Video Game Company's Awful PR Stunt Predictably Backfires & A BOMB SQUAD Has To Clean Up The Mess!

ubisoft watch dogs bomb squad pr stunt gone wrong

Well, that's one way to get people talking about your new product!

Trying to create a buzz for their new video game, game publisher Ubisoft settled upon the worst PR stunt in the history of ever.

Watch Dogs, their new action-adventure game, was shipped to reviewers and media outlets inside of a small, unmarked safe with a keypad on it. Accompanying the package was a "suspicious" letter that advised the recipient to check his or her voicemail.

Wait, what!? That sounds like protocol for sending out ransom notes, not video games!!! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

Lo-and-behold, an employee at Australia Square received the package and didn't know precisely how to react. He wasn't able to access any voicemail message, so he tried to open it via keypad! That only made the package start to BEEP!

So, he did what anyone in his situation would do — he called the mother-effing bomb squad!!!

Rush Limbaugh Experiences A Bomb Scare!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooOops!Media Minute

rush limbaugh bomb scare

He may not be most peoples' our fave person ever, but we're glad he wasn't hurt.

Yesterday afternoon, a bomb squad arrived at Rush Limbaugh's house in Palm Beach, Fl, and they did a sweep of the home after "a suspicious package" was discovered.

We're hearing that Rush's security team contacted authorities when they found the package, but police concluded that it was not a bomb…even though it had "an electronic plaque and wires."

Apparently, the package was sent by a person in Pennsylvania, who has apologized for the confusion, but has also said that it wasn't a bomb.

Stay safe, Rush!
