The day has come children. Sony is using "street art" as advertising. The Seattle Times
states that what looks like artful vandalism, is really part of a guerrilla marketing campaign for Sony's PlayStation Portable, a device that can play games, music and movies.
The images are painted directly onto building walls in urban areas, graffiti-style. Wide-eyed kids, portrayed in a stylized, comic-book rendering, pose with a mysterious, hand-size gadget. One licks his like a lollipop. Another is playing paddleball with the thing.
Well, I'm just confused about this whole thing. Somehow it all seems so gross and dirty, yet at the same time pure brilliance. The teens these days are so stupid, that they may actually go for this crap. I mean these advertising geniuses sit in an office all day, every day, thinking of new ways to dupe the teen generation. And believe you me, they are using those brains wisely.
I've heard recently that "kids" are getting hip to the groove, and are quite savvy in our modern times, but I'd like to disagree. Now I know that a 3 year old can hack a computer these days, and everyone young and old has seen Paris Hilton's sex tape, but I don't call this savvy. I've been a kid, and it was quite recently. So I can still remember what they're all about, at least I think I can still remember, if only I could remember where I put my pills. So to continue, I will just state the facts, Kids are deficient in the frontal lobe department, and most likely in the rear lobe as well. I'm telling you that teens are some of the most brainless people on the planet, they rank right up there with newborns, babies with sex drives. So I'm pretty sure that these baby devils will eat this shit up. What?!?!? Sony will outlive us all and own our souls?!?!?! yep. All because the teens don't have a clue who Picasso, Da Vinci, Van Gogh, and all the others are. Sony will paint fake graffiti, on the walls they payed for, and kids will look and wonder at the coolness of the tags. Lowest common denominator children, pay attention.
Kids don't want to be individuals, they want to be exactly like their classmates. They don't want to wonder what the hell that crap is on the walls with the SONY logo, they just want to be cool and "fit in". Well then, there goes the planet.
