White Boi Disco and Jamaican Jazz

I was crushed - my favorite song coopted by a brand manager for a certain light beer with lime. Watching the Olympics, I kept hearing Santogold. In the commercials, in the segments about the Jamaican sprinters, etc. The network and the beverage maker, targeting me. You cannot escape Disneyfication of your own private culture. We all live in a Kingdom. How did I hear about Santogold to begin with? Is the music blogosphere more precious than old media? Somehow cooler?
