Have you seen the music video for Avril Lavigne’s new song, “Hello Kitty”? It’s horrible and stupid in the same way that Gwen Stefani’s shit was in 2004, and it was go-written by Chad Kroeger. What are the lyrics like?
Hello Kitty, hello Kitty
Hello Kitty, you’re so pretty
Hello Kitty, hello Kitty
Hello Kitty, you’re so silly
Mina sako arigato! Kawaii! [x2]
I’M LAUGHING UNCONTROLLABLY AT HOW DEAD INSIDE EVERYONE IN THIS VIDEO LOOKS, I WATCHED IT LIKE 3 TIMES, I’M STILL WATCHING IT
Avril’s been pretty popular in Japan for awhile now… Watching this video, I can only come to two conclusions:
1) She and Chad decided to make fun of them in a music video. (Minna saiko arigato sounds like they tried to make “everyone is crazy” rhyme with “thank you” and did a quick google translate to find the closest thing to match. (I think it actually translates to “everyone psycho. Thank you!”)
2) this music video and song are a parody. Since Avril is a white person in Japan, and all the Japanese people all look pretty dead when dealing with her, it could be a video about how the Japanese see foreign anime fans when they come to Japan. (Evidence for this is how Avril seems to get overly excited by things that are common in Japan, her odd fashion choices, and the fact that many of the more overly excitable anime fans seem to know “minna” “arigato” and “kawaii” the most. Also, the fact that all the Japanese people she interacts with look pretty much done with her. I wouldn’t be surprised if she and Chad were in Japan for a tour or something, saw an overly excitable anime fan and how annoyed the Japanese were with them, and decided to make a music video. The expressions of the people around her were the decision of the music video’s director, and probably had to be okay’d by Avril. If she really thought this was a positive look to have, the background group would be just as excited as she is.
I’d be willing to be some Japanese Avril fans are getting a kick out of the video.
“Many of his innovations came from his focus on empirical investigation and reproducible investigation, which were alien to a field of psychology dominated by the theories of Freud.”— the Freud Thing came up at lunch again, prompting yet another wave of irritation at how his deification by academia helps perpetuate stereotyped views of psychology, his lack of scientific rigor, and his generally paternalistic and dismissive behavior towards both patients and people who disagreed with him
…based on my comp lit fields, I could probably write a BA thesis on Homestuck…
