Not Politics...or is it?

This is a question for those of you living back east and especially the Boston area.

Just wanted to hear what you thought about Turner's publicity stunt for Aqua Teen Hunger Force (which my son says never solves any mysteries). Don't look at me, I have no clue.

Were any of you or anyone you know directly affected by this? Thanks

I heard all about it!!

The funny thing is, they were in place for over two weeks before anyone spotted anything.

Doesn't that make you wonder about security?!?!? :roll:

Brains in the company? What about the "leaders" who shut down part of the city because of lite brites?
Funny show though.

Wasn't too funny for Turner. Who ended up paying a million plus for the "publicity"!!!!

Maybe that's the brilliance of the plan. He only paid a million and got more coverage for his company than a 30 second advertising spot.

What's a million (a pretty cheap price to advertise world-wide) to a multi-billion dollar company?

Damn! I didn't hear about that. But I'm sure he got a nice severance package, although probably not as good as the Home Repo CEO.
