    So these geniuses must have had the house to themselves when their parents were away from home. Stormed up the idea to have their friends and themselves promote a mansion party on social media websites, inviting all guests willing to attend. The promotion was a complete success, almost 2000 people showed up to the event.

    This was the result:

    A whopping $70 000 in damage to the mansion. I wonder what the cost was in police to remove the guests from this house, tax payers money well spent nonetheless.

    I love articles and stories like this because it educates the uninformed while revealing the true power of internet marketing.

    Here's a link to the article:

    Lol you think these geniuses were expecting almost 2000 people to show up? They had to call the cops to get them to remove the people that showed up.

    That's not exactly how the picture looks because the picture is from the moment when everyone on the top floors was enjoying hard and the police suddenly raided and asked them to leave the mansion. And when so many people together leave the mansion, its bound to happen!

    Here's how it was actually going: https://t.co/h7I06edyBd

    And the people seemed to be loving it as which can be seen from these tweets:

    But yeah, it was quite funny to advertise the party on Social Media and if they did, they should have expected something like that!

    No I doubt they were because they had to be dumb to begin with to invite random people into their parents multi-million dollar mansion.

    What I was saying though is that it comes as no surprise that inviting teenagers to drink in a mansion will spread much quicker than just about anything else you may be marketing

    It all depends on who you invite. Drinking teenagers isn't the problem(...well), it's having no class and casting pearls before swine.

    Breaking things isn't baller, tossing the money to fix what you broke is baller.

    For everyone: If you're throwing a party, move your stuff out of the way. Not sure what's worse: a broken table or someone falling and breaking their teeth on a table.
