David Carroll and Goliath

Singer Dave Carroll watched from a window as a United Airlines employee tossed his Taylor guitar around like a ragdoll, breaking it. United, though acknowledging it happened, gave him a song and dance for nine months before telling him they were going to do nothing about it. Dave told United if they didn't pay he'd put out a series of three music videos about United and their service.

The first song came out a few days ago, and it's posted below. Consumerist follows up, saying that after seeing the video United has finally offered to pay for the damaged guitar. Now, though, Dave's almost ready with the second video, and has asked United to send the money to charity.

Check out the video. Maybe you'll become a fan.
