Doc-tor Death

Say it ain't so, Joe

Posted on Thu, May 24, 2007 at 1:15 PM

I spent my teenage years in Doc Martens, mimicking idols like Joe Strummer. But now I would like to retrieve one of those wee boots and kick the ad exec responsible for this tasteless campaign. Dead rock stars---Kurt Cobain, Joey Ramone, Sid Vicious and yes, Strummer--in heaven a'la George Burns or Patrick Swayze--wearing gowns and Docs!! Seriously. And I was just getting over the fright of seeing Elvis Costello in a Lexxus commercial.
