Flags in the Cake Song "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" 2001
The California Flag appears in the music video Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake 2001. While Ren-Wang Loi listens to the song the flag of California can be seen in the background.
This video heralds the future of the 21st century with a focus on the perspective of the masses, as is the case with Youtube, Facebook and the Internet. People with negative, mixed, and positive reviews of the song are given airtime. The reviewers of the song are the stars of the official video. The reviews engage the camera with a special kind of honesty that flies into your face.
It looks like there are some commercial flags flying in the background by PIER 39. The people oddly speak more with their body than their lips.
Here an elderly man is wearing a button with a pink flag on it. It is nearly impossible to make it out. If you know please let me know.
