Im suprised someone caught the '50' thing.
The flag was originally colored 'correctly', but that didnt drive the point home. Plus, I in no way wanted anyone to make the assumption that I was showing any adoration for the flag.
That is WAAAAY too freaky, BlueJean! I didn't pick up on the flag reference at first. Well, I kindve did, but counting the white letters in the blue space and getting 50, that is unreal. Id never pick up on that. After hearing the whole Clear Channel explanation, they might not ask Jermaine to do anymore stuff for them after this one!
CLEAR CHANNEL is a big corporate machine, Maximum Flouride. Theyre known for strong-arming their way into markets, monopolizing them, and spitting out a very watered down, corporate product. Theyve been accused publicly of using some of the same cut-throat tactics and less than friendly employee treatment, which is really similar to Enron and what theyve been accused of. Thats why this image works so well with a show they are promoting, as MoxieGusto pointed out there. And when I saw the venue for this show was in Houston, I just thought this was so cool. To just throw an image like this on a CLEAR CHANNEL produced event. I love it!
