So you have a message that you want the world to hear, huh? And you don’t have $5 million to pay for a 30 second spot at the Super Bowl? Well there is apparently another way to get your message out to the masses. Just hijack the microphone when the linebacker for the winning team is about to give his press conference.
Now I am not suggesting this as the primary way for messengers to tell their tales, in fact, I strongly discourage this method. But Brooklyn resident Matthew Mills wasn’t listening and he got arrested for his troubles.
Mills played the role of a member of the press. He had a press pass and was allowed in the room with the Super Bowl players. When Seattle Linebacker Malcolm Smith sat down for his interview, Mills ran to the podium, grabbed the microphone away from Smith and said, “Investigate 9/11 — 9/11 was perpetrated by people in our own government.”
Mills was arrested and charged with trespassing. He has since been released. His message… heard.
