Candy Candy – Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

I want to make it perfectly clear that I go jogging like this all the time. It’s important to have some carbs in your diet, for christ’s sake!

    You go jogging in heels?

    Sidenote: Aaaaaah my ears!!!!

    • Kylie Sturgess

      I go dancing in heels! The rest of the time I usually wear flats, unless they’re a really nice shoe. But I’ve never had knee-high pink boots. I’ll leave that to the pop-stars, I think.

      Check out the rest of her work at the risk of your ears! :D

        Heh I think my ears have had enough risk for one day, I’ll go back to metal. At least with metal if anyone suggests dancing, I can thrash my hair around & get away with just that

    I think that’s the weirdest version of the “waking up late and running to school with toast in your mouth” cliche I’ve ever seen.

      I’m transfixed by the backing singers who are merely numbers.

        That and my belief that her double is a guy? I’m not sure…

        • A. Noyd

          The double might be a guy. On the other hand, I think the whole video is meant to be a send up of Gwen Stefani’s work, in which case the double’s height and bulk is supposed to convey that she’s a Westerner (though the person in costume might still be a guy). According to Japanese Wikipedia, Takemura (Kyary) is a fan of Sefani’s music and she’s also famous for being a genuine Harajuku girl. So it would make sense that Takemura would call out Stefani and her four “Harajuku Girls” back up dancers as fakes, albeit in a lighthearted way.

            Ahhh. So that splains a lot. It is good to have background information on an otherwise quite surreal experience. Not how’s about that onion ?

          • Kylie Sturgess

            That onion is clearly a post-modernist comment upon the state of the economy. Or maybe it’s art. Not sure.
