CNN is reporting the city of Boston reacted to outdoor installments placed by Cartoon Network to promote its Adult Swim series “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” by calling a bomb-threat. The ads consisted of an electronic circuit board with LED lights in the shape of one of the show’s characters. In DIY fashion, the units had a home assembly appearance with exposed wires making them appear of questionable origin. The devices were placed in several locations in several cities: Boston; New York; Los Angeles; Chicago; Atlanta; Seattle; Portland, Oregon; Austin, Texas; San Francisco; and Philadelphia. The light-up characters only raised a scare in and around Boston.
