Kenneth McCollom says the suspects are three drama students who were shooting a commercial for a contest sponsored by the soft drink maker called “24 Seconds to Save the World.”
Just when we get past the cheerleader beatdowns, the netherworld reels us back in, courtesy of a couple of would-be Michael Bays. (Honestly, what a thing to would-be.) This will not help combat the old Polk is a nuthouse meme. Sigh.
Here’s the contest in question. The winner gets his or her commercial played on the “24” season finale. You too can blow up/maim swarthy terrorist types for entertainment.
On a serious note, I do hope cooler heads prevail here. Dangerous and stupid yes, but there appears to be little intent to harm. Our jails already cost too much and house too many people for these guys to face conviction on second degree felonies.
H/T Matt Wengerd, or somebody in the Twitscape I thought was Matt Wengerd.
