“United Breaks Guitars”

18 Jul

My boss told me about this funny song/video that is currently up on  YouTube and I thought I would use my minuscule amount of influence on the internet to spread the word.

You can read the full story (or just listen to the song) but here is a quick rundown:

United Airlines destroyed a guys Taylor guitar at O’Hare International in Chicago. United refused to pay damages done to the guitar even though the passengers of the plane SAW the runway workers throwing the guitars (and other luggage) on the tarmac. Owner of guitar promised that he would write three songs and post videos on the internet for the world to see.

Great song. Bottom line, this little guy now has been talked about on all the big “news” networks and is closing in on 3 million hits on his YouTube video. Now United has come crawling to him begging for forgiveness. Watch the video. Share it with your friends. Don’t fly United. Period.
