An analysis of instant commercialism

An interesting event today online that I’m calling “instant commercialism.” Here’s the breakdown:

Of course…Jenna is probably not pledging her allegiance to either rock or the Dark One, but is more likely giving the “horns” from the University of Texas where she is a student. Judging from the fact that her mom and dad have both been caught on camera doing it, seems a family kinda thing.

In any case…in a roughly two hour period we went from “odd pic of first daughter” to “buy the t-shirt”. Behold the power of the Internet!
