Dr. Pepper says soda can is ‘vers’ in alleged ad

An alleged ad for Dr. Pepper is causing a stir for its insinuation that the soda can is gay.

Twitter user BarmyArmy posted a photo of the ad which shows a picture of the Dr. Pepper can’s top labeled “top,” it’s bottom labeled “bottom” and a picture of the entire can labeled “vers.”

“A queer drink for diverse drinkers,” reads the tagline at the bottom.

The ad is rumored to have come from Sweden but there is no further evidence of its origins or if its even a legitimate advertisement.

Whether the ad is real or not, people didn’t waste time making jokes about the soda’s “sexuality.”

I’d let dr pepper search my asshole any day of the week from r/lgbt

Others found the ad to be offensive to the LGBT community.

While others appreciated Dr. Pepper for trying to engage with the community at all.
