Aqua-Gate

It’s almost inconceivable that a viral campaign for a silly, animated movie (Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters) could result in a scandal (Aqua-Gate) that would rock the nation (okay, mostly Boston) at its foundations.

Yet, that’s exactly what happened back in February when two young men with something to prove and an obsession with hairstyles from the 50s set out to cover the city of Boston with lightboard depictions of 8-bit aliens.

On tonight’s Loop we’ll be talking to the two men that started it all, Sean Stevens & Peter Berdovsky and America will finally get the chance to hear their side of the story.

Is Ignignokt a terrorist?

There are two ways to look at this whole Aqua Teen Hunger Force Boston Terror scare: one, Adult Swim is f**ked or two, Adult Swim is going to be more free publicity than they ever imagined.

Certainly either way, this is change the way companies look at guerilla marketing campaigns and if Adult Swim and the two artists emerge from this scandal unscathed, well...they totally win.

And if someone does end up doing jail time, the two dudes who pulled this off still totally win on the points earned on their press conference this morning alone.

Tonight on The Loop, our experts including Michael Schneider from Variety and Peter Shankman, author of Can We Do That? will discuss what all this nonsense means and if Ignignokt is indeed, a bad guy.

Turns out that (shockingly) San Francisco is not as tight-assed about the Aqua-Gate viral marketing scheme as Boston.

Go figure.
