Some Companies try to hide “content” in their commercials so that it takes the viewer a few times viewings it to catch on to what they are selling. Such as Kmart’s “Ship my pants” commercials. Here is the Carl’s Jr commercial that was banned from the Super Bowl. I just wonder, what are they selling and what is the “hidden” content? Can you tell?

A Message From Flea

Dear everybody, When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL’s stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period. The Red Hot Chili Peppers stance on any sort of miming has been that we will absolutely not do it. The last time we did it (or tried to) was in the late 80’s, we were thrown off of ‘The Top Of the Pops’ television program in the U.K. during rehearsals because we refused to mime properly, I played bass with my shoe, John played guitar atop Anthony’s shoulders, and we basically had a wrestling match onstage, making a mockery of the idea that it was a real live performance. We mimed on one or two weird MTV shows before that and it always was a drag. We take our music playing seriously, it is a sacred thing for us, and anyone who has ever seen us in concert (like the night before the Super Bowl at the Barclays Center), knows that we play from our heart, we improvise spontaneously, take musical risks, and sweat blood at every show. We have been on the road for 31 years doing it. So, when this Super Bowl gig concept came up, there was a lot of confusion amongst us as whether or not we should do it, but we eventually decided, it was a surreal-like, once in a life time crazy thing to do and we would just have fun and do it. We had given this a lot of thought before agreeing to do it, and besides many a long conversation amongst ourselves, I spoke with many musician friends for whom I have the utmost respect, and they all said they would do it if asked, that it was a wild trippy thing to do, what the hell. Plus, we the RHCP all love football too and that played a big part in our decision. We decided that, with Anthony singing live, that we could still bring the spirit and freedom of what we do into the performance, and of course we played every note in the recording specially for the gig. I met and spoke with Bruno, who was a beautiful dude, a real talented musician, and we worked out something that seemed like it would be fun. – See more at:

“Flea” tweets about the halftime game show

It’s been all over the net since The Red Hot Chili Peppers took the stage for one song during the Super Bowl Halftime Pepsi show. Clearly one could tell  TRHCP instruments weren’t plugged in.

 

aaaaaaa

So they sort of took a beating for not standing up to “the MAN” and insisting they play a song “live” they wrote 20 something years ago… Some called them sell outs and others called them posers… But in that world of being seen by millions of people at one time what would you do? Argue your point about being “true” to the music or sucking it up and having as much fun as you can with it? I think  TRHCP guys did the right thing. They got their music once again out there in the modern world and not just on classic rock stations. Here is Flea’s tweet. I think it is open and honest and should stop all the “hating”. And obviously they poked “the MAN” in the eye anyway because you can’t fool the fans and they knew it but got away with it and hide it from “the MAN”. Hats off but not the socks to the guys in TRHCP.

 

Super bowl Half Time show…

Up first just to clear the air. I am not an old fogy…I stay current on music, news, technology, etc. So even though I am not a big sports fan I was at my son in laws house so the game was on. Now I have watched the halftime shows before and like a lot of other people that aren’t interested in the game I will watch the commercials or catch them on line the next day. But it so happens I was present during the game and got to watch the half time “Show”.

sg As far a Beyonce’s performance. It was dance routine to canned music. Lots of light and flash….No substance. She may have actually sang 20 words from her prerecorded songs pumped through the P.A…The only thing missing was Dionne Warwick introducing her and the other solid gold dancers…

I will admit she is good on the eyes but hell, any old penthouse or playboy back in the day would have done the same thing for me…I won’t say she is a talentless, but i will say the half time show was lame as hell and it didn’t have to be a classic rock band like “The Who” or KISS. Or Madonna for that matter. But when are we as an “Audience” going to to demand people that entertain us to be “real”. She was nothing more than a “mime”. Like most other artists these days. They lip sing and play over prerecorded music and we call it art…

from Wikipedia…

A mime artist (from Greek “μίμος”—mimos, “imitator, actor”)[1] is someone who uses mime as a theatrical medium or as a performance art, involving miming, or the acting out a story through body motions, without use of speech.

I don’t want people to hate on her or anyone for that matter. But what I would like is for them to be real. Stop the faking it and you young kids stop eating spoon feed candy coated junk. You should think more of your selves than that…

Here is the Beyonce’s performance… Just mute the volume she doesn’t sing much anyway so you’re not missing anything…
