It’s really hard to offend people these days. Like, it’s easy to offend types of people by saying stupid things, but to just make an original piece of content that is just universally offensive? That takes work. With lines like, “17 or 23, baby it doesn’t matter to me!” the new track Asian Girlz from megastar rock group, Day Above Ground is, well, about some white dudes who love Asian girls.
Warning: explicit/terrible abuse of language
First off, the whole “giant hot chick” thing was taken care of back in 1999 when Pamela Anderson ate those guys in the Miserable video. It was also apparently done in 2009 when Boogie Pimps did a sweet cover of Somebody to Love. Go watch this video, it’s way better than the Asian Girlz filth.
The boys at Day Above Ground kind of blew their chance here to make names for themselves. The band isn’t ever getting attention for being talented, so this strike at blatant racism + sex appeal is probably their only chance at relevance. That’s why it’s such a waste that all of the band member look like they just entered and lost a Red Hot Chill Peppers look-alike contest (they got fifth). Twenty years from now, when VH1 is on like their fifth run of I Love the 2010’s and are so desperate for material that Asian Girlz gets reintroduced, what will people have to say?
Thumbs down to Day Above Ground, Asian Girls, and anyone who decided to turn this video into a pro, or anti-feminist argument. Asian Girls is a bad song, by a bad band.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I got to go find me more Boogie Pimps. I like their sound.
