Woe to those unfortunate souls who work in the London offices of British Petroleum. An angry soul in Brooklyn is marshalling an army of like-minded souls and arming each man, woman and child with the most deadly of instrument — the vuvuzela — for an impromptu concert outside your building.
Writes Adam Quirk in his description of Vuvuzelas for BP:
BP is not feeling the pain they are causing in the Gulf. BP is spending millions on PR. In order to put a bit of public pressure on them, we plan to buy 100 vuvuzelas and hire 100 vuvuzela players off Craigslist to play in front of BP’s International Headquarters in London for a one-day flash mob.
Quirk has already managed to raise the $1,000 needed to purchase and ship the god-awful plastic noisemakers and hire people to play them — though I have a feeling there won’t be any need to hire out for this one.
The remaining pledges, which right now total over $2,100, are to be donated to the Center for Biological Diversity.
I’m just glad that BP’s not headquartered in NYC — or anywhere within 100 miles of NYC — because I have a feeling this might get loud.
