Jack White's Coke Commercial

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We get a lot of cheesy people trying to get their hands down the proverbial pants of LAist every day.

You know, those who try to get their crap on our crap so that you THE EYEBALLS will see and love and salivate and consuuuuume. Even though that's not really how it works. How do we know? Well, watch:

Be nice to each other.

Give $20 to the most shady homeless person you see next.

See, none of it works. People have very little power of influence. Control, of course, is an illusion.

Coke figured if they used Jack White of the White Stripes to sing a song then people would think Coke is still cool, yo , but indeed all this killer commercial inspired us to do is make a post, order some Thai, and see if those Diet Dr. Peppers are still in the trunk outside.

But good try.
