Peace, Love and Crap

Pardon my brief rant but the Common Gap ad is making me mental. Especially when he separates the word mistletoe so it says:

blah blah blah blah under the mistle
toe when i flow blah blah blah blah.

As a fellow rapper (hip-to-the-hop) I must say that my boy, Common could have really done something special with his GAP RAP.

Like for one, he could have rhymed Gap with Pap:

Smear! You hear? Have a Happy New Year.
Bringing all the peeps mad holiday cheer!

Or something about being on Santa's lap.

Ask me where I be. I be on Santa's Lap
Dreadlocks in his beard and a woolen cap.

OR! Wait for it. He could have gone with "slap" as in:

Slap the ho ho ho... don't you know, know, know.
I got a hoodie pulled up over on my fro-fro-fro

Or he could have gone all Left-Eye Lopez (RIP) on that bitch and made a statement about condom-safety and Chlamydia:

Wear your condom, kids, so you don't wake up with the clap.
Then go and give it to your girl, peace love, ass slap.
Give it to your girl. Peace, Love, No Clap!"


So in conclusion:

Dear Gap.

Please make more commercials like this.



Breaking stuff is so much more impressive than rapping hood with hood with hood. Or you can call me. I rap for free. You see. Love always, GGC.

I loathe the GAP.

We now need to plaster the offices of the Gap's ad agency with notes from us GGC minions attesting to the righteousness of your rap.

"Yo, hire Rebecca for your next campaign!"

Yo GCC, no more G-A-P, worn-out ads they be, you can set us free.

Or something like that. Brava, girl.

we don't watch t.v so i haven't seen a gap commercial in years but i have seen their photos of audrey hepburn in their stupid ass windows. how she equals to the gap i have no clue but i'm guessing you can't expect much from them anyway.

That is what I call retail therapy. I have to admit, we dance to the Gap commerical, but I think we would love the last one even more. I never listen to what the words are in the songs, especially for commericals. I have been enlightened.

EX-cellent! I had never seen that one! And you've got that rap thing goin'in, GGC!

Emily | 9:16 PM

Holey shit how have I not seen that ad before. Fantastic.

Damn! That's exactly what my son does when I take him to the Gap!

sunshine scribe | 2:15 AM

You crack me up. Don't offer to do it for free! They should let you rap ... anything would be better. Not that you are anything. You are GCG ... rapper extraordinaire.

If you saw how husband reacts to that commercial you'd probably try to steal him from me.

the original song that spike jonze had was awesome but Gap thought it made it too dark. So Gap has an annoying habit of taking good artists and toning it down to make it much less cool. You can watch the original here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de4kBBYdtT4

you make me feel all xmassy and fuzzy with those rap-licious bits.

and Common needs to step it up to meet you in the ring, sister.

I have been a fan of Common since he was "Common Sense" and the "Can I Borrow a Dollar" days. That said, I've asked my 'hood peoples their opinions on his GAP clip and they (including one that works for the largest urban music radio station in NYC) think it's a banger. I like it too as does my three year old. However, I've never seen that trashing the GAP clip you posted until today and it's crazy! I get your point.
