Probably Not The Best Idea To Fake A Campus Shooting Alert To Pimp Out Your Company


This UNC student and entrepreneur had the right idea when attempting to get his start-up out to the masses. The execution? Eh, not so much. For some reason it’s not a wise idea to create a fake UNC alert email and send an urgent message to the entire student body akin to an shooting emergency. Just ask anyone from Virginia Tech if this was the right way to go about promoting his company.

Also, bro, pretty sure your idea has already been done. It’s called Facebook or previously THE FACEBOOK. Might want to rethink your corporate strategy in the war room before putting all of Chapel Hill on lockdown.
