For the WIN!!
Two musicians (that have played with Ben Davis’ wife!) staged a creative protest against US Airways after they were banned from boarding a North Carolina flight with their instruments.
Nicholas Kendall and Zach De Pue were told that they could not bring their violins on board with them on Memorial Day… so they started playing their violins on the tarmac in protest.
After complaining on Twitter and being rebooked on a second flight, the two men were able to get to their gig, but the video of their protest performance has gone viral with nearly 160,000 views since Monday.
