For those not familiar with the awesome story from a few weeks ago. As per Yahoo:
The flight attendant, identified as Steven Slater, asked the passenger to return to his seat. A “heated” exchange ensued, which culminated in Slater walking to the rear of the plane, where he grabbed the intercom. “To the passenger who called me a motherf***er, f*** you!” Slater yelled, passengers tell the New York Daily News. “I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.” He activated the emergency chute and slid away.
As more details emerged, it was reported that Slater grabbed a few Blue Moons (apparently new to JetBlue) for his slide down the chute and walk to wherever he subsequently got arrested. And as this blog points out, Blue Moon was the choice of Sgt. James Crowley when he had a get-together with President Obama (Bud Light) and Press Secretary Gibbs (Red Stripe) to clear the air after his arrest of an African-American Harvard professor.
So, I guess Blue Moon has somehow turned into the beer of pressure situations, because neither of these two could’ve been particularly relaxed. One would have to think there’s an endorsement opportunity for Slater. After all, what he did was kinda hysterical — going Michael Douglas (Falling Down) without actually harming anyone.
