Have you drank Red Bull atleast once in the last 12 years?

    Apparently Red Bull lost a lawsuit because it doesn't actually "give you wings". As a result you can claim $10 cash or $15 worth of free Red Bull.

    The plaintiffs claimed that the company’s advertised benefits, like increased performance and reaction speed, were false advertising, and not backed up with scientific evidence. One of the plaintiffs said despite drinking the product since 2002, he saw no improvement in his athletic performance.

    According to the lawsuit:

    Such deceptive conduct and practices mean that [Red Bull’s] advertising and marketing is not just ‘puffery,’ but is instead deceptive and fraudulent and is therefore actionable.

    Despite settling, Red Bull denied any wrongdoing in a statement:

    Red Bull settled the lawsuit to avoid the cost and distraction of litigation. However, Red Bull maintains that its marketing and labeling have always been truthful and accurate, and denies any and all wrongdoing or liability.

    Agreed. If you believed that Red Bull gave you wings, you should consider cashing yourself out of the game called life. The only reason that this case happened is because of a scumbag lawyer.
