BevNet reports that Red Bull GmbH has settled a false advertising U.S. class action lawsuit for $13 million, which is to be distributed to customers who purchased a Red Bull in the past 10 years.
From the article:
“The suit argues that Red Bull misleads consumers about the superiority of its products with its slogan ‘Red Bull gives you wings’ and its claims of increased performance, concentration and reaction speed, to name a few.”
3 New Slogans We Propose For Red Bull
