Why is TimeWarner telling me to F off??

"ARLINGTON -- The man who sent city and State Police rushing to defuse what they believed were explosive devices around the Boston region yesterday and who was later arrested and charged with placing a hoax device and disorderly conduct, said he was only creating art."

The apology:

"The ''packages'' in question are magnetic lights that pose no danger. They are part of an outdoor marketing campaign in 10 cities in support of Adult Swim’s animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. They have been in place for two to three weeks in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards. We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger.

I don't understand how this is art. OR advertising.
