Official music video for "Sold", consisting of over 50 commercials with their taglines and calls-to-action replaced with subversive new messages- the second single off May 2012 LP "Lies Synthpop Told Me", Spruke's second major LP release and sixth release overall. Songwriting, performance, recording, and production all by Spruke. Video rendered by Laura Grace. Spruke is the main project of Buffalo-based performer Bill Boulden. All edits made, logos repurposed, and corporate messages subverted by Laura Grace. All effects and revolutionary subconscious messages implanted by Laura Grace. All blind consumerism noticed by Spruke but brought to you by years of capitalism.

I bought a bigger TV so they could show me the ad For the smaller PC Than what I already had I said I needed more shows And bought the satellite dish So they could insult my clothes In a different language I needed someone to hold So I went to the club Where they sold me a drink And the promise of love And then I needed a break From all the stuff in my head So then they sold me to sleep In a vibrating bed And now I fancy a girl Who didn't think I was cute So now I got a new job So I could pay for her food I bought a fancier tie To match my fancier suit And bought a fancier car To make the longer commute But as I find more success I find it harder to pace I'm getting deeper in debt And now I'm needing a raise And finding money to pay It got increasingly hard So they sold me a card To replace my old card That replaced my old card When I had a new card Three months interest free Rest go in the graveyard And since they sold me champagne A doctor said I was ill I had to buy his advice So they could sell me a pill And when I bought the champagne I guess they sold me some steaks But now they're clogging my veins I guess I bought some mistakes And then they said I might die From all the things that they sold So then I insured my life In case I never grew old And then I looked at my soul Iknew I had misbehaved And then they sold me a god With the power to save And then I looked in my heart And I finally forgave The ones who sold me my death Before they sold me a grave
