For any who may not know the original slogan of red bull was that “Redbull gives you wings” but with only one i in the word wings. So inevitable someone sued the company for false advertising saying that when he drank it he did not get wings as was promised by the slogan. The customer actually won the case and so redbull decided to change their slogan to include wings as wiiings (it’s technically not a real word so it has not meaning) to avoid further incidents
@Gladiator, he won 13 million. Which is insane. Especially because the woman who burned herself on McDonald’s coffee almost died and didn’t even get her medical bills covered.
@MetalHeadTony, you forgetting how McDonald’s also levied a smear campaign against her, so even now scrolling through the comments I’m sure you could find a psyche not shown the whole picture, espousing her stupidity even though the coffee was 196 degrees which was known to be way too fûcking hot, she wasn’t the only one injured, McDonald’s made it seem like it, they are lucky to have avoided a class action, hence the smear campaign
@LightskinDarkNig, I didn’t forget my friend. Shjts fvcked up. Now everyone thinks that people sue over everything, although there is no evidence to support that.
@MetalHeadTony, just the dumb cases we see on the news supports it. Like the fat people and mcd’s
@MetalHeadTony, heard the woman got $700,000. Which she desereved a lot more but still.
@Gladiator, the lawsuit in question was about false advertising but was not to do with the slogan per se. Instead the plaintiff sued on the grounds that Red Bull had no proof that their drink was any more potent than a cup of coffee, despite claims to the contrary.
Also it was $10 per customer. the 13 million was money placed aside to pay said claims.
@LightskinDarkNig, I was burned by their coffee right before her. Like 1 week. I was in kindergarten at the time and the burns to my feet an legs were so bad I was in a wheelchair for 3 months. Messed me up so badly mentally I can't take a hot shower. Best I can do is slightly warm. McDonald's offered to pay all of my medical bills if my parents didn't try to take it public.
@that crazy Marine, I’m sorry to hear that bud
@MetalHeadTony, USA USA USA USA
@Gladiator, WTF this can’t possibly be true....my mind can’t comprehend the stupidity!
Guys I just took a trip into random cause I was bored and found a post from 92months ago that people were saying was a repost and “oldie but a Goldie” and I remembered the post too. Jesus am I that old?
@ForgottenInTime, I'll make you feel old. Next year in June will be funny pics 10th anniversary.
@DapperBear, naw it’s older than that it’s been around since I was in grade 9 so it’s at least 12 yeara
@ForgottenInTime, I've only been hanging around since 2012 so I'm just going based off what the play store says. Still. We're old af.

No wings, just fly
