The Japanese have always been seen as a very reserved, and generally chilled out people. And I’ll be the first to admit; I’m a huge fan of anything Japanese… However, it seems the tighter the rules are, the crazier the people get. In such a reserved society, people need to be able to express themselves somehow. But in this music video, it’s hard to tell if “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu” (the artist) is trying to express herself… or, is high out of her floating skull.

And you thought I was joking…

Her video called “PONPONPON” has 39 million views as I’m writing this… That’s a whole lot of stoned people on YouTube. Apparently the entire video took just 24 hours to shoot, and is also her first music video. She’s a fucking natural! The videos’ director says he wanted to combine the idea of “a room of a girl who isn’t good at tidying up” and “a taste of the 60-70s”. Now, I wasn’t around in the sixties or seventies, but if it looked at all like this video, then hell; where’s my time-machine!?

The video is filled with a whole bunch of insanity; eyeballs being thrown up,  a great-colorful-shark and a girl farting a variety of colors…

“That clown I ate earlier is coming back to haunt me!”

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love this video, and even though I don’t understand a single word of the song other than “you make me happy” I think it’s pretty damn catchy. The lyrics are apparently full of hidden meaning… since I don’t speak Japanese, I’ll just take their word for it. Still, I’m not sure what deep meaning “pon, pon, way, way, way” has, but it must be mind-blowing.

Well, here’s the video (note: watching while high or intoxicated, is not advised… but do it anyway!)
