Carly Simon is remixing her 1972 classic “You’re So Vain” as an anti-Donald Trump anthem.
For the very first time, Simon has allowed the use of her hit in a political ad, which was paid for by pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Patriotic Artists and Creatives.
Much of the song remains the same except for one classic line. The 71-year-old artist changed “your scarf it was apricot” to accommodate Trump’s tanned skin, rewriting it as “your face, it was apricot.”
“On the eve of the next presidential debate, she is alarmed at the prospect of Donald Trump reaching the White House and has joined other creative voices in making a definitive statement,” a spokesperson for Simon shared.
Fred Goldring, who was also behind the 2008 pro-Barack Obama “Yes We Can” video, and L.A.-based entrepreneur Jon Vein are responsible for the ad.
