20 People Shot Trying To Bag Free LG G2

In a less than ideal start to LG’s marketing efforts for its new G2 smartphone, twenty people were injured at a recent promotional event in South Korea.


According to the Korea Times, the event in Seoul saw balloons filled with coupons redeemable for a free LG G2 released into the air.

But LG’s plans backfired when some individuals brandishing BB guns attempted to shoot down the balloons, leading to a reported 20 attendees being inadvertently shot.

According to the report, LG has apologized to the injured and said it’ll cover their medical costs.

Similar events planned around Korea have since been canceled “due to safety concerns.”

I much prefer a good old tombola….

    Slashdot sensationalized the story with the headline “20 People Shot With BB Guns At LG G2 Promotional Event,” but that didn’t happen. Apparently a score of people did suffer injuries, but those were incurred as a result of the general tumult.
