50 Cent’s “Amusement Park” now has a “Carousel”

50 Cent’s “Amusement Park” now has a “Carousel” thumbnail

Not sure if 50 Cent or his fans will be seriously considering buying a Philips 21:9 cinema television after seeing this, or if they’re just a bunch of  ’window shoppers’, but the hip-hop star has… used? Borrowed? Appropriated? Joined forces with Tribal DDB Amsterdam’s Cannes Grand Prix winning ‘Carousel’ spot. 50 has used the Philips ad as a major theme to the video for OK, You’re Right, the single off his upcoming Before I Self Destruct album.

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

The video fully acknowledges its source material, and 50′s official YouTube channel even mention’s ‘Carousel’s’ Cannes win. But it will be interesting to see where this goes. 50 got a kick-ass video out of the deal, but will Philips see an upswing in top of the line TV sales among the artist’s fanbase demographics?
