Dr Pepper To Give Everyone in America a Free Soda

Postby Ian on Wed Mar 26, 2008 11:55 pm

I thought this was pretty funny. Dr. Pepper announced today that they will give everyone in America a free soda if Axl Rose releases Chinese
Democracy in 2008. Considering how long its been delayed, I don't think they'll be giving away any sodas.

Tired of a world in which
Americans idolize wannabe singers and musicals about high schoolers pass as
rock 'n roll music, Dr Pepper is encouraging (ok, begging) Axl Rose to
finally release his 17-year-in-the-making belabored masterpiece, Chinese
Democracy, in 2008.

In an unprecedented show of solidarity with Axl, everyone in America,
except estranged GNR guitarists Slash and Buckethead, will receive a free
can of Dr Pepper if the album ships some time -- anytime! -- in 2008. Dr
Pepper supports Axl, and fully understands that sometimes you have to make
it through the jungle before you get it right.

"It took a little patience to perfect Dr Pepper's special mix of 23
ingredients, which our fans have come to know and love," said Jaxie Alt,
director of marketing for Dr Pepper. "So we completely understand and
empathize with Axl's quest for perfection -- for something more than the
average album. We know once it's released, people will refer to it as "Dr
Pepper for the ears" because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich,
bold sounds -- an instant classic."

Show your support for Axl and get on the nightrain of encouragement at

We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr Pepper with our album "Chinese Democracy," as for us, this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others, we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead's performances are on our album, I'll share my Dr Pepper with him.
