American Consumer is a music video project created in English 1101. The purpose of the project was to provoke critical thinking about something American – we chose good ol’ American Consumerism. More specifically we focused on the often unmet promises made by commercials looking to take advantage of the average buyer. Although the video is wildly satirical, we hoped it would open one’s eyes to the outlandishness of the advertisements they are exposed to every single day.
