With “Chinese Democracy” Official, Dr. Pepper Reveals Free Soda Plan

By Daniel Kreps

Finally, after over a decade of false starts, we will finally get what we’ve all been waiting for: a free bottle of Dr. Pepper. With yesterday’s official confirmation that Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy is really happening, the makers of Dr. Pepper announced their plan to make good on their promise to provide everyone with free soda. “We never thought this day would come,” said Dr. Pepper vice president of marketing Tony Jacobs, “but now that it’s here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper’s on us.” Starting November 23rd, the day Chinese Democracy hits Best Buy, you can head over to the Dr. Pepper website and register your information to receive a coupon which can be redeemed for a free 20-ounce pop. However, any dreams you fostered about drinking your free Dr. Pepper while headbanging to Democracy will have to wait four-to-six weeks, the estimated delivery time to get your coupon in the mail. Still, what’s four-to-six weeks when we’ve already waited fourteen years?

Guns N' Roses' 'Chinese Democracy' to be doused in a November rain of Dr Pepper

By Gary Susman

Now that Chinese Democracy is rilly for reelz coming out in stores next month, Dr Pepper plans to make good on its offer to give a free soda to everyone in America if Axl Rose managed to get the album released before the end of 2008. "We never thought this day would come," said Tony Jacobs, vice president of marketing for Dr Pepper, in a press release. (Neither did we, Tony, neither did we.) "But now that it's here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us."

Not that the pop bottler is going to deliver a soda to everyone's doorstep. To get your free beverage, you have to have Internet access. On Nov. 23, the day of the CD's scheduled release, you can go to drpepper.com and register for a coupon to be mailed to you (coupons will be available online only for 24 hours, starting at 12:01 a.m. ET). Once it arrives, in four to six weeks, redeem it for a free 20-ounce bottle of Dr Pepper at any store that carries the drink in that size. Coupons will expire on Feb. 28, 2009, by which date you'll have had plenty of time to listen to Axl's long-gestating opus and decide whether or not it requires a soda to make the listening experience complete.

Show of hands: Who's going to buy Chinese Democracy? Who's going to take Dr Pepper up on its offer? Who plans to do both?

Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

Guns N' Roses fans thirsting for the upcoming "Chinese Democracy" will have a sweet, fizzy treat to savor as they listen.

Dr Pepper is making good on a prior promise to provide every person in America a can of the soft drink if the album were to arrive in 2008, and yesterday (Oct. 22) 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."

Interested fans are being asked to visit DrPepper.com on Nov. 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 Feb. 28.
