One Bank, With Each Other

Our credit cards just changed names, so we know what this pitifully beautiful video of a U2 cover (viral advertising?) is talking about:



Found via Umlo.com, a listing of the top viral videos.

I'm vomiting. Isn't this borderline blasphemous?

Yes.

1. The perversion of any element in the U2 liturgy--even the trite and calculated ones like "One"--borders on blasphemy.

2. The increasing fuzziness of the borderline between user-created, non-commercial videos and corporate productions intended for immediate viral status is a kind of blasphemy.

But that's the way the world goes. Unless you're not like me--When I click on a "commercial" video, I always keep a window over the video until the ad's done playing, or shrink the video down to exclude the ad section.

And how else will the web be paid for, if not through advertising? I for one refuse to pay for any content whatsoever.
