Kreayshawn - Bumpin’ Bumpin’ (Adeptus’ Acid Dub)
Stumbled upon this hilarious music video by way of a friend. I can’t bring myself to post it here, but click through for a laugh. I’m not sure what’s more disturbing, the fact that the beats are oddly hypnotic (Remember those spaced out 90s breakbeats?) or that it takes a parody of an artist to make beats like this popular again. Props to Adeptus, the real talent behind the scenes.

Subvertising is a portmanteau of subvert and advertising. It refers to the practice of making spoofs or parodies of corporate and political advertisements.
Subvertisements may take the form of a new image or an alteration to an existing image or icon, often in a satirical manner. A subvertisement can also be referred to as a meme hack and can be a part of social hacking or culture jamming.
According to AdBusters, a Canadian magazine and a proponent of counter-culture and subvertising,
“A well produced ‘subvert’ mimics the look and feel of the targeted ad, promoting the classic ‘double-take’ as viewers suddenly realize they have been duped. Subverts create cognitive dissonance. It cuts through the hype and glitz of our mediated reality and, momentarily, reveals a deeper truth within.”
