In a gleeful act of vengeance, Alec Empire has set Sony against itself. The Atari Teenage Riot frontman recently posted on his tumblr that he was donating the fee collected from a Sony Vita advert featuring ‘Black Flags’ to FreeAnons, a support network for Anonymous members seeking prosecution. Says Empire:
“…when the request for the Sony Vita ad landed on my lap,
I put ‘Black Flags’ into it…it was all hectic and they okayed it. We needed to tie up a few lose ends on this, until it became unstoppable, that’s why we had to wait to reveal that Atari Teenage Riot donate their $$$ to http://freeanons.org. I cross checked they can’t stop the track from appearing in the OWS online clips of
ATR/Anonymous etc… which makes it even more fun.”
LOL indeed. Check the full post here, and watched the wounding ad below.
