Song of the Day #1,929: ‘Asian Girlz’ – Day Above Ground

asian_girlzYesterday’s viral video ‘Chinese Food’ struck me as a less racist, PG version of Day Above Ground’s ‘Asian Girlz,’ a clip that took the web by storm months ago.

I never really understood the outrage wrought by this absurd music video. It is so clearly over the top that it can’t possibly be taken as anything but bawdy humor.

Is it funny? Mostly not. But I have to admit, I laugh every time I hear “your mama’s so pretty, best nails in the city.”

Unrelated note on this video: Why the tattoos?? Such a beautiful woman defiled by such ugly body art. I’ll never understand the growing fascination with these things. Does that make me old?

[Chorus]
Asian girl, she’s my Asian girl
You’re my Asian girl, you’re my Asian girl
You’re my Asian girl, she’s my Asian girl
Yes, my Asian girl, you’re my Asian girl

[Verse 1]
I love your sticky rice
Butt fucking all night
Korean barbecue
Bitch I love you
I love your creamy yellow thighs
Ooh your slanted eyes
It’s the Year of the Dragon
Ninja pussy I’m stabbin’

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Superstitious feng shui shit (what)
Now lay your hair by the toilet
I’ve got your green tea boba
So put your head on my shoulder
Your momma’s so pretty
Best nails in the city
Pushing your daddy’s Mercedes

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
New Year’s in February (February?)
That’s fine with me (I guess)
Yeah, shark soup (What? Fuck it, we’ll eat it)
Oh, tradition, tradition, tradition, yeah yeah
Baby, you’re my Asian girl
You’re legally (best kind)
So baby marry me
Come on sit on my lap (right here baby)
Or we’ll send you back
And you age so well
I can barely tell
17 or 23?
Baby doesn’t matter to me

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Arcadia
J-Town
Alhambra
K-Town
Temple City
Don’t forget Chinatown
Get down
Happy endings all over
Bruce Lee

Toyota
Spicy tuny
Sashimi
Tasty Garden
Fried Lice
Sailor Moon
Wonton soup
Spring roll
Tibet
Foot rub rub a down down down
Fa ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra
Tofu
All over you all over me

    I find this video more misogynistic than racist. And while humor, bawdy or otherwise, can often be used as an excuse to get away with illustrating what would otherwise be deemed patently offensive content, the less funny or satirical the work, the thinner the vail covering up the offensive material. So, here, this is just not funny or satirical enough to excuse what appears to be the real intent: a juvenile soft porn video featuring a lusty possibly under aged Asian girl. I get the offense here, more so from women than Asians, though both have an argument.

    As for tattoos, I guess I’m old too, but I really don’t find the excessive body art attractive. And I keep thinking about what these people are going to look like at 60, 70 or 80 years old. Maybe by then they will find a more effective painless way to get rid of these tattoos.

    Well, great body, tatooed or otherwise. Otherwise, this is pretty dreadful.

    Yes, it is pretty dreadful; and I can’t understand the tattoos, but they are everywhere you look–young and old. So ugly.
