Will You Go Crazy If You Don’t Avoid That U2 Ad Tonight?

u2coldplay Will You Go Crazy If You Don’t Avoid That U2 Ad Tonight?Since everyone’s feeling contentious today, here’s an argument for the ages: Which wore out its welcome more quickly, the Coldplay iTunes ad from last summer, or the U2 Blackberry ad that’s running on TV now? My vote is for the U2 ad, for two reasons: First, it seems to be on TV all the time, and second, its opening line about generations always, always makes me think back to Fury In The Slaughterhouse’s 1993 alt-rock also-ran “Every Generation Has Its Own Disease,” a song that haunted my freshman year of college and still reminds me of the worst parts of the rise of Q101-approved rock. In case you’ve somehow missed one (or both) of the spots, they’re after the jump!

iPod + iTunes ad – Coldplay



Thanks to The Awl for changing the subject from hipsters! For at least a few minutes, anyway.
