Who wants to talk about about the advertising campaign gone wrong?

The skinny: About fifteen LED signs were placed around Boston on Jan 31st as part of a guerilla advertising campaign for the new ATHF movie. Boston, having nothing better to do but defend their city from these signs, put the city on red alert and blew some of them up. Then they arrested the creators of the show.

Hilarious and sad at the same time. Only a very stupid person would associate this with terrorism

Someone actually said: "It had a very sinister appearance," Coakley told reporters. "It had a battery behind it, and wires." Pathetic

I could write an essay on why I'm not suprised Boston, and no other city, freaked out about this. First of all, after 7pm, Boston goes to sleep. I've seen more night life in a retirement home. Second, New York might be full of crazies, but most of them trickle down into Boston and breed there. When you flip off a New Yorker, that is slightly below a warm "Hello". Flipping the bird still means something to Boston. So when they saw this shiney little sign shooting the finger, heads started to roll. Because Boston has nothing better to do. They had a Tea Party there a while back, and the city has been dead ever since.

Boston responded by blowing these signs up. If you park your car and don't feed the meter, Boston will blow your car up. Didn't clean up after your dog? Boom! Both of you are blown up. I think the whole thing is hillarious.

Jay, that site you just linked is very, very special.

I went on ebay and the actual signs are being auctioned away for thousands. If I had one, I'd put it in my window so all the normal people would think I'm a terrorist, and all the geeks would think I'm cool. It'd be like advertising not having a life. And I feel like bright, shiney lights might attract women or something. Maybe my concept of wooing still needs work...

rofl...i wonder how boston will react if i accidently left my bag in a train.
i can see it now:
me: "faark, i left my bag at the station, wait up ill get it..."
Meanwhile at the station, "ZOMG a bomb, call 911!!! BURN IT!!!"

Yeah, they are ripping you off with the auction, but who, when they see something cool around the city, decides to go up and steal something? I mean, obviously the people who are holding these auctions, but I tend to admire from a far rather than claiming for my own. How much would it suck if you were arrested while taking one down, charged as putting one up? I don't have enough laundry quarters to post bail...
