Shop Like You Mean It

Shop Like You Mean It - the stores are open! Here to inspire you to hit the mall is a massive commercial collage, set to a sludgy shop-til-you-drop soundtrack. An exploration of the visual language of '80s and '90s mall culture in America and '80s high-pressure consumerism becomes increasingly uncomfortable as the consumer pressure extends to the entire female gender. So come on down to the mall and shop like you mean it -- the mall is waiting for you!
