Dr. Pepper & Seven-Up are getting busted for "faking out" bloggers. Isn't that what makes good advertising - fantasy hype and unreal testimonials? At least they're not pushing Raging Cow flavored milk on 2am infomercials. I like the take in this weekend's slice at RelevantMagazine.com: "We can't tell what's more disturbing - using shady advertising tactics to influence our buying decisions, or that Dr. Pepper is making flavored milk ..." - amen.
