTA IV]], boxes and cans of Sprunk with the logo designs used in [[GTA: Vice City]] and [[GTA: San Andreas]] can be found. This is also found on a refrigerator in [[TW@ Internet Cafe]]s if you walk to the left of the door. The boxes will leak Sprunk soda if shot at.
+
* In the [[Chase Point Warehouse|Bohan Warehouse]] in [[GTA IV]], boxes and cans of Sprunk with the logo designs used in [[GTA: Vice City]] and [[GTA: San Andreas]] can be found. This is also found on a refrigerator in [[TW@ Internet Cafe]]s if you walk to the left of the door. The boxes will leak Sprunk soda if shot at.
* In GTA San Andreas, when CJ buys a can of Sprunk from a vending machine, he drinks it upside down.
+
* The Sprunk sign in [[East Island City]] in GTA IV is based on a real life sign for [[wp:Pepsi|Pepsi Cola]] located in New York's [[wp:Long Island City|Long Island City]].
* [[w:c:manhunt:Sprunk|Sprunk]] is also featured in the [[Manhunt]] series.
+
* In GTA San Andreas, when [[CJ]] buys a can of Sprunk from a vending machine, he drinks it upside down.
* The name is a play on "Spunk":, a slang term for semen. This is reinforced by the Sprunk motto ''"The Essence of Life."'' The rising bubbles on the logo also resemble sperm.
+
* [[w:c:manhunt:Sprunk|Sprunk]] is also featured in the [[Rockstar]] series [[Manhunt]].
* In GTA San Andreas, a Sprunk billboard featuring a short-haired woman can be found on the southern edge of [[Jefferson]], [[Los Santos]] (next to the east-west expressway into the commercial heart of Los Santos), with the slogan "''A Taste of Things to Come''".Following a car chase during "[[Reuniting the Families]]" that ends with [[Greenwood|the gang's car]] crashing through the billboard, the billboard's slogan, partially cut away by a clean hole created from the crash, now reads "''A Taste of _______Come''", referring to "cum" (an informal term for semen). The billboard piece can in fact be destroyed before "Reuniting The Families" using any weapon.
+
* The name is a play on of "Spunk", a slang term for semen. This is reinforced by the Sprunk motto ''"The Essence of Life."'' The rising bubbles on the logo also resemble sperm.
* Sprunk co-exists with [[eCola]], a seeming play of [[wp:Coca-Cola|Coca-Cola]]. In reality, Sprite is a brand owned by Coca-Cola.
+
* The allusion to sperm may itself be a reference to various (false) urban legends connecting [[wp:Mountain Dew|Mountain Dew]] to sperm loss.
* Sprunk Xtreme seems to be a parody of either Mountain Dew's MDX variant or the AMP Energy brand as both Mountain Dew and Sprunk are major sponsors of an [[Z Games|action sports tour]].
+
* In GTA San Andreas, a Sprunk billboard featuring a short-haired woman can be found on the southern edge of [[Jefferson, Los Santos]] (next to the east-west expressway into the commercial heart of Los Santos), with the slogan "''A Taste of Things to Come''". Following a car chase during "[[Reuniting the Families]]" that ends with [[Greenwood|the gang's car]] crashing through the billboard, the billboard's slogan, partially cut away by a clean hole created from the crash, now reads "''A Taste of _______Come''", referring to "cum" (an informal term for semen). The billboard piece can in fact be destroyed before "Reuniting The Families" using any weapon, however the billboard will revert to its pre-Reuniting the Families appearance when going far enough from it.
* In GTA IV, Sprunk vending machines instead produce cans of [[Orang-O-Tang]]. Cans of Sprunk can be obtained, but only from [[eCola]] machines.
+
* Sprunk co-exists with [[ECola]], an obvious parody [[wp:Coca-Cola|Coca-Cola]]. In reality, Sprite is a brand owned by Coca-Cola. In GTA IV, cans of Sprunk can be obtained from ECola vending machines, implying Sprunk may be owned by ECola in the [[HD Universe]].
* The drink bottle advertised on GTA IV renditions of the Sprunk vending machines oddly resemble classic early 1900s Coca-Cola bottles despite Sprite being introduced much later, around the late 1970s.
+
* Sprunk Xtreme seems to be a parody of either [[wp:Mountain Dew MDX|Mountain Dew's MDX]] variant or the [[wp:Amp Energy|AMP Energy]] brand as both Mountain Dew and Sprunk are major sponsors of an [[Z Games|action sports tour]].
* In GTA IV's files, the model name for one of the Sprunk bottles is labeled "Sprite Bottle", further evidence suggesting Sprunk is based off of Sprite.
+
* In GTA IV, Sprunk vending machines instead produce cans of [[Orang-O-Tang]], cans of Sprunk can be obtained, but only from ECola machines.
* A ghost is believed to be in the abandoned Sprunk factory where the Russian mafia members hid.
+
* In EFLC, during the commercial for Sprunk Extreme for the [[Base Jumping]], there's a segment where a person is jumping with a [[Caddy]] to a Sprunk billboard in [[Star Junction]]. This might be a nod to the San Andreas' mission ''Reuniting the Families'', where the Grove Street gang crash their car through a Sprunk billboard. However, in the EFLC commercial, the Caddy explodes when trying to crash the billboard.
  +
* In GTA V's Flight School, you can pilot a Sprunk [[Mallard|plane]] in certain lessons.
  +
* In GTA V, "stalking" Sprunk's page on the [[Lifeinvader]]'s real life website grants the player a free vending machine order, provided the player connects Lifeinvader on the [[Social Club]].
  +
* In GTA V for the next-gen consoles, a [[Bravado]] [[Buffalo S]] used in [[Stock Car Racing (GTA V)|stock car races]] has a Sprunk livery.

Sprunk (BAWSAQ : SPU) is a brand of lemon-lime soft drink featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V. It is the most basic product to appear in most of the games and appears to be the replacement for FunCola from Grand Theft Auto III. It is obviously based on Sprite. The player can buy stocks from them in the Bawsaq.com website in GTA V.

A Sprunk billboard in GTA San Andreas.

Vending machine (GTA4) (Sprunk)

A Sprunk vending machine, as seen in GTA IV.

Sprunk in GTA V

Trevor Philips walking away from a burning truck with a Sprunk vending machine in the background.

Sprunk is a carbonated lemon lime beverage claimed in a Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas radio commercial to contain "10 times the caffeine and sugar", mixed with mercury, ether and benzene, and packaged in fragmentation grenade-shaped cans. The Sprunk logo and color scheme are a caricature of Sprite and "spunk", a slang term for semen. The company's slogan since GTA IV has been "The Essence of Life".

Sprunk establishments are found in both Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. In San Andreas, players can find a branch office of Sprunk in East Beach, Los Santos, as well as a packaging plant in Montgomery, Red County. In GTA IV, opposite Honkers in Alderney, there is a large Sprunk billboard and an abandoned packaging plant can be found in Tudor, Alderney.

Sprunk vending machines are dotted throughout Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV, from which the player can buy a can of Sprunk for $1, drink its contents to replenish their health, and throw the empty can away (for GTA IV, the player can pick up and throw the can again). A plastic bottle of Sprunk can also be bought from newspaper stands all over the city in GTA IV. A Sprunk vending machine is also featured in cutscenes in Roman's taxi depot, though it is otherwise inaccessible.

Advertisements have also been featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Manhunt and Manhunt 2. The player can also download a Sprunk theme for their phone via Vipluxuryringtones.com in GTA IV, the Sprunk logo can be found on some Benson trucks in the same game. In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, several billboards for Sprunk can be seen, and, in the PSP and iOS ports of the game, it is also one of the three to choose skins for your PDA.

In GTA IV, Sprunk is also a sponsor of the Venturas Poker Challenge on Weazel and an extreme base jumping competition on CNT in The Ballad of Gay Tony, where 16 contestants go head-to-head and race to base jump off of certain buildings in Liberty City.

Sprunk returns yet again in GTA V, now playing a more notable role in the game. A few vehicles, such as the Mallard and Sanchez can be obtained in Sprunk liveries, most likely used to promote the drink. Sprunk soda machines also return in GTA V, working the same way as they do in GTA IV.

Vehicles that can spawn in Sprunk liveries include:

TriviaEdit

  • In the Bohan Warehouse in GTA IV, boxes and cans of Sprunk with the logo designs used in GTA: Vice City and GTA: San Andreas can be found. This is also found on a refrigerator in TW@ Internet Cafes if you walk to the left of the door. The boxes will leak Sprunk soda if shot at.
  • The Sprunk sign in East Island City in GTA IV is based on a real life sign for Pepsi Cola located in New York's Long Island City.
  • In GTA San Andreas, when CJ buys a can of Sprunk from a vending machine, he drinks it upside down.
  • Sprunk is also featured in the Rockstar series Manhunt.
  • The name is a play on of "Spunk", a slang term for semen. This is reinforced by the Sprunk motto "The Essence of Life." The rising bubbles on the logo also resemble sperm.
  • The allusion to sperm may itself be a reference to various (false) urban legends connecting Mountain Dew to sperm loss.
  • In GTA San Andreas, a Sprunk billboard featuring a short-haired woman can be found on the southern edge of Jefferson, Los Santos (next to the east-west expressway into the commercial heart of Los Santos), with the slogan "A Taste of Things to Come". Following a car chase during "Reuniting the Families" that ends with the gang's car crashing through the billboard, the billboard's slogan, partially cut away by a clean hole created from the crash, now reads "A Taste of _______Come", referring to "cum" (an informal term for semen). The billboard piece can in fact be destroyed before "Reuniting The Families" using any weapon, however the billboard will revert to its pre-Reuniting the Families appearance when going far enough from it.
  • Sprunk co-exists with ECola, an obvious parody Coca-Cola. In reality, Sprite is a brand owned by Coca-Cola. In GTA IV, cans of Sprunk can be obtained from ECola vending machines, implying Sprunk may be owned by ECola in the HD Universe.
  • Sprunk Xtreme seems to be a parody of either Mountain Dew's MDX variant or the AMP Energy brand as both Mountain Dew and Sprunk are major sponsors of an action sports tour.
  • In GTA IV, Sprunk vending machines instead produce cans of Orang-O-Tang, cans of Sprunk can be obtained, but only from ECola machines.
  • In EFLC, during the commercial for Sprunk Extreme for the Base Jumping, there's a segment where a person is jumping with a Caddy to a Sprunk billboard in Star Junction. This might be a nod to the San Andreas' mission Reuniting the Families, where the Grove Street gang crash their car through a Sprunk billboard. However, in the EFLC commercial, the Caddy explodes when trying to crash the billboard.
  • In GTA V's Flight School, you can pilot a Sprunk plane in certain lessons.
  • In GTA V, "stalking" Sprunk's page on the Lifeinvader's real life website grants the player a free vending machine order, provided the player connects Lifeinvader on the Social Club.
  • In GTA V for the next-gen consoles, a Bravado Buffalo S used in stock car races has a Sprunk livery.
