RedBull?

I found these cans of RedBull when I was in Vietnam.  I’m used to the blue and red cans in the U.S., but had never seen one like this.  I still don’t know if they are real with region specific packaging or  a knock off.

I emailed  a photo to Red Bull in the U.S., but never got a response. 😕

If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them.

UPDATE from Wikipedia

The Thai product is a different company from the global brand Red Bull as formulated by Dietrich Mateschitz, and Austrian entrepreneur.  Mateschitz was the international marketing director for Blendax, a German toothpaste company, when he visited Thailand in 1982 and discovered Krating Daeng helped to cure his jet lag.  He worked with Chaleo’s T.C. Pharmaceuticals to adapt the formula and composition to Western tastes.  Red Bull was launched in 1987.  The two companies are often mistaken for each other, but they are separate entities focusing on different target markets.  Today, Red Bull GmbH is 51 percent controlled by the Yoovidhya family, who own the trademark for the drink in Europe and the U.S.
