IDEA FOUR: Living Commercial



Those Nascar jumpsuits like the kind Will Ferrell wears made me wonder, "why can't ordinary people do that?" and by that i mean why can't ordinary people get paid to wear advertising and of course the answer is that if everyone got paid to wear brand names than the brands would have no one to sell their product to. So then i got to thinking some more, and realized, hey, no one really wants to look at old people anyways, so how about just college kids? If yr in college, as in, enrolled and matriculated and all that good stuff, then you can decide to automatically apply by ticking the “sell-out” field onyr facebook site.

Those who present themselves as cool, hip, smart and beautiful can get credit of varying types…from online or in-store shopping accounts to lower interest rates on their credit cards, to prepaid course books or even towards tuition. All they would have to do is maintain an agreed upon brand tag-to-post ratio and that’s it…no scripts, no ads to click on…just ferreal cool kids being ferreal wearing their clothes, eating their food and playing their games on the innernet on corporate expense accounts…it would be the ultimate form of viral marketing, cuz, as those of you who have had a blue pill know, we humans are the ultimate form of virus.


of course, online social networking has its drawbacks as well.

Can you say "cyber cops?"


How about “The End of Privacy”…?

All the same, college is pretty fucking expensive not to want to get put on…even if it means selling out.
