This video is one of the first videos that we watched in class. The title of the song is “Operator (A Girl Like Me)” from Shiloh. It is related to an element that Dr. Strangelove said in class, he said :”videos are selling the artists and product”.
I think this quote is true since we can see in the video a girl that looks like Avril Lavigne and she is wearing a lot of accessories. On the other hand, we can see a girl who looks like Paris Hilton. These woman are popular and we hear talking about them a lot in the media. Well..not very much about Avril but more about Paris!!! These woman can be seen as role models for young girls and they can be influenced to buy the same accessories as them for example.
[Critic of the Video]
I like this video because we can see a contrast between two girls, one who has a more punk/rock/funky style which I like. And, on the other hand, we can observe a girl that looks like Paris Hilton because she as a dog in her purse, blond hair and wearing hills like Miss Hilton.
So, yes it is true that::”videos are selling the artists and product”.
