So I'm trying to figure it out...

Is the Gap commercial featuring Audrey Hepburn cut out of 1957's Funny Face and put against a white background and spun around, editing-wise, to be made to be dancing to AC/DC's legendary "Back in Black" a brilliant, post-postmodern mash-up endemic of these Millennial 21st century times--or very, very disturbing, in that it's being used to sell jeans to a generation that knows neither her nor the song--??

Discuss.

If you're wondering about Gene Kelley, it already happened: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7653924879522661423&q=vw+rain&pl=true
