I quite literally laughed out loud when I read this. I hadn’t heard about this deal before but Dr. Pepper has promised to give every American a bottle of Dr. P should Guns ‘n’ Roses (read: Axl Rose and whomever he’s conned into playing his terrible songs) actually deliver their album before the end of 2008.

G’n’R (who bears no resemblance whatsoever to the actual G’n’R which existed from 1986 – 1991) has supposedly confirmed a release date of November 23rd.

“We never thought this day would come,” the brand’s VP of marketing, Tony Jacobs, said. “But now that it’s here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper’s on us.”

I still don’t believe it’ll happen. But even if it does, stop calling it Guns ‘N’ Roses. It’ll confuse people into thinking they’re related to the real Guns ‘N’ Roses who made a pretty kick-ass album called Appetite for Destruction more than 20 years ago.
