Art, or political statement?

Why not both! (At least he didn’t let the flag touch the ground?) Street artist Saber rattling people with his entry into the Health Reform Video Challenge contest. While several “flag burning” amendments have made it as far as the Senate, descretation of the U.S. flag is protected speech under the First Amendment.

The problem with the video is that it's just not that good, and blows the message with sloppy execution. The point he’s trying to make by using life support sound effects doesn’t have anything to do with the visual. Slow fading death with progressive writing that you could actually read would’ve worked better, not the helter skelter mess going on.
