United Breaks Guitars…the Sequel!

Thursday, August 20, 2009| by Will Chen

In case you missed David Carroll’s YouTube viral sensation United Breaks Guitars, here’s the back story. Man buys ticket on United Airlines and checks his treasured Taylor guitar. United breaks his guitar and, per their policy, only offers to pay an extremely small claim to cover the damages.  Man says if United doesn’t pay up, he’ll write three songs about his ordeal and publish them on YouTube. United laughs…

But they’re not laughing now.  After the nearly 5 million views the first video received, United offered a settlement which David refused recommending they donate it to charity instead.  So, without further a due…song number 2 in the United Breaks Guitars trilogy…
