I wish


I wish we had this account. That marketing company got more free pub than I could ever ask for.

Except you'd be facing some kind of homeland security domestic terrorism charges and being sued by the state of MA and city of Boston to recover costs related to investigating this case. I'm not sure it would be worth whatever "free publicity" they got. In fact I don't even know the name of the company that Turner Broadcasting hired to execute this guerilla mktg campaign now even after all the coverage this story got and I'm pretty sure a lot of companies who might have considered hiring them are looking the other way after seeing all the trouble it caused (warranted or not).

I'll still take it.
No charges will stick. And if those s=duses who run the marketing company are nice they will flip and spin this pub like they were R Kelly.

And Turner can be mad at paying the $1million fine but how many people know about Aqua Teen Hunger Force now?
They marketing plan for the full length now has a built in angle.

The crazy thing is that this plays into the storyline of the Mooninites. For those who actually watch the show

But who's gonna pay your legal costs before the charges eventually get dropped (assuming they DO eventually get dropped and "no charges stick" like you think)? Not Turner, I promise you.

FYI: "Turner Broadcasting and a New York marketing firm agreed on Monday to pay $2 million in compensation for a "guerrilla" advertising campaign that sparked fears of terrorism in the Boston area last week." (Click here for more.)

Another FYI:

Controversy doesn’t boost ‘Aqua Teen’ ratings - Blinking electronic device promotion does little to increase viewers. (MSNBC.com: Link)

This is your good old intern, this is my field your touching on "guerrilla" advertising is the best. Just goes to show you have to be aware of your surrounding. And we're here to push your buttons, these people have crazy accounts. So the sky is the limited. Trust these ideas a very well planned out, it may have gone down like a mess up to the public. But really that's the reaction they were looking for, more viewer for their show. I wish I was on that team to. Peace Nae
