my rant for the day… WTF?!?!

So I was watching MTV last night (I know… you can feel free to make fun of me the next time you see me) and I saw one of those text messaging commercials. I’ve looked on Youtube for a video of the commercial, with no luck of course. It went something like this:

Text Game A or Game B to 88288 to win $10,000

What is the capital of the United States?
A. Miami (Text game A)
B. Washington DC (Text game B)
Win $10,000! Text Game A or Game B to 88288

Just wanted to let everyone know that I was pissed about it… not even sure why, it is just completely ridiculous. I’m really wondering how the company responsible can afford advertising on MTV.

Also, when searching for a video of the commercial, I came across this MTV commercial which I thought was fantastic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_OyzRJpw5s

I think it would be interesting to do a structuralist analysis of MTV in the 80’s versus today…
