For Your Ironic Consideration: The Original Anti-Iraq War Music Video

Hey it's part of the zeitgeist to be anti-war. It's also trendy to be ironic. How, but how, do you make an ironic anti-war statement?

It has something to do with Al Jarreau, Sebastian Bach and MC Hammer.

Yes, you just saw Michael McDonald and Iggy fucking Pop in the same music video.

Update: Stereogum linked to me again. Thank you. And, in case you don't know who Stereogum is (I've been assuming you do) it's an awesome indie rock blog. What sets it apart is its attention to pop minutiae.

Great find!
