email to dr. pepper/snapple employees regarding the ordeal..
You may have seen recent media reports that a lawyer representing Axl Rose and Guns n’ Roses is speaking out against the Dr Pepper giveaway associated with the release of the band’s album, "Chinese Democracy." We realize you may be getting questions about the publicity surrounding this event and wanted to give you some information regarding our position. Following is the statement we have provided to reporters.
We are disappointed that GNR’s lawyers are turning a fun giveaway into a legal dispute. We simply commented on the delayed release of "Chinese Democracy" and openly encouraged the band to release it before the end of the year. Axl even expressed support for our efforts earlier this year.
When the album release was confirmed, Guns n’ Roses’ management team approached us and we openly shared our giveaway plans. For us, this has always been about the fans, and we’ve taken great steps to fulfill our offer, including:
• extending the window for the giveaway from 24 to 42 hours.
• adding a toll-free line to handle consumer requests for the coupons.
• setting up an interactive voice recorder to accept coupon requests.
Additionally, for those who contacted us in the week after the giveaway about difficulties requesting the coupon, we continued to offer free coupons to address any problems they may have encountered.
This was one of the largest responses we have ever received for a giveaway, and we’re happy we were able to satisfy the thirst of so many Dr Pepper fans.
We wish Guns n’ Roses the best with their album.
