When did Fall become such a big deal? Did I miss a memo?
Remember back when I said Dr. Pepper had issued a challenge to Guns N’ Roses? For those who don’t, the deal was that the soft drink company was offering a free Dr. Pepper to every person in the United States of America if Guns N’ Roses would release their long awaited album, “Chinese Democracy“, by the end of 2008.
Well, since it looks like the album is actually going to come out on November 23rd, Dr. Pepper has announced that they are going to make good on their end of the deal! Kudos to them, though I do wonder now if this was all planned, but whatever the case is, people everywhere will be getting a free soda out of the deal. (I no longer drink soda, but more power to everyone else!)
Here is the press release with all of the details on how you can get your free drink:
Don’t cry, Guns N’ Roses fans.
The agonizing wait for the 17 years-in-the-making masterpiece Chinese
Democracy will finally be over (fingers crossed) on Nov. 23, 2008. Sure,
there have been more rumored release dates than the 23 flavors of Dr
Pepper, but if Chinese Democracy hits stores as announced today, it’s going
to be so easy, easy for every American to get a free Dr Pepper as promised.
“We never thought this day would come,” said Tony Jacobs, vice
president of marketing for Dr Pepper. “But now that it’s here all we can
say is: The Dr Pepper’s on us.”
