Anybody seen any of those signs on Ebay yet?
In the meantime, the 2 dolts in Boston are still collecting checks and laughing at the mess they caused.
What happened with the 2 freaks with the hair? Did they get fired or are charges still pending? They should be charged with being totally obnoxious, arrogant and stupid. Oh then they should be fired!
I hate Boston, and I really don't like to use that word.
This is dumb. Time Warner and Cartoon Network should have called out Boston (especially that boob of a mayor) for being ridiculous and subsequently told them where to shove it.
I am sure that he had to sign off on it?
Anything that unorthodox would have to go to a president of the network for approval.
I would be surprised if it had to be approved by the parent company.
Never underestimate a large business in CYA mode.
Human sacrifices still take place, but on a modernized level as this person has been degraded on the job market and it will cost him a piece of his life.
From an advertising perspective, the campaign was brilliant. Too bad the guy felt the need to step down.
Now, when is the head of the Snickers company going to clear out his desk?
Seems like nobody ever admits to getting fired anymore except celebrities.
Seems only appropriate that he'd be hit with a giant mallet... nyuk, nyuk, nyuk...
Hey! The buck has to stop somewhere. A big shot losing his job over an arrogant, presumptuous and insulting advertising campaign that inconvenienced thousands of ordinary people seems right to me. Actually, I would feel better if he were going to jail, too.
WTH is "guerilla marketing"?
Well that's dumb. That was just a Dumbocrat enclave (Beantown) out to mug a company for money with a flimsy excuse. Cartoon Network ran the same promotion in a bunch of other cities and nobody saw the revenue opp., until after Boston decided to sue.
I would have gone on the air and said the following...
To the people of Boston, You are morons. Complete and total morons. Those signs are up in 9 other major cities, and have been up in your city for 3 weeks now.
You just noticed them now? Great preparedness. And no other city has reacted like you. They see that these signs are no threat. But you, Boston, are morons.
Maybe they'll change the "Adult Swim". A bit too raunchy and stupid.
You'd think that, if anyone were resigning, it'd been some of the morons and twits running Boston.
