Talking about someone not getting it. He was walking in New York City with the altered skyline behind him in some shots. And he sings this simplistic paen while being paranoid of the MSM:
Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would've never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on the door
When you trust your television
What you get is what you got Cuz when when the only information ooohhh,
They can bend it all they want
Then there are the graphitti artists that are filmed also during this music video. By the end of the video we get such deep concepts on billboards as 'Exploited!' with images of crossed M-16/AK-47 and a bullet and the ever multi-useful 'Think!'
Glad I do not have any John Mayer CDs. It seems he has the intellectual depth of a slip&slide.
