It's official: The White Stripes are no longer cool

You had to question their indie cred when they won the Grammy. But hey, Elephant was a fucking spectacular album, so you let it slide. You had to wonder when their last album was an overproduced stinker with only two decent tracks. But now, it's official, Jack White has sold out. Yes, that's him doing a jingle (A JINGLE?!?!) for Coca-Cola. That's right, he's shilling for the man.

I really shouldn't be upset, should I? This is the way of the world, right? The circle is unbroken?

I am truly crushed. Not "jump off a bridge" crushed - but crushed just the same!

not that this makes selling out to the man any better, but i read an article awhile ago saying that Jack White was a HUGE fan of Coca-Cola. He was quoted as saying it's his favorite beverage, he drinks several a day, thinks it's one of the best things in the world, etc. So I guess if he was to pick a corporation to pay him lots of dough for a jingle, Coke would be....IT?

Well, I guess that makes sense, what with the red & white fetish he's always had. Maybe I'll just write this off as a warning, with double secret probation.
