The internationally acclaimed internet sensation behind the song ‘United Breaks Guitars’ with over 10 million views!
The United Breaks Guitars triumph!
In 2009, Dave’s life and career were completely transformed when he launched the first of three YouTube music videos chronicling his extraordinarily frustrating customer experience with the airline whose employees damaged his Taylor guitar while touring.
Within a few days of its release, the song ‘United Breaks Guitars’ became an unprecedented hit on the internet reaching over 120 million people globally. This triumph has since established a benchmark for customer service and is a glaring example of the power of one person in the age of social media.
The international academic community has been actively evaluating the impacts of Dave's ‘United Breaks Guitars’ phenomenon, including institutions such as Harvard, University of Toronto (Rotman School of Business) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
