From Lola, a tipster: “I saw a Brooklyn Vegan thing about it. Said it started at 5 so I just went down there. Over. I got a button that says ‘I was almost captured by MGMT.’ There were a few other disappointed fans. On my way home along South 2nd St. I saw a circle of hipsterized high schoolers flirting with their buttons on. And I thought, twitter, you have failed me. You have failed me hard.”
She took these pics, first of their sidewalk chalk writing, “MGMT WAS HERE 4.13.10,” and second, the button. That date is the day their album drops. Not to be confused with the day their testicles drop. This “stunt” was lame, MGMT. Muchos lamos.
Update: And here’s a report from someone in the van. “I was captured, we drove around listening to congratulations then they gave us tshirts. The album was surfy psychedelic.” He continued, “it was literally a white van with a random limo driver, two girls running the whole thing and me +8 other people that showed up.”
