today’s post brought to you by Exxon Mobil and Foucault

5 November, 2008

I was watching TV on Hulu yesterday when an Exxon ad came on- the actor concluded that the corporation was devoted to human issues because ‘it is in our genes’. I thought that was pretty damn interesting- the genome as our new way of knowing, as the objective truth, that it contains both the history and future of all living things and corporations –but i couldn’t find it… so here’s three of their other current ads. I suggest you play all three at once so the rhetoric takes on a more (accurate) surreal mood.
