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
