I like that they tried something new. They get a "B" for effort. It's interesting, gets your attention. I wonder what it would be like if they parodied the music video genre more tightly. They found an video regular in the female lead. A real "artist would have really had you fooled for a second, perhaps leading to a greater payoff. Isn't Glenn Lewis available, hell Bobby Brown is looking for a payday. He could be the black K-Fed.
The Nationwide spot really went there. It was uncompromising in its approach to the parody. You really believe it's a K-Fed video (which is a joke within itself) before they let you in on the big pay off. https://sites.google.com/site/mayuradocs/PinIt.png
