GI shoots up HP printer and gets a new one for free

Unsatisfied about a new product you've just bought? Frustrated about the bad service big corporations offer you? Why not use the internet to show the world about it?

That's exactly what Captain Eric Wright from the US army just did. Mr Wright, which is presently stationed in Iraq, had some problems with an HP printer he was using extensively. Here’s what happened:

"OK HP, I've got a printer over here I've been using to help do my job, to protect your freedom. I call you up the other day because my printer's broken, and you want me to pay you to tell me how to fix it. I got something for you."

After being circulated on the Internet for a while, this video was screened by some people at HP, which immediately decided to send Captain Wright a replacement unit. The moral of this story? When companies refuse to give you support for a product under warranty, show the world about it!


  • Bravo, or whatever Company he is attached to.

  • I'd like to see this jaggoff court marshaled for destruction of government property, and wasting resources, (ammunition).

  • when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail. can't figure out how to work your printer? just shoot it and demand a replacement. typical military solution.

  • the bullets he used probably cost the tax payers more than what it costs him to buy a new printer

  • What i thought was funny is this guy unloads and he didn't hit shit! Hope he doesn't get sniper detail!

  • He is firing series with a machine gun in a standing pose. That is a very good way to hit anything else than the target.
