United Breaks Guitars

I was eavesdropping on a conversation earlier when I heard two people talk about this Youtube video of a song called "United Breaks Guitars." Based on what they were saying, it sounded right up my alley.

Basically, a country singer named Dave Carroll flew United and saw the baggage handlers toss his guitars and break them. He tried to get United to pay, but allegedly they weren't that easy to deal with. So he did what any musician would do: he made a video.

Based on the five million hits this guy got, I'd say this is a pretty popular video.
