United breaks guitars

Spot the unhappy passenger in this music video, written about a (now deceased) guitar that flew on United Airlines. For bonus points, explain the sombreros.

OK, I think all complaints should be sung, it is really cool. I really just think the sombreros make the whole thing. Sounds like a vigilante song. Get a rope:)

Those United workers are obviously former Gibson workers that never made it out of Kalamazoo with the company.

Ooops, don't tell yer dad I said that.

BTW, I just heard on NPR that united is offering this guy like $2000 to settle for the broken guitar and to stop singing this song. That makes me even happier!

Wow - NPR coverage too - I can see why they're anxious to make him stop!

It's kind of a shame, because I do assume if/when he decides to take their money, pulling the videos will probably be necessary.

I would probably consider holding out for more cash, but I'm a bad person.

He did issue a statement yesterday that he isn't taking the cash and there is a Part 2 forthcoming.  :)


And everybody knows sombreros rule.  Nothing says getting at an airline like Canadians in Mexican hats.
