Well, what’s better marketing than having a celebrity arrested using your product and helping land it in Fortune Magazine, CNN, Rolling Stone, etc…?
“Rapper Wiz Khalifa said he was riding a ‘Hoverboard’ at the Los Angeles International Airport over the weekend when authorities stopped him and held him to the ground.” – CNN : Wiz : “I was restrained for riding a Hoverboard“
A few of the publications are still trying to figure out what a “Hoverboard” really is…Fortune Magazine called it a “auto-balancing scooter”.
Yea, that’s a sexy name, Fortune writers. Let’s stick with THAT! (Disclaimer, I’ve subscribed to Fortune Magazine literally my entire life, so I have nothing but good things to say about them usually!)
But Wiz is right when he tweeted, “All because I didn’t want to ditch the [technology] everyone will be using in the next 6 months. Do what you want kids“
Glad to see the future is here and the TSA is completely unprepared. Why is that not a surprise?
