On Thanksgiving Day in Long Island, NY, a group of wild turkeys wandered into town, strutted their stuff, and left single-file. As far as law enforcement could determine no prank was involved, reincarnation was not ruled out.
Implications - Viral stunts such as these do much more than garner a couple of giggles; they signify a shift in today's humor and the habits of the digitized consumer. Though many companies and fame-starved consumers use the online platform for profit, many are simply looking for a way to express themselves, and often anonymously. It seems that anonymous stunts are more well-received than those that are planned, serving as a cautionary tale to companies looking to expand online to never seem too strategic or planned.
