oh. and then there's this.


I guess if famous people say it, it must be true, huh? Yeah, that part's kinda cheesy, but the video itself is kinda cool. Ok. I'll shut up about politics now.

I just blogged about this video. I was less nice about it then you were, though.

I can't help it. When it gets to the "In the unlikely story of America, there has never been anything false about hope" I love this video, I love that guy from Black Eyed Peas (couldn't name one song of theirs) I love the white kid playing guitar (who *is* that?) I love the weird lady with the tattoo. I love Scarlett J. I love them all. This is the weirdest, cheesiest, most gap-commercial like video, spoken word thing ever. I don't want to like it. But as Sam said: "Inspirational phrases and acoustic guitar! The peanut butter and jelly of rhetoric."

it's so manipulative that it actually works. especially all of the 'yes we can' chanting.

the white kid is on 'october road' (i think). he's a truly terrible actor, but apparently he can play the geetar.

the black-eyed peas had that one famous song, 'my humps'. you'd know it if you heard it. they probably had others as well, but that's the only one i know. and it was enough to cause me to never want to have anything to do with them. ever.

Is this the new ScarJo music video? For her Tom Waits cover album?

Im sorry, this video made me sick. It's so fake. They're selling us this concept of change and revolution because that's what people want to buy now. It was fucking sexy where'd he buy that jacket?

And is it because Obama's black he gets this "alternative" edge, or is it his middle-of-the-road politics?
