United Breaks Guitars Part II

Back in early July, Halifax musician Dave Carroll released a song and video about his experiences with United Airlines trashing his guitar on a flight to Chicago. The catchy country number and hysterical video took off virally, and soon Carroll found himself being interviewed by CBC, CNN, Fox News and dozens of smaller media outlets in between. And Carroll even got an apology from United Airlines.

A few days ago Carroll and his band Son of Maxwell released their second song and video (of three) in the "United Breaks Guitars" series. This song is more of a jazzy tune, with an oom-pah-pah/dixieland feel. And the video is equally funny. Enjoy!

You can purchase "United Breaks Guitars" parts 1 and 2 on iTunes or on the Sons of Maxwell website.

That is so catchy! I'm not sure how I missed out on this story but it's really funny. Good on him.

I love how he names Ms. Irlwig in the songs (She's the real life United Airlines rep that denied his claim).
