Apalling ! Whitman must be rolling in his grave ....
Edited on Thu Dec-17-09 07:58 PM by UndertheOcean
Only in America can a company that sells jeans (Levi's) defile a great poem by including it in a commercial .

It is not enough that out of context snippets of music were exploited since the beginnings of the mediocre TV commercial industry .... now they are doing it to poems ?

3. more unfounded american exceptionalism
sure, of course this happens "ONLY IN AMERICA"

all those other countries are so much more sophisticated, wordly and genteel. none, NONE of them would ever allow a great poem to be defiled by occuring in a commercial.

they are all so much better than us.

6. Agree & Rec, but the biggest failure of the commercials is that they are dumb, all poetry aside. nt

7. "Onlyj in America", I'm going out on a limb and guessing that you're not much of a world traveler.
