S.F. Woman's Airbnb Burglary Dramatized in Weird Taiwanese Animation

Posted By on Thu, Jul 28, 2011 at 4:20 PM

Yesterday we reported on a San Francisco woman's horror story of being burglarized by strangers who rented her apartment through Airbnb, the local startup that connects hosts with travelers who want to pay to stay at private homes instead of hotels. The news came after Airbnb announced earlier this week that it has raised an additional $112 million in investment money, and now boasts a $1.3 billion valuation.

Far be it from us to make light of anyone's misfortune. But the wacky Taiwanese animation company, Next Media Animation, has produced a short film based on the victim's story. NMA, you'll recall, is the same company that produced bizarre computer-generated cartoons depicting the misfortunes of such celebrities as Charlie Sheen and Tiger Woods. Watch the video above.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
