Zebro on Boston's Aqua Teen Blinking Bomb Scare



Somebody has been watching a little bit too much of the new 24 series methinks.

The things that shut down Boston today, because everyone assumed these blinking things must be bombs, were in fact part of a marketing campaign by a Turner Broadcasting company,

... in 10 cities in support of Adult Swim's animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. They have been in place for two to three weeks in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia...

... says NBC11.com.

See Zebro's account above.

Turner said "oops".

Thanks for the video...Bur still Boston's overreaction to this ranks about as high on the stupidity meter as the incident involving those Super Mario question mark ("?") blocks in that small town that those girls put up that led to a similar scare (though on a smaller scale).

I only heard about the incident on the radio and read about it on-line. Did they show pictures of the devices on television early on?
