By tag I don’t mean tags on a article or an article of clothing and by Air Force One I don’t mean the shoes. What I do mean is ‘tag’ as in Graffiti and Air Force One as in the plane the President rides in. So it has been seen that Marc Ecko has ‘tagged’ Air Force One–however according to a legal statement on the site the video “does not depict a real event. It is intended for the sole, limited and express purpose of entertainment and to induce you, the viewer of the video, to think critically about freedom of expression and speech and the government’s responses to the same.”
So in spite of my wanting to believe that it is real it is but a fake…or is it? Well, we’ll all know soon enough. As Marco Ecko made the statement that he decided to do this to start a dialouge…with the Secert Service, FBI, Department Of Homeland Security, and the NSA of course. Regardless of whether it is real or not the issue of freedom is something that is to be closely examined post 9/11 because “…tagging one of these planes doesn’t strike me as all that special…but maybe more so post 9/11…”
Anyways I think Marc Ecko‘s new game: Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is fabulous. I’ve actually been waiting for it and I think that if the game’s plot was “about tagging stuff in secured area without getting caught by the authorities” it would be to me fascinating–at least to me, as was the story to some. To whom: “for 42 seconds of my day, Marc Ecko had me entertained, and thats all I ask from anything on the Internet” and wondered “why hasn’t something like this shown up as a plotline on 24 yet…” and stated: “I didn’t even know who Marc Ecko was until five minutes ago.”
Alas, had it been real or if it’s real, heh, then, “He’ll go to jail. No doubt, this is some type of terrorism.”
Nevertheless props to you Mr. Ecko, your mag which I read, you clothes which I wear and to your company.
