I thought it was cool when a few independent bands would encourage their fans to do this kind of street promotion, real DIY type stuff. But, like most good things, the corporate fat cats got a hold of it and hung it and now it's become a stupid parody of what it once was. Metalica doesn't need a street team. They've got billions. I'll pass out their fliers when they pass me some of that moo-lah (or when they make another album that's worth a damn.)
Even major studio films have street teams these days. It must be on their list:
- Make myspace page
- Hire "indy" seeming blogger
- recruit street team.
- do a few laps in swimming pool full of hundred dollar bills
So, wanna be on our street team?
