Dr Pepper to deliver on its free-soda promise on release of “Chinese Democracy”

November 21, 2008

It took literally 17 years for it to become a reality, but Guns N' Roses is finally ready to release their new album, Chinese Democracy......Dr Pepper (owned by Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc.) is making good on its promise of free soda now that the release of Guns N’ Roses’ “Chinese Democracy” is a reality. The long-long wait for “Chinese Democracy” is over and now all 14 tracks of the long-anticipated album began streaming on MySpace.com Thursday.

Coupons for a free 20-ounce soda will be available for 24 hours on Dr Pepper’s Web site, beginning Sunday at 12:01 a.m.,. They’ll be honored until Feb. 28.

The soft-drink maker said in March that it would give a free soda to everyone in America if the album dropped in 2008. “Chinese Democracy,” infamously delayed since recording began in 1994, goes on sale Sunday.

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