"The Jessicas" is a commercial created for the musical/pop concert/fashion show/new media installation PATTY, The Revival. Directed by Patrick Kennelly with music by Jonathan Snipes and Kristen Erickson. PATTY is based on equating the mythic histories of Patty Duke and Patty Hearst into one glamourous, tragic, redemptive, sordid, exploited, legendary über Patty.
The Revival is presented as if it is a nationally televised live broadcast event (like the Super Bowl) the audience is the studio audience for this fictional live taping complete with commercial breaks featuring characters from the show. This comersal features the Jessicas, Patty's friends/rivals and girl-power pop icon besties who are charting abroad but have yet to reach the the mega stardom that Patty has achieved.
