Music is apparently names and not sound

This music video embarrasses me. I am ashamed to be a member of this society. I almost feel this video was an experiment. Take two big names, have them sing a ridiculous song in a video that makes absolutely no sense, and voilà, hit. Have we sunk so low that "hit" music has nothing to do with the music and is all about the name that "performs" it? Have we completely lost touch? What does plastic guns (Even the ones meant to resemble real weapons were completely unrealistic) that shoot cheap CG flashes of light (that any 10 yr old YouTube veteran can reproduce) have to do with video phones? Why on earth make a song that (assumed) praises an old and unremarkable technology that is mostly hype in itself? There is no message, no artistry, no congruency. The only reason this song has any success are the two names on it. And that is what I am so embarrassed by. The state of this society to judge MUSIC by things that have absolutely NOTHING to do with the sound itself. What kind of message are we sending as a consumer? Hell, apparently they don't even need to sing. Just take a famous person, put them in front of a green screen, add in a bunch of flashing lights and let them hum nonsense for 4 minutes. yay music...
