History’s Most Outrageous Court Cases

20. Beer Goggles

Drinking too much is risky business. A few drinks too many can anyone attractive. People think that beer is clearly to blame in these situations. One man claimed that beer led to other misleading images.


In 1991, Richard Overton sued Budweiser for false advertising. He claim that one advertisement showed attractive women appearing as the men in the ad drank Budweiser. When he drank the beer in real life, beautiful women did not appear, so he decided to sue the beer company for mental injury, emotional distress, and financial loss for purchasing the beer. The case was dismissed, unsurprisingly.
