    “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” cartoon publicity devices, seen around Boston on Wednesday, caused a security scare that shut down bridges and subways."

    "BOSTON - Several illuminated electronic devices planted at bridges and other spots in Boston threw a scare into the city Wednesday in what turned out to be a publicity campaign for a late-night cable cartoon. Most if not all of the devices depict a character giving the finger.

    Peter Berdovsky, 27, of Arlington, and Sean Stevens, 28, of Charlestown, were each charged Wednesday night with one count of placing a hoax device and one count of disorderly conduct, state Attorney General Martha Coakley said.

    The two men worked together to place the devices, Coakley said in a news release announcing Stevens' arrest.

    Highways, bridges and a section of the Charles River were shut down and bomb squads were sent in before authorities declared the devices were harmless.

    Turner Broadcasting, a division of Time Warner Inc. and parent of Cartoon Network, later said the devices were part of a promotion for the TV show “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” a surreal series about a talking milkshake, a box of fries and a meatball."

    that is stupid... but fear and stupidity go hand in hand anyways.


    however, that show is so terrible, i hope they take it off to cover the costs of paying to get those people paid to do the job, OUT of jail.

    I was going to link to http://www.adultswim.com/
    but they took thier web page down and put up the fallowing message

    [​IMG]

    to see the site and look at the show etc...
    http://www.adultswim.com/index2.html


    I still don't see the liability here short of the goverment and the people
    over reacting to something so harmless.

    IMO: thier message should read sorry (idiots) since when are "lite brites" wich
    are basically what these are equil to. Childs toys .... I can't begain to fathom
    why on gods green earth would they think them bombs???

    ATHF sucks...i agree with judas.


    It's like someone with the munchies wrote a show while tripping on acid......"oh look...a talking meatball!"


    As for over-reacting......why were they placed in bomb-like locations, such as "under sides of bridges" and base structures and things.....???


    I HATE guerilla marketting liek that...sony's graffiti was jsut as bad

    What is pretty frightening though, is that now extremeist groups may come up with actual bombs in the same manner. And the authorities may not react before it is too late.... "Don't cry wolf" anyone? :uhoh:
