SOFIA, Bulgaria -- The latest vending marketing stunt making headlines is a machine that rewarded people in Bulgaria with a free beer for doing nothing.

The "Amstel Pause" machine encouraged thirsty passersby to stand still in front of the machine and push a button to start a timer. The machine dispensed a free beer if they held their pose for three minutes.
