Pop Culture Still Tells the Best Stories


This isn't an ad; it's a music video for D.A.N.C.E. by Justice. And it's amazery!

We just think it does a spiffy job of mashing up retro pop images, subculture slogans, familiar ad themes, and corporate fonts to demonstrate how these messages embed themselves into our everyday interactions. We adopt and drop them with the ease of a casual shrug.

Witty little manifestos make up a patchwork retelling of our shared media experiences. We really like the moment when "Internet killed the video stars" is swallowed by a spinning cross, which is then overtaken by a pyramid.

And can you catch the moment when the Disney font is used?

Your T-shirt does indeed say a lot about you.

ooo! Thank you Angela for this wonderful link! I would love to have a sit down with the creators of this video. If they are in NYC and you can make it happen A- I've got yankee tickets for U.

They're in Paris but it's my impression they cross the pond a lot. Dude, if you back out on those Yankee tickets I'll be bummed.
