You've seen that video of the man who's trying to brand a horse but instead gets a kick in the gut, right? Or the one of the woman being prematurely pulled off the pier by a speedboat? Apparently, so has Southwest Airlines, and they've decided to incorporate them into their new ad campaign. It seems they've overlayed new audio tracks and more current time stamps and then found actors to play the part of the videos' victims. The connection to airline savings is tenuous at best.

I saw them at AdCritic yesterday and decided that the writer's strike is finally being felt.

so are those videos considered to be in the public domain now? because from what i recall the original owners/victims haven't been found (unless...maybe they hired the real people :)
