An old article gets new life. #TBT
2012 I wrote an article titled Bait Phone. It was
about cops dropping mobile phones with a tracking device and following the
stealing culprit for an arrest. Like Bait Car but with
weekend, I noticed that the article was blowing up but couldn’t figure out why:
tweeted out on Monday:
time, I didn't realize something else was at play.
decided to do a twitter search:
that a video with the same name as my blog post was trending: Bait Phone 2 - basically a
stun gun with a remote. Over 2.2 million YouTube views in less than a week.
It’s a prank video where they have a remote zapper to sting the culprits when
they grab & walk away with the phone. One guy - who had it in his pocket - denied
taking it until he was personally shocked.
When I did
a Google search over the weekend, my article was still at the top but now the
article is like #13 listed (maybe even lower) and the video has taken the top
never know when an old article might pop due to some other circumstances. At
least folks are reading it and not totally bailing!
