Who's down with BFD? [Jul. 30th, 2003|03:59 pm]
The American Caliban
[Current Mood |amused]

Next door to the coffee house is a strip mall. In the strip mall are a couple of decent places to eat, a tanning parlor, the usual frozen yogurt place, and in the last year or so a wireless phone shop. This place is run by some fast young good-looking types and they have a promotionally flagged Humvee with the company's name on it, etc. They hang out in the Napa Valley's sports bar a lot.

A couple of the waiters at the Napa discovered that the wireless bro-guys had made a rather strange promotional item for their store. An item that pretty much sums up "bling bling". So, of course, it was acquired. So, of course, I got a shot of one of the waiters wearing it.

It should say "off the hook" or "411"

Hardly a day goes by that I don't rue the appropriation of hip-hop culture by the mainstream media. It was bad enough going to a Midwestern college with a bunch of tow-headed Tupac Shakur fanatics who had never actually met a black person. But seriously, if I see another Sprint ad or reality-dating show featuring some white dude in his thirties wearing baggy pants and a backwards cap, I'm going to lose it.

While you're at it

These poor, poor people have never actually witness the grandeur that is the Yackety-Yck Humvee. It's pretty bad on its own. Next time you get a photo op you need to share!

Oops. Nevermind. It's like this only red.

Marketing Consultants


Do you think we can harvest some consulting fees from this; we can call it the Bling Bling campaign, Chrome, Hummers, NB 18 year olds blonds, silver, diamonds, poor man commentary, merge with Boost mobile, KCOP 13 airtime.... we could be millionaires! We would go straight to hell, but still, we could be millionaires!
