Does Dr. Pepper Know Something We Don't Know about 'Chinese Democracy?'

Cadbury Schweppes Beverage Co. Pledges 301,139,947 Cans if Album Is Released in 2008

By Published on .

Dr. Pepper is promising to deliver a can of their brown liquid to every American if Axl Rose can finally produce "Chinese Democracy" this year. The forthcoming Guns N Roses album will probably end up being the most expensive (as of 2005, the bill had reached $13 million) and questionably anticipated rock album of all time.

"It took a little patience for us to perfect Dr Pepper's special mix of 23 ingredients, so we completely understand and empathize with Axl's question for the perfect album," a spokeperson from the beverage company told Page Six.

About a year ago, a demo from the album, "Better," was leaked by Harley-Davidson, which was working with the band to include a rendition of "Paradise City" in a TV spot.
