Soft drink manufacturer Dr Pepper, which this past spring offered to send a free can of the beverage to “everyone in America” (excluding ex-GN’R members Slash and Buckethead) if GUNS N’ ROSES’ new album, “Chinese Democracy”, were to arrive anytime during the calendar year 2008, has revealed details of the plan.
“We never thought this day would come,” says Dr Pepper VP of marketing Tony Jacobs. “But now that it’s here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper’s on us.”
According to Billboard.com, interested fans are being asked to visit DrPepper.com on November 23, the day “Chinese Democracy” is released in the U.S. exclusively via Best Buy. After registering online, fans will receive a coupon redeemable for a 20-oz. Dr Pepper wherever the drink is sold.
The twist: the coupon is only available for 24 hours and will expire on February 28.
