‘Suspicious Packages’ That Paralyzed Boston Part of Cartoon Network Marketing Campaign

‘A suspicious package alert that shut down downtown Boston Wednesday afternoon was actually part of an elaborate marketing campaign by the Cartoon Network to spark interest in its “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” show.

After state and local officials said they were launching an investigation into a series of “suspicious packages” found around the city, the Cartoon Network released a statement saying the packages were magnetic lights that pose no danger.

“They are part of an outdoor marketing campaign in 10 cities in support of Adult Swim’s animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” the statement said.’
