“The future belongs to crowds.” (Don Delillo)
I was listening to Jim and Margerie on 96.9 wtkk, boston this morning and a good story came up. I guess Oprah offered all that were interested a free grilled chicken coupon to be redeemed at any KFC within 2 weeks. What happened? It seems that people just went bat-shit and dropped everything they were doing to get this free $3.99 deal! Pandamonium, but free is free. Tells you the state of our nation, when ANYTHING free is chased after with reckless abandon.
A good video here which really fleshes out the whole KFC scene.
