Kansas State college student Claire Daniels loves herself some Dr. Pepper. Back in December, she sent out a harmless tweet about how much she was craving the soda.
Now five months later, Dr. Pepper pulled out all the stops to make her wish come true. The company surprised Daniels with a six-foot tall fountain that can hold up to five gallons of the drink!
Drinking Dr. Pepper from an outdoor fountain doesn’t sound that appetizing, so the company also hooked Claire up with 1,200 cans of the sweet stuff.
“I am still kind of in awe…It was just kind of a joke tweet, but here we are,” Daniels told The Wichita Eagle. “I think it’s awesome. I’m really excited. It’s kind of crazy to think one tweet could make this happen.”
A spokesperson for Dr. Pepper said, “We are always monitoring social media to see what our fans are saying about us and how they are expressing their love for Dr. Pepper. She had a really creative tweet about just needing a Dr. Pepper fountain installed at her house. She thought that would make her life easier based on the amount she was drinking. We put our own creative spin on it by building an actual fountain, not the one she might expect, and throwing her a party.”
