Social Media har makt - Se Dave Carrolls Youtube-video som kritiserar United Airlines

En protestvideo mot United Airlines har setts av tre miljoner på en vecka. Dave Carrolls låt United breaks guitars är en protestsång mot flygbolaget United Airlines sedan hans gitarr gått sönder i bagagehanteringen och flygbolaget vägrat ersätta honom för reparationen.

United Breaks Guitars
United Airlines Song Background (short version)

In the spring of 2008, Sons of Maxwell were traveling to Nebraska for a one-week tour and my Taylor guitar was witnessed being thrown by United Airlines baggage handlers in Chicago. I discovered later that the $3500 guitar was severely damaged. They didn’t deny the experience occurred but for nine months the various people I communicated with put the responsibility for dealing with the damage on everyone other than themselves and finally said they would do nothing to compensate me for my loss. So I promised the last person to finally say “no” to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world. United: Song 1 is the first of those songs. United: Song 2 has been written and video production is underway. United: Song 3 is coming. I promise.
