Dang it. I SOOO wanted this story to be true…as long as no one actually got hurt of course. It just goes to show that if you put your message in front of people who are already receptive to hearing what you have to say – they are more likely to go along with it, without giving its validity a second thought. As communicators, we have to understand how powerful tool that is…and remember that with great power, comes great responsibility. BEEP-BEEP!! Now where did that FREE! pile of bird seed disappear to?
A viral story about a car crashing into a Road Runner cartoon-style painted tunnel seemed too humorous to prompt any fact-checking.
