This is so fucking ridiculous, I have no words for its ridiculousness. Is there something severely wrong with the authorities in Boston? And they complain that Turner Broadcasting didn't step in sooner... is there any way of knowing whether they even had any CLUE what was happening, especially if the lights had been in place for weeks and were just now causing a freak-out of mass proportions? They make Adult Swim out to be some evil empire, wtf? ;_;
I love this, though:
"Scaring an entire region, tying up the T and major roadways, and forcing first responders to spend 12 hours chasing down trinkets instead of terrorists is marketing run amok"
OMGTERRORISTS. Didn't they find it extremely obvious after giving the first light a cursory examination, that it was NOT a BOMB?
I bet the Adult Swim crew is laughing its collective arse off at this debacle. Hope no one gets fired over it, though, or that Turner does anything hasty. Adult Swim's advertising has always been beyond cool, wouldn't want something like this to fuck things up for them.
