I *think* i get it. Well I can guess. When dehydrated you feel flat, like a deflated ball. So they have dramatized a deflated ball in 2D.

The 'responsibly' word is a mystery, but has a nicer and more edgy ring to it than just 'rehydrate'.

Was I right? Do I get a prize? It was only a guess...

I don't know, I don't really associate being dehydrated as being "flat" at all.

And, like you said, should that be the correct interpretation, why "responsibly"? Where does that come from?

Perhaps the concept behind it is brilliant (I have no idea), but it's too cryptic.

Good luck!

The strong tagline made up for the far-fetched visuals.

I'ts a pun for "Drink responsibly" as in alcoholic beverages... If you don't "drink responsibly" you end up flat on the pavement, same goes if you don't rehydrate responsibly... it just has a sporty twist...

I thought it means the ball has been destroyed because of the power Gatorade provides.

I think this is it.
But I think it could work like the other guy said.
Anyway it's a nice representation of sports symbols, balls like something like flowers or smt like that.
I like it all and they could make with any kind of sport.

cheers

"Hydrate Responsibly" has been a tag for Glaceau Vitamin water for a long while now.
