In his video Karl Ingar Roys mixes together many different commercials to give the work a completely new meaning. The message is presented just as fast as advertisings’ aesthetics, allowing the viewer to be tempted to interpret the work within an advertising critical context. One becomes seduced by the editing. Sentences such as ‘Apparently you never had it so good’ and especially ‘How clear do you want it to be?’ fall right into the politically correct interpretations of the commercial; that the commercial seduces us with simple solutions of eternal beauty, youth and success.But no; if you look closer at the video work, the video becomes something completely different.
