Fresh from appearing in the new Microsoft “I’m a PC” adverts, Pharrell Williams and his band of hippity hoppers known as N.E.R.D have released a new album entitled Seeing Sounds.
While I was quick to judge the man for his ludicrous “I’m a PC, just like BG (Bill Gates)” comment in the new ads, I must admit I have checked out the new album and was shocked by one particular line in a song called “Anti Matter“. It goes a little something like this:
Kay, what’s this on your iPod
Tell me what you listening to
Why you jumping bout his money
I ain’t hear him mention you
iPod eh, Mr Williams? I guess “jumping bout his money” actually refers to Pharrell’s new friend “BG” when he hears this little Apple endorsement and thinks about his recent marketing spend.
Then again, “Kay, what’s this on your Zune Player” probably wouldn’t have worked…
