Would you be willing to watch a 30-second advertisement on a vending machine to get a free drink?  According to a vending machine operator Apex Corp, soon, "thirsty Japanese customers will be able to drink coffee or other non-alcoholic beverages at a low price or even for free — as long as they watch a 30-second advertisement on the vending machines."

Apex said it expected to roll out the service to "turn its machines into a new medium for advertisers, who will pick up the partial or full cost of drinks" next month. Stats for Free Drink Vending Machines Trending: Older & Warm
