The World Is Broken
Tom Waits (1999): “This guy from Texas got paid 300 bucks to do me. That was his specialty, anyway, that he does this perfect impersonation of me. And they did this whole thing around “Step Right Up,” and every now and then they would say “Fritos” or whatever. And afterward, the guy felt so bad, he came out as our star witness.”
This morning, as I watched the Constructivist Tesco’s adverts (60 million corpses in the wake of the Communist experiment are no problem for this ad campaign!) I was thinking about how much damage advertising is doing to my soul. Then I found that Tom Waits had been impersonated to advertise Fritos. What. The Fuck.
