National Symphony and 50 Cent. ha ha ha.
Beethoven, the original gangsta, gets a raptastic remix by rapper 50 Cent, splicing Beethoven's Ninth + In Da Club = omg, in a commerical spot for Glaceau’s Vitaminwater Formula 50 (50 Cent’s own grape-flavored invention).
It was recently rumored that 50 Cent (née Curtis Jackson) had bought 10% of the public stock a while ago, and on May 25 of this year when Coca-Cola Company bought Glaceau (the brand name behind Energy Brands beverage company) for 4.1 billion dollars, the rapper's share made him $400 million off the acquisition...but many sources dispute the truth behind this.
We at OC hate commercials and hate the infectious, viral mass marketing of crap being pushed down our throats, but we love to imagine living in a world where Temirkanov or Tilson Thomas could bring down the house with remixes of The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Big Poppa" or ODB's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya".
