Blabbermouth.net – With the tentative drop date of Sunday, November 23, 2008 for the release (FINALLY) of Guns N’ Roses “Chinese Democracy” cd, Dr. Pepper VP of Marketing Tony Jacobs is saying the company will honor it’s promise to give a free Dr. Pepper to every person in America (except Slash & Buckethead).
Click the link above for all the details but it will basically involve signing up on the Dr. Pepper site (www.drpepper.com) anytime on the exact date of November 23 in the US (which oddly enough, is a Sunday not the usual drop day of Tuesday for a CD). So you have 24 hours to make it happen. Then, 4-6 weeks later you’ll receive a coupon via snail mail for a free 20 oz. drink – redeemable until February 28, 2009.
Now, if the free Ozzfest experience has taught us anything, you should plan on logging in EARLY and being very patient to sign up for your coupon. Hopefully the powers that be at Dr. Pepper have taken the proper steps to insure a smooth process on Nov. 23 but hey, you don’t want to chance it, do ya’?
Me neither, I might just stay up late on Saturday the 22nd and get it done with my usual weekend cocktails. Is that morally wrong, to sign-up for a free Dr. Pepper while drinking rum & coke?
