Yeah, I know all the arguments. Bands need a way to make money, it’s exposure, blah, blah, blah. Sure, I sympathize. Just know that this is how cool you look doing it.
Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine goes totally wild over Legends Cup Coffee and endorses a KICK ASS Peruvian roast that “was so pleasing to taste and had the right boost [he] needed in the morning for [him] to prepare for another day of shredding!”
This makes me never want to buy another thing ever.
Ugh. This shit disgusts me and makes me feel embarrassed for the musicians. But even more than that, I feel sick thinking that there are actually people out there BUYING these things. Are there people who are actually swayed by endorsements? I don’t get it at all. It seems so transparent.
I’m not trying to be some sort of ethical snob, I really don’t understand the mentality behind any of this.
