Best Silly Media Ploy Pulled By Two Art Students From Chicago (2008)

FISCHERSPOONER

FISCHERSPOONER suck. Casey Spooner can't sing, and Warren Fischer's beats are retrograde. Their costumes are amateurish, the dance routines look like a high school cheerleading squad's interpretation of a Janet Jackson video, and just think—they got $2 million for an album that won't see the light of day in the U.S. until next year, $300,000 to produce three exclusive Soho shows at the beginning of the summer, and the downtown New York cognoscenti eating out of the palms of their hands. They've even admitted they suck. They're laughing all the way to the bank.
