*Yes, this blog is about Guns N' Roses* :P
Sorry about not commenting on the previous blog with all the recent comments.There are quite a lot of them and I've been rather busy....
Ok.Today has been a rather odd day.For those who don't know, I'm a really big fan of Guns N' Roses.And I've been hugely expecting Chinese Democracy.Chinese Democracy is the long delayed GNR album that's been in the works for about 9-14 years.But this recent happening took me quite by surprise...
Dr.Pepper will give everyone in the United States a free can of Dr.Pepper if Chinese Democracy is released this year. :|
Getting this free can won't be easy! :lol:
Dr Pepper Will Give Everyone* in America a Free Soda If Axl Rose Releases New Guns N' Roses Album, Chinese Democracy, In 2008
*Guitarists Slash and Buckethead Will Not Be Eligible For Free Soda
*^ :lol: at bolded statement*
PLANO, Texas, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Tired of a world in which Americans idolize wannabe singers and musicals about high schoolers pass as rock 'n roll music, Dr Pepper is encouraging (ok, begging) Axl Rose to finally release his 17-year-in-the-making belabored masterpiece, Chinese Democracy, in 2008.
In an unprecedented show of solidarity with Axl, everyone in America, except estranged GNR guitarists Slash and Buckethead, will receive a free can of Dr Pepper if the album ships some time -- anytime! -- in 2008. Dr Pepper supports Axl, and fully understands that sometimes you have to make it through the jungle before you get it right.
"It took a little patience to perfect Dr Pepper's special mix of 23 ingredients, which our fans have come to know and love," said Jaxie Alt, director of marketing for Dr Pepper. "So we completely understand and empathize with Axl's quest for perfection -- for something more than the average album. We know once it's released, people will refer to it as "Dr Pepper for the ears" because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich, bold sounds -- an instant clas.sic."
Show your support for Axl and get on the nightrain of encouragement at http://www.chinesedemocracywhen.blogspot.com/ -
Then Axl Rose sent out this statement:
" We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr. Pepper with our album Chinese Democracy as for us this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead's performances are on our album I'll share my Dr. Pepper with him".
This statement can now be found on the Guns N' Roses website.Here is the link to his statement.
There's something regarding this statement though.It appear's rather factual.Did you read beyond the lines? Dr.Pepper promises a can to everyone in the U.S.But, Axl Rose promises to share that can with Buckethead! :shock: He couldnt be able to get one if it wasn't free meaning... yess.. YESS!!
CHINESE DEMOCRACY STARTS NOW!!!!!!!!!
2008 RELEASE HERE WE COME!
Yeah, Buckethead is still on the album!
No Joke.I didnt know whether to believe this at first.Then it was everywhere, New York Post, GN'R message boards I frequent, CNN, AOL, MTV, etc etc.
I even posted this in The Gamespot Off Topic board.Here is the link to that
.Thanks for Shiggums and icarus212001 for posting there!
So do you think this will actually work? Is this the year it's finally going to be released? I myself have enjoyed the Chinese Democracy Leaks from 2006 and 2007.
What are your thoughts on this marketing campaign? And who wants a free can of Dr.Pepper?
All in all, I think this is pretty hilarious. :lol:
