Fly owner sues Red Bull for false advertising after losing wings

Red Bull is in deep waters after a patron of the drink captured a fly that had consumed a few droplets from the dining room table of UK based Mr Harpreet Singh.

”I have been a loyal customer of Red Bull for close to five years and have been waiting patiently for the slogan of the ad to come true,” Mr Singh exasperatedly explained to Faking News Journalists at his press conference, referring to the popular slogan of ‘Red Bull gives you wings’.

”I was shocked and angry to see Pintu (the name Mr Singh has termed his pet fly after imprisoning the insect as proof to be used in legal proceedings) actually lose the wings Mother Nature had gifted him after consumption,” Mr Singh said.

Red Bull has been successfully running the popular advertising campaign the world over, translating their motto into a variety of languages, no doubt garnering a fan base awaiting their turn to grow wings eagerly.

Faking News’ investigative journalists have uncovered a confidential agreement the global conglomerate attempted to make with Mr Singh in order to hush the false advertising case before it hit the global media, but Mr Singh courageously refused to accept the deal rumoured to be in the billions of dollars.

“I have a duty to my fellow Red Bull drinkers”, Mr Singh confirmed at the conference. “”I cannot allow for any poor, unsuspecting individuals to be falsely anticipating that their wings will grow.”

At this point Mr Singh had to cut the conference short unexpectedly, unable to restrain his intense sobbing at his predicament, mumbling uncontrollably as he left saying, “my friends have actually been telling their old parents that they will come to India this year to see them, only because they were going to save on the airfare. Their poor parents.”

Faking News attempted to contact Red Bull, but by the time of printing this article they had not responded.

Though I know how surprised you must be to hear this, this isn’t a true story! 😀

I came across this wonderful site called Faking News, thanks to a superb blogger (on WordPress by the name of Shivansh Chaudhary), not to mention extremely talented writer and was inspired by some of his wonderful satirical posts.

Apart from the horrendous spelling error in the title, I’m enjoying the result, if you’d like to read this post and more about the wonderful website, please feel free to click on my piece. See you around guys!
