Thriller! Braddock Badass LaToya Ruby Frazier takes on Levi’s in SOHO

LaToya Ruby Frazier, in collaboration with Liz Magic Laser, makes this fantastic video reflecting upon the gap between commercial capitalist slogans by a giant jeans manufacturer, Levi’s, and the small Pennsylvania community of Braddock, outside of Pittsburgh, PA, where the scene is decidedly different from how the jeans company depicts it in a recent advertising campaign.

It’s a pretty brilliant performance that calls into question Levi’s own slogan, “Everyone’s work is equally important” — especially because some would question what this artist’s work is ‘worth’.
