best coast x nike

Download "This is Real," the b-side from Best Coast's When I'm With You 7" (my favorite 7" single of '09), for free for a limited time from Nike, of all places.

Expected, I caught her live a few weeks ago and between songs she'd say different things along the lines of, "now go buy some chucks" and "Join Nike trainer club, faster stronger longer"

just kidding

Best Coast Air Force1s would be so cool! or even a hoody. For some reason this does not surprise me. But when I read it on my dashboard I thought they did a commercial with The Sun Was High or When Im With You and some 8mm shots of people swimming with Nikes on. Would have been a good commercial/high budget music video+shameless plug.

i like best coast - but you'd like to think maybe they'd consider the fact that nike is notoriously known for using sweatshop labor. not that a company like american apparel would be that much better. using your music to promote, or more-or-less endorse a corporation like nike is kind of lame and disappointing...

Who cares if Nike is promoting her music? Some of you guys take yourselfs way too seriously. The fundamental thing you need to get over is thinking you actually have a personal relationship with the artist. Who are you to judge Bethany for allowing Nike to promote her music when you most likely don't even know her? What you should be doing is basing your relationship to the music only. If your relationship to the music is a positive and beneficial one, then any well-meaning person would want to see other people enjoying it too. That's the only way that indie music fans are going to get out of this stupid and pretentious authenticity argument that needs to come to an end. Indie music should be celebrated in popular culture. We all identify ourselves with brands and labels anyways, why not allow the things you love to be part of one of the most influential brands in the world? If this bickering continues, we are just going to find ourselves in the same self-depreciating irony-filled hellhole that so many indie music fans are in now. Lighten up, it's a new decade and the world is full of opportunity and possibility.

"If your relationship to the music is a positive and beneficial one" lol.

That's probably the stupidest trio of rhetorical questions I've ever seen.

When you spell 'self-deprecating' with the more obscure (but still acceptable) spelling 'self-depreciating' you make the 'hellhole' bigger by being both 'pretentious' and 'ironic'.

Enlighten up; because the noughties have become the 10s, Nike decide that they'll start respecting basic human rights is NOT one of the world's possibilities.
