"A Jackson Scrimmage Event"

there's this funny little reggae/dancehall show on late night cable in the New York area, commercials for hair parlors in Bushwick with the production qualities of a cinema ad circa 1978, bling-wannabe videos with a clothes change every 15 seconds except the clothes are kinda dowdy... And the other week they played this:

Must have got the idea from "Paper Planes" presumably, but this uses a much bigger slice of "Straight to Hell". Indeed on the Myspace the song has "Prod. by The Clash" after it. (Another song is "Prod. by Sigur Ros"!!).

Shame about the sanctimonious video narrative though.
