lol @ alex r.

also: “Artists are finding the only way to achieve any financial safety is to become a lapdog of the great corporations,” said the author and media critic Douglas Rushkoff, “just like the great painters did in the Renaissance, when it became impossible to sustain oneself as an artist without a patron.”

Walked past the ad today again. And, to be honest it really feels kind of wrong. But, who cares? I don't blame then. I would've if they were advertising washing-powder as loazis said though. But c'mon... It's levis? Still, weird.

To be fair, they wear Levi jeans already and they gotta get paid so I don't see anything wrong with it

The strangest thing about this whole thing is the amount of people who are just going to stroll by the advert and probably not even realise its a band on the poster , i dont see Gaslight getting tons of benefit from this apart from loads of free jeans.

here's pic taken yesterday at Moorgate, which shows the "Levi's Presents The Gaslight Anthem" bit



given all the work that went into this, judging by the video, it's odd that only two shots have appeared so far in the ads

i think it's still very soon. looking at the websites, it looks like levi's has had another collection going on for a while: levi's curve ID (as a matter of fact, i went to my local levi's store last week and the posters that were inside were all about this). so maybe this is just a 'transition' fase between one 'old' collection and the new one, and new adds/shots/posters will appear in the next few days/weeks...

At least they used Queen of Lower Chelsea in the making of video.

Funny, didn't even link the lyrics to the fact they're doing an ad; nothing is free.

But there is still something about it that makes me cringe a little, as much as I love the guys.

Like wise. I never feel to easy when music and corporations mix it all seems a bit unnecessary. I think its worse when you bands doing sponsored tours. I can see both sides of the coin though and im not about to call them sell outs but I dunno just sits a bit uneasy with me.

i basically agree with kieran's statement. a bit offputting, but overall, it's their choice to make, it's a company they are likely to support anyways, so, whatever.

and i had the same thought when i read rkirkpatrick's post, "chill out", but he said he had too many drinks, shit happens, i've been there, so. whatever.
