Lucky Man Sells Out - Big time. Check it out on YouTube.

As many of you know we at TBWCYL, Inc. have only been too happy to sell out when it comes to Lucky Man. But to no avail. Until now that is. As it turns out, Dunkin' Donuts is running a video competition via YouTube and the theme is what do you do that makes America run. The top ten favorite videos will get into some kind of online programming thing and the top fifty will get free coffee for a year. Nice. Meanwhile, regardless of what happens we will get to spread the Lucky Man love. So if you're so inclined, please take a look at "Lucky Man Sells Out" on YouTube, and please note that if things go well your next cup of coffee is on us.

The video sends me mixed signals [points to t-shirt] ;).

Good catch, this is our effort at being faux-subversive and faux-anti-corporate. It is also a shout-out to you of course since you recognized this t-shirt the last time it appeared in one of these videos.

Hey, Ben! Bob Dylan wants his video back!

I keed! I keed!

Nick said...

Coolest thing I have ever seen. Especially that slow, prolonged sip at the end. Boy, it really looks like you're enjoying that coffee. Where's it from again? Oh, yeah, DUNKIN' DONUTS! I hope you win.

Ben said...

One, we are always happy to steal, and we were definitely going for a Dylan/Spaulding Grey homage thing here, albeit quite poorly, so we apologize to both of them and all of you. And two, thank you Nick for the kudos, but really we feel like we've already won - the video is actually out there and how crazy is that?

Don said...

Poorly, hell! No apologies necessary, here.

Poor is the birth-control pill commercial set to a girl-band cover of Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It."

That is some nice selling out. Also, that light would be good for interrogations.

Ben said...

Yeah, we plead the fifth.

What a whore he is. But with a heart of gold, of course.

As far as tongue-in-cheek sellouts go, it's not quite Roger Daltrey reclining in a bathtub full of baked beans, but it's pretty close.

We've never been compared to Julia Roberts before, so thank you for that. Meanwhile, we now know what we're going to do for our Bush's Baked Beans cross-marketing video, so thank you for that as well.
