We are culture that loves to hate the people we secretly love.
When real people who get up on stage with a brazenness that entertains us more than actual talent we flock to see what the hell it is that they are saying.
Freedom of speech is platform for our entertainment more than social change or equality amongst mankind. We revel in the exploits of people who have the balls to do the things every single one of us wish we could do ourselves.
A new campaign created by Droga5 Sydney for Virgin Mobile is absolutely genius.
They have lined up every single one of these amazing personalities who have somehow made it to the big stage based on their outlandish personalities and ability to become the scapegoats of our own flaws.
As a culture we all love to hate these people because at some point they have hit a spot within all of us that resonates deeply into our psyche, they have defied the odds and made it to fame and fortune through sheer silliness and utter ridiculousness that keeps show business attainable for anyone who can find the right shtick.
This is why we love these people, in a strange way they represent hope.
If Vanilla Ice or Milli Vanilli (what's with the common Vanilla theme?) can make it, so can anyone.
Well the time has come for these pre-fab'ed, rality tv muppets to fess up and apologize to their adoring fans for being so damn awesome!
My only gripe is that this is an Australian site that should be American.
