Black Friday (narrated by Cool Calm Pete)

In Consumerism, Media Criticism, New York City, Sexuality, US Politics on November 25, 2006 at 2:54 pm

Since Black Friday was yesterday, I thought i’d post up this video by Queens based rapper Cool Calm Pete. It touches on topics of consumerism, politics, drugs (prescription and otherwise), sex, media, and America’s ADD, among other things. What a perfect compliment to holiday cheer, just like those department store stampedes! What’s even better is that all of the footage in the video is vintage tv shows and commercials. It sort of makes you think about how much things have and haven’t changed.
