Rap video pokes fun at organic, premium food shopper
Wednesday 15 June 2011
When natural foodie-homies rap, they pronounce every syllable, throw in the word 'dog' for good measure, and bemoan the trials of parking and shopping at their local
Whole Foods Market, a high-end retailer of organic produce.
A YouTube video entitled, "Whole Foods Parking Lot" has been circulating around the web after first being uploaded June 11, and as of 8 AM GMT Wednesday, had received about 248,300 hits.
In the rap video, a clean-cut, natural, organic produce kind of guy - aka DJ Dave or David Wittman - rants about trying to find a parking spot at his local Whole Foods Market, on "the west side of LA."
When another hybrid driver tries to steal his parking spot, he spouts off a throw-down with the verse, "It's getting real in the Whole Foods parking lot/Everybody's trying to park you can feel the tension/I'm in electric mode, can't even feel the engine."
The video pokes fun at the Whole Foods customers: girls clad in skin-tight yoga pants and hipsters chatting on their iPhones in front of the quinoa section with their Starbucks coffees.
The retailer, which has locations in the US, Canada and the UK, courts specific consumers given their natural, organic bent.
