City-Wide Bomb Scare Spurred by Outdoor Placements

story.cartoon.adultswim.jpgCNN 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.
