Anyone here a fan of the drink Red Bull? If so, you may be interested to read about this recent lawsuit and settlement associated with the energy drink:

Personally, I find it hard to believe that anyone thought they might actually get wings from drinking this stuff. :D

I kind of feel like this would be a perfect fit in the ridiculous items thread. Trusting marketing claims without a bit of skepticism is basically always a mistake. Sure, no one expected literal wings, but never take marketing at face value.

Well, shucks. Looks like your marketing slogan is now yet another piece of easily-litigated legal bullcrap.

Then again, I don't drink Red Bull and am getting absolutely $0 of their money, so what do I know?

Does anyone else here remember the lawsuit against Pepsi for when they first did their "Pepsi Points" promotion and had the tv commercial advertise that you could get an F-16 for something like 20,000,000 points? The ended up having to pay the man who sued them a monetary sum equal to the cost of an F-16 in exchange for the Pepsi Points he had legitimately collected, it was nuts.

That actually crossed my mind too later in the day after I had already posted it here. I agree on the ridiculous part. :yes:
