If you missed the screw up of the year that was Fyre Festival last week, take a moment to look at the differences between the idyllic model-filled beaches and palm trees that were promised and the reality which was FEMA tents, robberies, feral dogs and lack of water.

They went on to speculate that the models' participation on promoting the festival may trigger a Federal Trade Commission proceeding for false advertising.
