It Does Not Give You Wings

Red Bull lost a $13 million class action lawsuit last week. It seems that it doesn't really "give you wings," and anyone who's bought Red Bull in the last 12 years is entitled to collect $10. A few extra bucks is always nice. The only catch is that you have to "feel that you were misled" by the slogan, "Red Bull gives you wings." I hope no one I've ever met, talked to, or corresponded with over the course of my life can truthfully say they thought that buying a caffeinated, cough-syrup-tasting, sugar-saturated drink would have made them sprout wings. I have no idea how the legal system works in these (or any) cases, but I am equal parts in awe of the lawyers who won this ruling and repulsed by the legal system that rewards these idiotic lawsuits. You can claim your $10 here.

  1. Sounds like a PR bonanza for Red Bull, not a class-action lawsuit.
