It's a sad, sad day for tired people.

Chaleo Yoovidhya, the Thai billionaire co-founder of Red Bull, died Saturday in Bangkok at the age of 80.

He was ranked the 205th richest man in the world with a net worth of $5 billion. He died as the third richest man in Thailand.

He helped to create the energy drink's prototype back in the 1960s and called it Krathing Daeng, or Red Bull in English.

It has since become one of the most popular energy drinks on the market today.

He leaves behind his wife and five children.

Sad.

Thank you for helping us discover the beauty of vodka and Red Bull, good sir. We will be forever grateful.

Let's all pour one out for our homie.
