    What you expect? they've both taken their graf to a highly comercial level and highly visible level - molson's figguring to make some $ off it. Granted I own a few Obey shirts as well...but still. It's a product and they're trying (and for the most part succeeding) at selling it to it's "target audience".

    More power to em - as an artist myself (digital and traditional) I say congrats on making $ off yer art - shit's hard to do and they're fuckin succeeding at it quite well.

    my comments about Molson sponsoring the show
    aren't really about a beer company being involved,
    but which Molson itself as sponsor. Maybe it's because
    I'm a canadian and up here molson's whole campaign
    is 'I am Canadian' so it's funny to see them sell to a
    market that is certainly a little more specific, and a little
    more underground and hip.
