First, before any sort of introduction, or explanation, I’d like you to give yourself a moment to simply stare at the above image.
You may think to yourself “Is this from some sort of magazine?” “Is it a still from a live action anime?” “What the heck am I looking at?”
Well my dear friend, you are looking at the internet’s newest sensation, a video known to most as “PON PON WEI WEI WEI” though it is actually titled “PONPONPON.” This is a video that model and Harajuku personality, Kyary, has recently debuted, to kick off her music career.
From the get-go, we can tell that this isn’t going to be your Grandma’s PV. From spinning brains, to eyeball shorts, this video grabs our attention right away, and sucks us into a world of mystery, disturbia, and above all; adorableness.
Seriously, if it weren’t for all of the stuffed animals, the bright colors, and even Kyary herself, one might mistake this video for an episode of The Twilight Zone. Luckily though, it pertains all of the cuteness necessary to give us comfort, while still keeping us interested.
So, besides the Main Kyary [as I like to call her] in this video, there are two more important characters whom quickly surface. There is the “Pink Girl With A Fruit Head”, and “Fat Pink Dress Lady”. These two legitimately disturb me, and I can’t seem to get the image of a floating pink head out of my mind as I sleep.
Regardless of my fears, however, it might be nice to actually discuss the content of this video. Alongside the song itself, there are fragments of a dance [which I am sure we will see surfacing the channels of many Youtube dancers (including myself) very shortly], and various clips displaying bees, skulls, toast, bones, and a slurry toys, which can usually be found sticking out of Pink Girl’s hair.
About this video, there really isn’t much else I can say. It is random, catchy, disturbing, fascinating, confusing, interesting, and will, I’m sure, become an internet sensation within the next few days.
Now it’s time for you to take a look for yourself.
Introduce yourself to the PON.
