Jad Choueiri (Dis)graces Us with Again with "Stop Popping Pills"


Jad Choueiri continues to help us explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before into the depths of male waxed eyebrows, pancake flat messages, and as I mentioned before, the overall multiple depths of discrimination faced by the Beiruti club of beautifulpeopledom.

Again his embrace of the thing he is supposedly "denouncing" comes off ambiguous and confused, leaving us to wonder if he is on the side of the fence of saying no to drugs, if he is merely a musical Paul Revere alerting us that if you do drugs you might get caught by "cops", or if he is encouraging the drug/club scene through the ironic "don't" but really "do" push the little red button and pop the pills.

The sad part of it all is that people like him think that pushing conservative boundaries translates to this. It only gives authorities more reason to crack down on Arab night crawlers if you ask me. I have never witnessed such an empty vaccuum of a music video-and thats saying a lot for someone who survived the summer fluke "I Like Girls Who Wear Abercombie and Fitch". Is there no alternative?
