Cartoon Network Causes Terror Scare In Boston

"In an example of the risks associated with viral advertising in public spaces, an outdoor campaign by Turner Broadcasting to promote the Cartoon Network's late-night cult hit "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" triggered bomb scares and the closing of two bridges in Boston on Wednesday. Boston residents reported long traffic jams and mass transit delays as police crews searched for explosives."
Two guys from the Cartoon Network MARKETING FIRM got arrested for this stunt. Crazy. See all the fallout here.
