ZADI IN NY TIMES!
By the way, the article mentions me, sorta:
Although the band intended the music video as an antiwar protest, Kelefa Sanneh, a pop music critic for The New York Times, pointed out that it also "works pretty well as a support-our-troops statement." One blogger recently posted the Green Day video with the tag "Great Recruitment Video." Maybe he was being facetious, maybe not.
I posted Great Recruitment Video on my vlog, and yes, I was being facetious. Keep in mind this is the most popular and clearly anti-war album to emerge from Bush War II. It should be pretty obvious this video is not a rally call to sign up for broken hearts and possible death in Iraq. More importantly, can we please put to rest the 60's-era notion that "antiwar" is incompatible with "support-our-troops"? Thanks.
