Two people were arrested for disorderly conduct when a publicity stunt went awry.The men were hired by a marketing firm to place electronic light boxes throughout Boston and nine other cities including Chicago (see TRIBUNE).
The 1-foot tall signs resembled a circuit board, with protruding wires and batteries. Most depicted a boxy, cartoon character giving passersby the finger -- a more obvious sight when darkness fell.

Great Job Time-Warner! Not only do you think you can use the public way for your commercial gain but you think its ok to flash an obscene gesture to any passerby including children. Criminal charges have been set in motion lets hope civil proceeding also are considered.
