The decline of Western civilization

To which I am contributing by posting the following link.

I warn you - once you view this YOU CAN NEVER GO BACK. It's kinda like doing acid, but not in the happy everyone's-a-Muppet! kind of way (I know, I have a thing about Muppets. Muppets are cool!) This, this is like a bad acid trip, the kind that produces flashbacks and that stays with you forever.

So, consider yourself warned.

Muslims are currently rioting because of some Danish editorial cartoons. Why, I ask, is no-one rioting about this?

Decline of Western Civilization? Hardly. This video is a deeply patriotic celebration of American banality in the spirit of conceptual artist Jeff Koons. It roars with imperialist 'oooga chagga' imagery as Hasselhoff surfs the polar ice-melt brought on by the hot fires of Western capitalism. This highly sophisticated work becomes a form of moral suicide that acts to cleanse the American psyche. Its ultra-reality and self-incrimination becomes a kind of container to house the entire cannon of American guilt and joy – a kind of yin-yang construction of inextricable opposites that exist at the core of the American experience, the kind of which the entire world desires.
I love this video. I wish to inject it, intravenously, into my bloodstream.
