Somehow, the marketing of the Rip CHIP warranted a remake of the Devo tune "Whip It," reimagined as "Rip It," with new lyrics written by an ad agency . . . performed by Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale themselves. Also, a music video showing electrical contractors in Devo hats ripping shrink wrap from wire spools.
What the fuck? Devo can't be that broke; nobody is that broke. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume it's a situationist prank. If I find out otherwise, it's probably time to close the book on this whole "art" thing for good.
