Red Bull recently settled a lawsuit for ‘False-advertising’ with its consumers over its popular slogan “Red bull gives you wings” (who would have known?)
Many consumers claimed that they were being mislead by Red Bull’s advertisements
(not just the wings the).
The advertisements usually promoted a massive surplus of energy as well as increased performance and concentration. Yet consumers report that the exact opposite usually happens. After having 1 drink, they usually crashed shortly after.
Furthermore Red Bull’s claims were not based on any scientific research, so the Austrian creators of the energy drink agreed to a $13million settlement with American consumers.
As it turns out, Red Bull was no more effective than a cup of coffee despite the companies outstanding exaltation of their product.
The settlement offers any customers who bought a red-bull between January 1, 2002 and October 3, 2014 [1 of 2] options….
- $10 cash
- $15 worth of Red Bull products
With both offers, No proof of purchase is required.
