If you saw a huge plane flying around followed by 2 fighter jets how would you feel?
TERRIFIED! Watch this

On Monday morning, an Air Force One look-a-like and fighter planes flew very low and very loudly over New York City and ground zero. This was just to get pictures of Air Force One flying over New York and near the statue of liberty and what not. New York City was not notified of this at all. So, seeing as how the World Trade center fell under attack several years ago, people are going to think, when they hear loud planes flying near buildings, that they are under attack. This lead to buildings being evacuated, emergency hotlines being blown up, and many angry people. Mayor Bloomberg was outraged by the fact that he was not notified and that something of the sort was actually allowed to happen. President Obama was said to be furious about the matter, but it just seems to me that if one of his aides had the idea in his head that the President would have known about it, and hopefully not let it happen. Come on, lets not scare this country like that again!

Doesn't it look like its about to fly into the building?

People were scared out of their minds. I hope that it was worth it to have a nice picture of Air Force One. I mean, are there not enough pictures of the President’s plane?

Later on Monday, The White House issued an apology for the incident. The New York times has a story on the apology and peoples reactions to what was considered the next 9/11


In my Intro to PR class we watched a TV show, WKRP in Cincinnati, to help learn a little bit about promotions. In this very funny episode of the show, the radio station manager, Mr. Carlson, feels that he is not doing anything for the station at all. So, he comes up with a “brilliant” plan in order to promote the station and basically give himself something to do. He thinks up the plan and immediately decides to act on it. He uses two of the people on the staff to help him with it, but he never actually tells them what is going on, and totally leaves the rest of the crew out of it. Since Thanksgiving day is coming up, he decided he wanted to buy 20 turkeys for what everyone thought would be some sort of give away. Well, it ended up being anything but a give away. He threw the turkeys out of a flying helicopter over a mall parking lot. He did this because he just assumed that turkeys could fly, and they wouldn’t just dramatically hit the ground. Mr. Carlson made a big mistake with this promotion from the get go. He did not research anything about the turkeys so therefore he did not know they would not fly, he didn’t incorporate the right people for the job, and he left everything as one big secret. No part of his promotional was oraganized, and it showed because of how it ended.

domlogocolorDomino’s recently suffered what could definitely be considered horrible publicity. After the video hit the nation on youtube, people were instantly disgusted and shocked, and naturally did not want to eat at Domino’s anymore. So, the President of Domino’s made his own video to up on youtube with an apology and addressing the situation. Domino’s also set up a Twitter account, seeing as how Twitter is definitely a fast and effective way for everyone to hear about it or see it. At the time of the article I read, Domino’s already had 1200 followers and are openly addressing the issue to the people. Poor Domino’s, there are some sick people out there!

I am in utter shock after watching and dicussing in my intro class what has recently happened at a Dominos pizza in North Carolina! There were two dominos employees that decided to make a “funny” video and put it up on the internet for everyone to see. This particular guy and girl filmed themselves sticking food up their nose then placing the contaminated food on people’s sandwiches and also “passing gas” on the sandwich meat, using that as well. This vulgar video surfaced to millions of people, and was constantly circulating on the news. The two claimed that it was just meant to be a joke and that the sandiches were never actually delivered to anyone to eat. But, really, what part of that is funny?!

Finally, I saw where the two FORMER employees turned themselves in and could face up to a year in jail if convicted for food contamination. This is by far one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen and even heard about. It is definitely the least funny “prank” (which I’m not still fully convinced it was actually just a prank) I’ve ever heard about.

I honestly do not think that I will ever eat at Dominos again. I realize that just because it happened at one place doesn’t mean its going to happen at all the other Dominos around. But it even makes me question anywhere I eat. It grosses me out to think that I could be eating something so disgusting and have absolutely not clue about it.

Unfortunately the video is no longer up on youtube for me to post (A good thing for dominos) be here is a rather humorous response to the initial video. I think many, myself included, had this same response (but maybe with a little bit different language!)

On the latest episode of Britain’s got Talent, a lady whom everyone thought was going to be dreadful, blew everyone away. Gorgeous voice, love love her!! YOU GO GIRL! 🙂
