Obey (Obama) Pepsi
Sometimes in my travels I have come across something that immediately inspires rage and true hatred inside of me. These things are not always obvious and can at times be very subtle, apparently innocuous, and for the most part benign, yet they create in me an immediate impulse control crisis that in turn generates the threat of imminent violence. In the past the things that have caused me to want to smash to pieces either the item of disdain, the item’s bearer, or the closest inanimate object have been varied.
Baby on board warning signs in the rear window of a vehicle. I want to cook smores over you and your ‘baby on board’ as you lay trapped and screaming while you burn to death in your overturned car after I smash you into a ditch.
Ugg boots. Ugg boots symbolize all that is useless and vile about the women that wear them and I want to club them like a baby seal.
Mac people. I don’t care if nobody makes viruses for your gay hippie operating system. I hate Bill Gates like the next guy but don’t try and make me join your tree-hugging ‘hip’ techno-cult. Just get out of my face you fucking shit-fucks before I thrash you permanently with your ergonomic ‘world-peace’ bush-hating white pussy-boy laptop. I fucking hate you people. Nobody cares that graphic designers prefer your shit – just fuck off and die. Its a laptop not a lifestyle you fucker!
And now the most recent focus of my blind rage and perhaps the most deserving.
The fucking goddamn new Pepsi advertising campaign “Everything Refreshes”.
The advertisements are like a fucking hate-crime on my brain. I hate the colors, I hate the font, I hate the message, and I absolutely HATE the new Pepsi logo. First of all it’s so obvious that it’s a outright copy of the Obama campaign logo that it makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit each time I see one. The two logos are fucking identical. There is a giant billboard with the word “HOPE” just down the street from my condo. No mention of the word “Pepsi” but it is their logo in place of the distinctive “O”, not Obama’s but Pepsi’s “O”. Clearly Pepsi is trying to ride the ascendency of Obama’s campaign popularity. What are they trying to say? “Obama is the man who is going to refresh our nation”? I know that massive corporations have vast and powerful marketing divisions that use the latest developments in science, psychology, and human mind control to turn us all into endlessly purchasing consumer robots. A nation of pale-faced zombies all moaning “buy buy buy” while mindlessly staggering through shopping malls. Well these Pepsi fucks are now trying to tap into the consumer zeitgeist and replace one symbol for another (and turn a buck as they do it). Somehow you’re not an American unless you drink Pepsi, it’s like a loyalty oath for consumers. You don’t believe in America unless you love Obama and drink Pepsi. I think I read somewhere that it cost Pepsi one million dollars to design their logo. One million dollars!? That shit would have taken me five minutes with a pencil and some tracing paper.
Another thing that is becoming clear to me is that Coke = Republican while Pepsi = Democrat. Red verses blue, conservative verses liberal. The sickening thing for me is that with all the Socializing (just a short bread-line away from Communism) being conducted by our government currently that the new Obama-Pepsi ad campaign billboards are like right out of 1984 or that badass John Carpenter movie from the 80′s “They Live”. So now maybe it’s all starting to make a little sense.
Pepsi = Obama = mindless consumerism = Socialism = America = Totalitarian Dystopia
I get it you assholes. I understand that you are using one thing to sell another. I really don’t care that you’re stealing either because what you are stealing is a lie anyway. There is no intellectual property if the idea you are stealing/selling is intellectually bankrupt. Pepsi ad campaign / Obama election campaign… YOU are intellectually bankrupt. This is the new brutal parody of modern civilization. A society of merciless consumption (with a prozac smile). Commerce is the first commandment and ethics is merely a marketing tool. Mega-corporations rule the world and there are no longer such things as integrity, dignity, compassion or faith. The citizen/consumer can no longer rebel and seldom fights the system, simply because it is impossible: the oppressor is faceless and collective.
This mindless modern consumer society utilizes total control over and demands total commitment from the citizens. The oppressors hide behind a political ideology with a reprogrammed language. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. Totalitarian states throughout history have been ruled by party bureaucracies backed up by cadres of secret police and armed forces. The citizens in those societies were closely monitored and rebellion was always punished mercilessly. Today the oppressor is the same as the oppressed. The futile struggle of isolated dissidents who resist today are not simply punished as in days before, but are excommunicated from the perceived salvation of the higher power of “acceptance” and “success”. The only free act is the simple act of rebellion against that which controls – in this case a bullshit marketing campaign. Something as harmless as soda-pop is now mind-poison. Do I own AIG or does AIG own me? So let these last words be my free futile act.
Fuck you Pepsi!
Fuck you and die!
