Red Bull has been a source for many people to get through those late night essays, create that presentation for work or even complete the last level of Operation Flashpoint (thanks btw red bull). As highest selling energy drink in the world for many many years, it may come to a huge surprise to many that Red Bull does not in fact give you “wings”. The slogan, which is synonymous with the brand, has been found to be false by a judge in the US and has been ordered to pay $13m to people who have bought a red bull in the last few years. This means that you could receive £6.17 for the lack of wings sprouting from your back.
I can fully understand why false claims of products should be dealt with, but is this going too far?
