…Some music is unwanted?

Vitaly Komar, Alex Melamid and David Soldier conducted an online poll to find out what types of music people are most annoyed by. The list includes:

    Holiday music, bagpipes, pipe organ, a children’s chorus and the concept of children in general, Wal-Mart, cowboys, political jingoism, George Stephanopoulos, Coca Cola, bossanova synths, banjo ferocity, harp glissandos, oompah-ing tubas and much, much more.

After compiling this list, they then took all of the styles and lyrical subjects and combined them into a single track, called simply “The Most Unwanted Music”.

Can you survive a listen?

…Coke wants to win the Super Bowl?

Who’s going to win the top spot among this year’s Super Bowl advertisers? Coke’s attempt, “Happiness Factory” is definitely going to be in the running, and Very Short List predicts it’s going to be the big winner. A combination of animated fantasia and Rube Goldberg, the spot is a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of a Coke machine. We’ll just have to wait and see what other companies are going to pull out of their back pocket before making any final decisions, but I definitely think it’s going to be a very interesting competition.

…Coke can kill you?

The artist behind this project must have taken his Pepsi Challenge loss to heart, because he’s got a serious grudge going against Coca Cola. From the description:

The routine destruction we do to our bodies, mitigated through corporate mass media, is comically expressed through a robot named C3 (parodying Coca Cola’s new low-carb product C2).

The robot is programmed to find puddles of Coke placed on the gallery floor, and then:

When C3 finds a puddle of coke, it sucks the beverage up through an electrical pump, and then sprays it across itself. The acidic nature of the coke eventually eats through the robot’s skin, finding its way to the circuitry, causing it to break down. The robot is designed to find and consume until it kills itself.

Think that was bad? How about this:

Companies such as Coca Cola deploy marketing strategies that completely infuse our culture with a sense of well being and elevated self worth that contradicts the actual benefits of the consumable product.

Yeah, that’s what I call a grudge.
