For those of you that haven’t seen this hilarious video, check it out:

The only bad part about watching this video was what I was tempted to watch in the “related videos” section, entitled “United Airlines Sucks.” Check out that video:

Gosh, that girl makes me want to throw up on so many levels….

    Thanks to Dave Carroll, my own claim against Northwest Airlines may see settlement. Last month, Northwest busted my $2000 mountain dulcimer while en route to a gig. Some of my fans suggested I write a song about the ordeal and "United Breaks Guitars" was posted in the interim. With a nod to Dave as well as Tom Paxton (whose "Thank You Republic Airlines" covers similar territory), my tune "Only A Northwest Song" was also posted...

I'm hoping that more people decide to do this sort of thing; maybe we'll see a change in airline policy towards musicians and their instruments. Thanks, Dave, for giving this ongoing dialogue a real shot in the arm!

    I'm on a lawyer email group and turns out the guy who did this video is a member's relative.

    Seems he's getting a lot of attention and CNN contacted him about doing a story on it.

    Also, the guy says this was only the 1st of 3 planned videos...so stay tuned

    Thanks for the pointer on the United Breaks Guitars video --- but did you have to forward that whiny chick too. And for the record --- 1:00 am east coast time is still just 10:00 pm left coast time. And did she somehow get to London the next morning? M&Ms anyone?
