Gawker’s August 4 quote about the American Girl Doll union protests provides this post titled: “Every time you cross our picket line a kitten explode.” Funniest blog post title I’ve ever seen. You don’t even have to read the post to appreciate it, although the photo does capture the absurdity of the event.
Here’s some video on the event courtesy of Gawker. I don’t mind “playing this PR nightmare forward” since the folks at American Girl Doll have sucked ridiculous amounts of money out of us for my daughter.
Two video-related thoughts:
- Viral video is a way to get a tiny protest into a national scandal, isn’t it?
- What happens if the news outlet ask YouTube to pull these? Do all of our links die? Guess so.
