Post Titled: Jay-Z HP Re-Re-Revisited in the form of New Talib Qweli video
Post Subtitled: references abound.

Ahh, ok, ao how wierd is this clip from abc news or yahoo! ?
- Not only the woman introducing this exciting new release (notice how she carefully speeds through the word "Pornographers" practically mispronouncing it) but the fact that Kweli's music video uses/appropriates the same visual scheme as the Jay-Z Hewlett-Packard commercial? uhh... is that a "conscious" nod to Jay-Z being a sellout? Or an aesthetic choice...?

NOTE: See previous Jay-Z in advertising posts in this blog:

99 Problems, err, well-

Letter I sent to HP this afternoon

Verdict: "HUH?"

also, regarding Youtube advertising: t#s TRUE... so COULD that SHARP box in the baby sloth video really be subliminal advertising... hmmmmm?

a whole new world of marketing possibilities, now isn't it?
