Kanye West lectured at Oxford, and it was everything you might expect

As an invited guest speaker at Oxford, Kanye West took to the lectern to deliver a lesson in Yeezeology 101 yesterday. Here’s just a little snippet:

"We’ve been sold a concept of joy through advertising, through car advertising, through fashion branding. It’s not the concept of time, time with your family, time with your friends, the little time that we do have on earth and what we do with that. It was somehow sold to us through a Gucci bag or something. Time is the only luxury. It’s the only thing you can’t get back. If you lose your luggage – I’m not gonna say the obvious brand of luggage that I’d normally say because I’ve got a meeting with them soon – if you lose your expensive luggage at the airport, you can get that back. You can’t get the time back."

West also took time to say The Matrix is “like the Bible of the post-information age,” to admit that he was “outshined…beat by a girl, basically” by Nicki Minaj on “Monster,” and so much more.

GIECO Unskippable Ads

Really smart work here, rather than rolling out normal GIECO commercials cut for pre-roll, The Martin Agency created ads tailored to the medium. I can not stress enough how smart this is, and I wish every client would buy into this thinking. 

Kudos to the agency.
