Was "Don't Tase Me, Bro!" a publicity stunt?
"Don't Tase Me, Bro!" has almost because become a punch-line to big joke. In just a few days, mostly everyone has seen the video or at least heard about University of Florida student Andrew Meyer getting zapped by campus police after interrupting a speech by Senator John Kerry.
Today, I was on the train in New York City and heard two college-aged guys poking and prodding at each other before one started screaming "Don't Tase Me, Bro!" leading to a hearty chuckled by both involved.
Being the publicity whore that I am, I must call Andrew Meyer out... it seems like this was big ole publicity stunt.
MSNBC is even quoting Meyer as telling cops, "I am not mad at you guys, you didn't do anything wrong, you were just trying to do your job" after they made a fool of him for everyone to see.
Meyer, a former sports reporter for his school newspaper, is known for doing outlandish things to get his name in the headlines. I bet he never thought he would make national headlines for his catch phrase "Don't Tase Me, Bro!"
Maybe Andrew should get the rights to that phrase!
