Facebook Post About Oglesby Concert Whips Some People Into Frenzy

Posted by wlpo on July 1, 2013

A performance by a Blues Brothers tribute band got plenty of publicity last night for Oglesby.  Some was positive publicity some was negative.

About an hour before “Jake and Elwood & The Big Fun Band” were scheduled to take the Oglesby Fun Fest stage Sunday night, a message went up on Oglesby’s Facebook page saying “ALERT: Two Joliet prison escapees last spotted on I-80 heading west, believed to be headed to Oglesby.”  The post was in reference to the Blues Brothers characters from the movie but not everyone got the reference.

Over 30 comments and 170 “shares” of the post quickly popped up with some taking the alert so serious they locked their doors in fear.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
