Joe Rose finagled another classic quote from Trimet, this one about the 'modest mouse' silly little music video which was basically an ad for Trimet. When Joe tried to get info on who financed this feel good video he got back the usual bunch of bullshit which resulted in another classic quote
Of course, the band or its labeled probably compensated TriMet -
ergo, taxpayers -- for the use of one of its trains for the video shoot,
Actually, TriMet can't say for sure.
From agency spokeswoman Roberta Altstadt:(this is the quote)
The footage was shot in 2008, and we no longer have detailed
records of this video shoot. We do know that it was shot over three
days, mostly at night and after hours when MAX was not running. All of
the trains in the shots with a coyote in them were special service
trains rented by the filming crew. Again, we don't have the paperwork to
give you the exact cost.
Maybe the coyote ate it.(hahaha! go look at the article and see how many people stick up for Trimet lies, incredible)
