    False advertising.
    #1
    Caffeinated drinks giant Red Bull GmbH was sued for falsely claiming their product "gives you wings" and agreed to pay out $10 to every person who bought the drink since 2002.

    Benjamin Careathers, a regular consumer of the fizzy drink, sued the company for false advertising, arguing that after 10 years drinking Red Bull he neither had wings nor any enhanced athletic or intellectual performance.

    It is hard to imagine that anyone who saw Red Bull's advertising slogan would actually believe the caffeinated soft drink "gives you wings", but in litigation-hungry America the claim has been officially falsified.

    I heard this on air a couple of days back. Sharing.
