Skip to comments.Meg Whitman's Camp Accidentally Tweets Link to Man in Pink Tutu
Posted on 10/20/2010 1:34:57 PM PDT by calcowgirl
The California gubernatorial candidate's spokeswoman, Sarah Pompei, sent a link to an endorsement from the Deputy Sheriffs' Association of San Diego County. Or so she thought.
Her tweet had read: "SD Cnty Sheriff Assoc says @Whitman2010 4 gov! RT: @Murphy4MegNews: CA Cops get it: Jerry Brown is too soft on crime." The tweet also included a link: http://bit.ly/bNCAV.
Instead, the link directed traffic to a YouTube video of a man in a pink tutu, playing a guitar.
The link was apparently missing a very critical letter "r."
When contacted about the mistake, Pompei reportedly responded with a laugh and simply said, "Oopsie."

Was it Jerry Brown?
LOL. Nope — some Korean guy. He’s actually pretty good playing the bass.
Of course the media lies again.... he’s playing a Bass, not a guitar!
OMG, too funny!!
This will increase Whitman’s “hip” factor in CA.
The garter belt is a nice touch.
I say Whitman did this on purpose to gain votes in CA, [I’m in LA]
Really? This is a news story?
Who frakkin cares?
Looks like Sean Lennon............
Going after the LGBT vote?
Cheech Marin tutu.
I was just going to say that. Love the skirt lifting at the end.
The guy has a slew of videos on youtube and quite a following, with more than 10000 subscribers:
I watched a few: Little Bo Peep is my favorite: http://www.youtube.com/user/hjfreaks#p/u/8/HGeoHXnrZt4
The Whitman camp couldn’t have made a more newsmaking tweet if they tried. LOL
Lzz would hit it!.............
LOL... I love Cheech — but w/o the body paint and tutu, LOL.
No, it must be Rahm.
This is news?
Ping for later viewing.
He (it) is pretty darn good on the bass... darn shame it’s a “guy”, nice legs (SARC)
What’s the problem, I love Geddy Lee.
And he’s probably gotten more hits today than ever and is wondering what the heck is going on?
Calcowgirl just pointed out a good vid of his I am watching ... Little Bo Peep:
Now that Whitman has endorsed him ...
Geddy doesn’t look that good in a tutu, LOL
All his videos are pretty good. Amazing hands.
I think he must do the dress-up thing as a gag to get more traffic?
Yeah, I think so too. A gimmick.
Don’t know where you are in Ca. But K-Town in LA is pretty cool.
I’m on the coast - about 20 miles from K-town.
But I used to often travel that route (Olympic) from Century City to Staples for Lakers games.
Where’s Jerry Brown in a tutu?
And never has!
