Props to Dr. Pepper for their snarky promise to give everyone in America a can of their soda if Axl Rose (pictured) finally releases Chinese Democracy sometime in 2008. (Well, everyone except former Guns n’ Roses guitarists Slash and Buckethead. Sorry, guys.) The Pepper people have even started a blog to encourage Axl to end the 17-year drought and get off the can, so to speak. In mock sympathy for Axl’s painstaking perfectionism, the Pepper press release proclaims,
Very clever stunt, since they’re all but guaranteed not to have to make good on the offer.
UPDATE: Axl responds!
