Chocolate Rain: Super Sell-Out or Super Smart?

11/30/2007 6:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We showed you Tay Zonday's newest "video" -- complete with corporate sponsored production value, backup dancers and a whole mess o' bling.

TMZ TV wants to know what you think. Is this guy the ultimate sell-out, or a marketing genius extending his 15 minutes?

Don't think he's a either a sell-out or that he really thinks about marketing. But I can say that he's brilliant, positive guy. He's mostly just focused on school and seems pretty flabbergasted by all the attention (from Dr Pepper or otherwise) his alter-ego is getting.
