In the Future
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving (already a problematic holiday)
A day that has become, since early in the new Millennium,
A day of rabid consumption
A day of frenzied, lustful competition
A day, almost, of primal sport-like consumerism
A day when shoppers display their raw power
To seize the deal,
A day that accepts as its casualties
the innocent lives of children, women, and men
that are drowned in the tsunami of it,
A day that Symbolizes the Commencement
of contemporary Consumerist Holidays
In the Future
Black Friday will be a day of sober mourning.
A day when we bow our heads low
to the lives that were lost in the name of consumerism.
A day when we stay home with our families
After our day of Thanks-giving
And appreciate the simple blessings
of the trees, the air, the food we've been given by the Earth.
A day when we remember the chaos
and madness of mass-consumption.
The societies that it destroyed,
The plants and animals it drove to extinction,
The cultural diversity that it erased.
Black Friday will be a day
when we reflect on what it is to desire.
A day when we take measure of how the quality of desire
manifests itself within us,
to the benefit or detriment
of those with whom we share this life.
A day when we set intentions
to right the imbalances
that its unchecked reign has born into this world.

Felly Kilingi, the model in the video is not the singer. The Lyrics and Vocals are by Y Kid K.
"The track that became "Pump Up the Jam" began life as "Technotronic" (which later became the project's official name), an original instrumental that Bogaert released under the name The Pro 24s. Based on Farley Jackmaster Funk's "The Acid Life", this instrumental initially included vocal samples from Eddie Murphy's "Delirious" live set from 1983 and was months later replaced by newer music, along with lyrics and vocals from Ya Kid K prior to the song's international release in September 1989.
The song became a worldwide success, eventually reaching No. 2 on both the US Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart in late 1989 and early 1990. It became the first house song to reach the top ten of the US Hot 100 chart. It was also one of the first songs outside Chicago to pioneer the hip-house genre, a fusion of house music with elements of hip-hop." - wikipedia
