Remember the band of idiots from Orange County who blocked rush hour traffic so they could play their crappy single on the 101 freeway? Here’s a reminder. Anyway, they just got hit with felony conspiracy charges for their guerilla marketing scheme media whoredom.
“This was not a matter involving free speech or lawful protest,” said LA County District Attorney Steve Cooley. “This was a well-orchestrated commercial stunt perpetrated by these defendants and their accomplices with no concern for the lives or well-being of thousands of innocent victims who were caught up in the prank. I hope this filing sends a strong message of deterrence. This type of dangerous behavior will not be tolerated.”
No word on if Cooley will seek to substitute prison time for a Singapore-style public caning. We here at FBLA fully support the endeavor.
