This has been in my workout shuffle. I was listening to it during my run and it occurred to me, this is a very problematic song from the perspective of a Social Justice Wanker.
- Cultural Appropriation. I am committing the crime of Cultural Appropriation just by listening to it. As I understand the modern social justice left, folks should just keep to their own kind, culturally speaking.
- The Video Objectifies Women. I mean, like, look at them. It’s they’re objects or something.
- The Girls Fingerbanging Each Other. See, in the video, they totally fingerbang each other. In California or Maryland, finger guns would get any elementary school kid an expulsion and a referral for violent anti-social behavior.
- This verse: “Check-it-out chocolate. Can I have a bit of chocolate?/But my weight worries me a bit these days.
However, chocolate. Can I have a bit of chocolate?/But wait a while! Wait a while! Wait! Wait! Wait!” That’s straight up body-shaming right there.
So in conclusion… I love Japan.
