Popular on Reddit: Travel Nightmare

June 22, 2011

Spreading quickly on Reddit today is this video posted by a traveler from the United Kingdom, which purports to show luggage that was severely tampered with. According to Gawker, which also picked up the story after it began drawing attention on Reddit, the man, Sy Haze explains that, "Apparently someone had urinated on his clothes, squirted toothpaste all over his toiletry bag, and made off with a bottle of aftershave."

The video is part of a longtime trend of combining web video and social media to voice serious consumer complaints, particularly regarding large corporations like the airlines.
