I came across a viral video called United Breaks Guitars that I thought was really good. Dave Carroll, a musician in the band, Sons of Maxwell, created a viral video with his band after he experience an unfortunate incident with United Airlines. Because his guitar was broken during a flight from Halifax to Chicago, Dave expressed his upset and despair by sending United Airlines a very strong message. The video has over 3.3 million views and more than 24,000 ratings. It was also picked up by Fox News and other news stations.
I thought a blog post about this situation was perfect for my MusicQuench blog, so I posted it there. I invite you to check out Dave’s social media story and how you need to be prepared when social media works and suddenly millions of people are noticing you!
