Dr. Dre taking it slow in new Dr Pepper spot

Dr. Dre is the latest fake doctor contributing his name value to Dr Pepper. In Dre's case, he's also contributing the first officially released beats from the much-delayed Detox, his album that's due later this year, until it gets pushed back again. Nevertheless, Dre's imaginary medical credentials lend weight to his claim that "scientific tests prove when you drink Dr Pepper slow, the 23 flavors taste even better." And he's not alone. His colleagues Dr. J, Dr. Frasier Crane, and Gene "Dr. Love" Simmons (ew) all agree with him. Dr. Who and Dr. Wagner Jr. couldn't be reached for comment.
