Latvian media says that it was made by TELE2 (Lithuanian Mobile Communication company). Lithuanians are not to blame because it was made by TELE2 -
So they (TELE2 - representatives) say Quote: "Our purpose is to inspire Latvian society, we want to emphasize that Latvia can do many things. we see
that with this kind of event, Latvia's name has resounded in all the world. Latvia is interesting in world not because we have crysis and things are
hard and bad. But because here is happening interesting and creative events. It is unique achievement and part of our communication."
"Tele2" director of marketing and trade: Janis Spogis
This is how desperate Latvia has become due to EU and IMF influence.
I am not surprised at all. That's what I was speculating previously in the thread, that Latvia has too many negative things happening and a piece of
bread and a circus is an old tactic. As far as TELE2 is concerned, I would send them a bill, as they have wasted more government resources with their
prank. The message is quite lame and unclear. If they wanted to help their country, perhaps they should do so directly via their customers, say
decrease rates. Perhaps cut down on their profit for the benefit of the people. Perhaps they even figured out a way to make some money on this too.
Hell, if the flying UFO balloon in US is to be fined for half a mil, why not TELE2. It's the same thing, no?
Well it was good while it lasted. Thanks for all the input
