Who is artistically superior? On one hand we have the epic smoking old man, Conrad, on the other, the bland fraudulant grammy winning band, Coldplay.
Example A (Conrad)
As you can see, Con has a keen sense for the feel and emotion behind a good smoke. One can feel the tension and he smokes vigurously, music adding to the message. Although we get some insight into the world of Conrad, he leaves the door open for us to imagine his life, his lovers, his thoughts and his desires. His minimalistic style is truly notable. He creates so much with so little. Attire, pipe, music and his soul. Surely the later of these is where the performance truly shines. A master of postmodern art, ConradCigarsPipes has shaped the world we live in with nothing but a video camera, a tape player and his soul.
Example B (Coldplay)
Although this video may fool you into a sense of thinking coldplay is original and experimental, do not be fooled. That east indian sitar and drumming fades out as the song itself actually begins. This is nothing more than a marketing ploy. The song itself consits of nothing but a few chords, glorified by modern effects and studio recording. The video lends nothing, pupets performing a concert at a birthday party is in no means brilliant. The stage expands, the show intensifies as the song repeats its own boring pattern over and over. Guitars smashing, helicopters, explosions, the whole bit... but for what? Soft pop rock formulated to appeal to mindless listeners with little to no knowledge about music.
Condrad is the winner
