Welcome Aboard – Please Take A Seat While We Throw Your Shit Around

United Airlines messed with the wrong guy. The airline’s baggage handlers damaged musician Dave Carroll‘s $3,500 Taylor guitar in the spring of 2008, but refused to compensate him for their mistake. Carroll didn’t want to let United get away with their wrongdoing, so he wrote a song chronicling his experience and uploaded it to YouTube. A week after the video’s release, he’s already had over 2.5 million views. Now that this has turned into a PR nightmare for the company, United has changed their stance and is offering to pay for the guitar, an offer the artist is saying he won’t accept. Instead he hopes they will donate the money to a charity. No word back from the company if they’ll comply. Either way though, well done Mr. Carroll.
