1. The Bomb
The city of Boston came unhinged after the discovery of a handfull of mysterious electronic circuit boards covered with LEDs stuck to the sides of buildings and under bridges yesterday. Traffic was diverted and the bomb squad was called in to destroy these "suspicious" devices at a cost of upwards of half a million dollars.
3. Guerilla Marketing
No one ever intended a bomb hoax as Governor Deval Patrick has suggested. These lights were part of a marketing campaign for the upcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie put together by marketing agency Interference Inc who co-opted the artistic, anti-advertising light display concept created by The Graffiti Research Lab.
4. Incriminating Evidence
Peter Berdovsky and Sean Stevens, contracted employees of Interference Inc, were arrested for their part in the instalation of the devices. They were most likely implicated because Berdovsky posted video online of himself and Stevens sticking them up onto anything they could reach with a long pole.
Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of Cartoon Network, is apparently accepting responsiblity for the ad campaign, going so far as to air a public apology during their popular Adult Swim programming., not during Aqua Teen, though.
