    the graf­fi­ti punk van­dal­is­ing some­one’s shop win­dow is not an appro­pri­ate inclu­sion

    I rec­om­mend read­ing ‘The Last Psy­chi­a­trist’s’ cri­tique of this video —

    “This is an ad of near­ly genius cre­ativ­i­ty if your met­ric is brand iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, brand enhance­ment. It almost con­vinces you that “Dude, the media has con­di­tioned us to think the world is a bad place, but most of the time, humans beings are awe­some” and the only thing that will stop you from falling into that spi­ral of pro­pa­gan­da is if you say out loud that the per­son try­ing to con­vince you of that fact is Coca Cola. Did you feel a lit­tle bit of glob­al com­mu­ni­ty? Well, I’ve been pret­ty much every­where, and no. Play the video with the sound off and don’t look at the words– a kind of voiceover, right?– and what you see is a world with crum­bling infra­struc­ture, appalling­ly ter­ri­ble safe­ty stan­dards, what I assume are drunk dri­vers, and lots and lots of peo­ple not work­ing. There’s a guy defac­ing pub­lic prop­er­ty at 0:59, but it’s all good.

    You know what else I see that deserves men­tion, by which I mean is com­plete­ly obfus­cat­ed by the ad? There are cam­eras every­where.”

    this comes from this arti­cle
