Who's to say that the all seeing eye is just another marketing ploy instead of the complicated, convoluted conspiracy that we have been lead to believe exists?

I agree Cake. As long as we continue ascribe these symbols to a 'hidden cabal' we will not understand how the public is controlled by the Madison Avenue Masters. Marketing is a major controlling force in society and holds us slave to our baser instincts.

Musicians who use the all seeing eye do it because it looks cool.

People have been stating for years that our elite actors and musicians have been ensnared by the all seeing eye, and that alone is reason enough to believe that there is a shadow operation that wants to suck the mind out of your skull.
Kanye, Beyonce, Jay-Z...they have all been accused of being part of the 'illuminati' but is that the truth? are they part of a secret cabal that hopes to mesmerize us and indoctrinate us? I think not, and here's why.
Symbolism is a key part of marketing. Images, phrases and logos are used in excess to encourage brand association, and who's to say that the all seeing eye is not just another corporate logo? The most ardent of conspiracy theorists will argue that the use of the all seeing eye is just a way to let us serfs know that we serve the 'elites'. But those who don't know how the industry works are easily fooled and that plays into their hands.
When you see a certain 'tick' which is followed by the slogan "just do it" what do immediately think of? when someone tells use that their beverage "gives us wings" then who do we think of? And when pop stars use the all seeing eye who do we think of? the pop stars.
It's got nothing to do with the illuminati, the freemasons, or even the Jedi order- it's all about marketing. You may think that you are smart enough to recognize the symbolism and link that to a global cabal, but the truth is that those producers of music videos are subversive, influential, and from a marketing point of view, brilliant. We associate brands with athletes, and we associate music with icons. Who's to say that the all seeing eye is just another marketing ploy instead of the complicated, convoluted conspiracy that we have been lead to believe exists?
