darrick eathorne's curator insight, December 4, 2013 12:21 PM

This shows and tells exactly how the underground music will become corprate and taken over by the industry if there is room for money to be made or even if your not trying to go comercial. It goes to show even if the music is still considered underground by the artists because dubstep was underground for quit some time but if you are on the cover of rolling stones you are deffinately not underground no more. more or less its not really your choice to stay underground as an artists that doesnt really have the spot light on you. if you have fans and the media likes it they will expose you and you will get known and herd.

Kelloggs Corn Flakes with Superman & Jimmy Olsen

It's amazing how Superman can fly thru the air as fast as he does with an open box of corn flakes and not spill/lose any!! Not only are the boxes open (without top flaps), but they also appear to have no inner-bag in the box!!??!! But that's why they call him Superman!!

 

This "integrated" commercial appeared at the end of several episodes of "THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN" during the 1955-'56 season.

Back When America Was Goofier-Cut loose in Career Club Shirts | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it
Pop culture is always a step behind the real cutting-edge culture that defines what's cool in the current zeitgeist. And mass media advertising, with its drive for universal appeal, is generally made from an even weaker brew than pop culture.

From tons of Pc Games, Movies, Video, Zombie is now in almost everyone minds. It becomes so familiar until a lot of people think the Zombie do exist or will be existing in near future. This is why many gaming company take Zombies as a main character, Movies director use Zombies as a storyline. Tv Drama such as The Walking Dead becomes a hot topic to be discussed among those who watch TV and even pizza company like Hell Pizza is using it as a unique selling point to create a viral commercial.
