Could LL Cool J Be A Spokesman for LL Bean and Live To Tell the Story?

This Onion video about the boycott of clothing company LL Bean by black people is pretty amusing:

African-American Boycott of L.L. Bean Enters 80th Year

In the wake of Obama and the new post-racial economy I'll actually be a little interested to see if LL Bean falls because they were supported by a white-sensibility system, or rises because black people were hating on the fuzzy new england goodness for no good reason, and as soon as Obama is rocking some Bean on a jog everyone will open their eyes.

If they are legitimized could the "LL for LL" promo spot be far behind? the cool j rap about how "he can't live without his LL. Bean" or "he needs Bean" or "doin' it and doin' it and doin' it weLL Bean..." would be hotter than wearing a polo sweater, timberland boots, j-crew hat and northface parka in the summer. word.

  1. I'd like to the boycott to end as well. I'd also lke the haters to stop cracking on my LL Bean Original Backpack. I know the sturdiness can incite envy, but still...
