Carnival Cruise Gives Teen Free Vacation For His Snapchat Handle

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Fifteen-year-old Darian Lipscomb of Prospect, Va., loves himself a good Carnival cruise - so much so that he made his Snapchat handle @carnivalcruise. Well, the company decided it wanted the handle for itself, so it started bombarding his hometown with signs asking Darian to give it up. Finally, they made the teenager an offer he couldn't refuse - a free cruise for his family on the company's new ship. Now, all he has to do is come up with a new Snapchat handle - maybe @winning. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
