Converse - Pageant
Summary: Converse laments a pageant show, but concludes we're not dead yet.
A beauty pageant / talent competition video is shown, while text scrolls:
Why are we sitting and watching I Wanna Be the Galaxy's Best Supernova Diva Star?Even though the video portrays a pageant like Miss America, the text uses an example thats more similar to American Idol. The "so-called democracy" refers to the idea that on shows like that, a winner is chosen by the people.
Dutifully phoning in our votes for the next big thing while we wait on our couches to die.
Continue in this so-called democracy and you just may stop thinking for yourself.
That's when you are officially dead.
But you're not dead yet.
As aired on television, the commercial includes the sound of a crowd cheering.
