I DON’T LIKE MY CELL PHONE THAT MUCH

Posted by Tech Editor | August 19, 2013 | No Comments

Someone in the marketing department at LG had an idea to put vouchers to get a free phone in helium balloons, and then release them for a crowd to go chasing after. Small problem. Those phones are worth over $800, and the crowds that showed up were highly motivated. And by highly motivated I mean they showed up with BB guns and spears. The resulting chaos left 20 people injured and 7 sent to the hospital.  This reminds me of the great Turkey Drop Thanksgiving episode of WKRP.
