I would imagine that April Fools prank generated at least a few hundred thousand bucks worth of free, positive advertising, and reinforced WJ's brand in the minds of everyone who saw it, especially compared to the sort of airline stories we've seen in recent weeks.

I had about 2 dozen Google Alerts on that release from various Canadian and US newspapers.

It was perfect fodder for slow Sunday evening newscasts from coast to coast.

Global BC gave the story about 90 seconds on the Sunday evening news. What does 90 seconds of free advertising cost these days on the #1 news broadcast in BC?

Since HighT5 elected to remove his comment, thus placing my response out of context, I will attempt to paraphrase his post here and repair the thread.

Quote:
I don't know what you mean by bad attention. It looks like a pretty good advertising ploy to me.


I'm not referring to the videos, but to the attitude of the person who posted them and his need for attention by posting a video he admits to stealing from a thread that had already established a discussion on the topic.

Wow... all he was trying to do was get a couple laughs out of you! :shock:
May I suggest a little more fibre in your diet... :roll:

He did get a laugh out of me, the first time. I even posted that I thought it was funny. Then he went all snotty and hissy on me, and reposted the video from another thread and rode another poster's coat tails just for the attention. I don't tolerate that crap well, my 2 year olds have more respect than that.

Now that your postings are the only ones still here, you come across as a bit of a wiener. :shock: Might be better to just delete your postings as well. :lol: :lol:

Let me see...1 of 14 posts have been retracted, 5 of 14 are mine, that means there are 8 other posts in this thread still. Nice math skills, can you calculate a proper fuel burn too?

Then I've succeeded at my goal. Eat me with ketchup and mustard.

Sorry, my apologies, for the slower members on the board i should have been a little more specific. Let me try again....

Since HighT5 edited his post, your comments just make you sound like a wiener :shock: . Maybe it's time you edited your comments as well. :o

Hope that helps....

I see no reason for me to edit my comments, they're still as valid as when I typed them. Besides, I have no doubt that the mods will be in here shortly to delete them anyways.
