So, Beantown sorta flips out a few months back (not that we blame them!) at little lite-brite signs depicting Aqua Teen Hunger Force characters flipping the general populace off. City grinds to a halt -- TBS, on behalf of "Adult Swim" -- pays a nice lump of dough -- $2 million.
In San Francisco, the signs were posted too, evidently, but we didn't really seem to notice or care. Regardless, we get a consolation prize of $85,000.
The lesson? Become more paranoid about urban-based marketing, then get all soap-boxy and preachy in the aftermath*, and maybe we too can squeeze more cash from pot head-oriented broadcasting affiliates. Are you listening, Heather Fong? Gavin Newsom?
*Again, not that we really blame them!
