Today marks the long-awaited (17 years to be exact) release of the new Guns N’ Roses album, “Chinese Democracy”. Sadly, the album was debuted exclusively on the bands myspace page, while I might suggest ignoring the ads and the headache by downloading it here on the pirate bay.
Okay okay so the new GNR is worth noting (not really), where does Dr. Pepper come in?
A few months ago in March, the company publicly pledged that if Guns and Roses actually does release their new studio album, they will give every American a free can of Dr. Pepper. Yay for corporate promises!
Fast forward to today, and we get FREE DR. PEPPER (allow 4-6 weeks for delivery).
“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.”
The promotion ends tonight at midnight so go get some! All they ask for in return is a bit of personal information, I’m not a huge fan of giving away ANY personal information, but the company needs to know where to send the coupon right? If your having trouble at the website, call 1-800-696-5891 and get hooked up.
Also, I was watching ESPN the other day when I noticed this at press conference with Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips:
Can I propose that if Dr. Pepper has the money to put its logo on a microphone at any NFL conference, then they should consider buying and rebuilding our failing Detroit Lions organization? This could be the future!! Just think, logo’s on the field, logos on the jerseys, logos on the stadium, everywhere you look Dr. Pepper. Why the hell not? It might be a good thing, they might actually put some time into recruiting so this football team wouldn’t lose every sunday (unlike Ford).
The Detroit Lions are now 0-11, if the team remains winless throughout the rest of the season they will have broken a new league record for consecutive losses and be dubbed the worst football team in history. Any buyers?
