Dr Pepper pays pro player

Tom Taylor is the first pro gamer to appear on Dr Pepper bottles.

The day has finally come when gamers can turn to their parents and tell them, "I can make living playing video games, and I can get a major product endorsement." Just ask Tom Taylor, professional Halo 3 gamer.

Known as TSquared in gaming circles, this 21 year old will be on 175 million 20-ounce Dr Pepper bottles from January through April. Exactly what he's going to make from this deal wasn't stated; however, he does have a lucrative three-year, $250,000 contract to play video games.
