The sad thing about this press release is that the event it’s promoting – 7Up’s launch of its new organic version – already happened or, for all we know, is still happening.

As part of its push to notify all would-be lemon-lime fizzy drinkers that all the unpronounceable chemical compounds will no longer be found on the ingredients label – unless they’re considered “all natural,” that is – the soft drink rounded up Ty Pennington to unveil a “2-3 story 7UP Natural Bottle” at Greeley Square (6th Ave and 34th Street).

Spectacle, we know. But after last year’s live billboard in Times Square, it takes a lot more to impress us. So that’s where these personalized notes from publicists come in:

FYI ????????
A $1 donation will be made to the Fresh Air Fund for every bottle of 7UP 100% Natural sampled today???????Plus you can stalk Ty Pennington and gawk at a 24foot tree shaped like a 7UP bottle.

We’d rather wait for late November for a 65-foot-plus version of an actual tree. The full carbonated release, after the jump.
