Thanks to Boganette for showing me this. I can’t decide if it’s terrifying or brilliant, but I’m leaning towards brilliant. The weirdness starts at 1.40:
Kashiyuka is in a Japanese pop group called Perfume. I’m sure there’s all sorts of crazy shit on the internet from her fans. But this is surrealist gold. The first version I saw didn’t have the intro bit so there was no context – that was added later – but there were loads of comments calling him a creep. And worse. As though you can pick a sexual predator by the way they look.
It all comes down to who we think the boogey man is. If he was young and hot, we’d say wanky things like, “Oh, how very David Lynch-esque”. If he danced more, we’d say it too:
Thing is, you’re much more likely to be sexually assaulted by a family member or someone you work with, than a stranger who happens to look like a Hollywood baddie. Personally, I think Jude Law and Robert Pattinson look waaay creepier:
So, like I said, surrealist gold.
