Oh hey guys.
I didn’t go anywhere. I was just taking the world’s longest shower.
Then I saw this.
The video starts by getting into the mind of a young man: “So you think you look pretty cool wearing your pants like that, don’t you?” asks a voice, as two pretty cool looking black teenagers walk down the street, jeans sagging below the waist line, presumably on their way to disrespect someone’s community. According to the voice, this plague on our city’s streets is called wearing your jeans “hip-hop style”; to stoke your disgust at this unholy scourge, the producers use a “Hip-Hop” beat direct from their Casio keyboard as the background music. It’s all part of a calculated effort to get your attention; after some 30-odd years of ignoring the problem, it’s time to confront the issue head-on, and for that battle, a respected voice of authority would have to get involved. And in hip-hop, no figure commands greater respect than a police officer.
