Fifty Shades of Grey on Fire July 19, 2012 – Tags:

Calling the runaway bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey “bad for marriages and particularly bad for men” a radio show in Cleveland called on its listeners to bring copies of the book to a local establishment to have them burned.

As usual with these covert marketing events the burning was a dud with just six copies of the book and one Nook going up in flames.
