Watching these weird Asian (the American version of Asian i.e. excluding Middle East, Russia, Indian Subcontinent etc.) songs will make you question the sun, the moon, the stars, your wife, kids, dogs and everything around you. From lot of movies we have seen, we already know that the Japanese, Chinese and Southeast Asians like it weird. There is ‘Middle East Weird’, ‘American Weird’, ‘European Weird’ and then on a completely different dimension, there lies the Asian Version of ‘Weird’ which has always been a notch above the rest of the world. For example, people who want to watch a fucked up horror movie usually lookup for ‘Fucked Up Japanese Horror’ or ‘Japanese movies that will Fuck You in the brain’ etc. Similarly, I landed up on this video called the ‘Awesome Asian Song’ and that’s how it all started.
- Awesome Asian Song
Believe it or not the video is called ‘Awesome Asian Song’ uploaded by the ‘Least creative person’ on the planet, who could not find a better name. This is a track by Kineski Narodnjaci and featuring Ivo Zvan.
As per ‘Mr. fakeeminem2k6’, the song is about three people who are happy after having Dog Soup. Though a simple translation of the first verse will tell you what the song is really about,
johnny moe phoned me on from my I cry alone, foam foam, ten ten, town to chum, young gay law. You done run me from my grandma, I cry alone.. me so horny I’ll drown all gone and run gay law. I so sad in my zone zone.
This is not the only song my Kneski Narodnjcai, and there are quite a few that would make the list, but I think this guy deserves a dedicated blog post. I will leave you with one more short video from this awesome dude, which is a must watch.
- Diarrhea Dance
Alright, QUIZ TIME!!!
- What would you do, if you see a cute Japanese girl holding her stomach?
- Get three more chics and make them work out to “I have a bad case of Diarrhea”.
Not exactly a music video, as this is from a Japanese Television series called ‘Zuiikin’ English’. Back in 1992, the Japanese people tried to learn English with the help of these videos. The series combines English language lessons with gymnastic exercise programs.
Another video from the series is again a hit, “How dare you say such a thing to me”, which obvisouly ends with a famous ‘English’ phase, ‘Hasta la Vista’.
- Random Japanese Music Video
I am totally speechless after watching this video and clueless about its existence. So, I am going to leave it at that, but this is definitely as weird as people who order fake shit.
- Aīn! Dance no Uta
It is done by a band called MiniMoni in collaboration with comedian Ken Shimura. I think the video has hypnotic ability. Even though it is meant for KIDS, it is awesomely enough to fuck up your mind too.
- Rollin Wang’s Chick Chick Song
The Chinese Pop Star, WANG Rong, aka Rollin Wang has tried to create a new viral that is supposed to be the next Gangnam Style. The video lacks the fluidity to become the next Gangnam Style, but has everything else, Chicken, Topless Men wearing weird masks, crazy singing, more chicken and I think, the Chicken drinks beer in the end and burps, which makes this video a complete package. IT might not become as popluar as PSY’s Gangnam Style, but definitely on a weirdness scale, it leaves Gangam Style way behind.
- マキシマム ザ ホルモン “え・い・り・あ・ん by Maximum the Harmone
As I was planning to wrap up this list with Rollin Wang’s Chick Chick Song, I stepped on ‘マキシマム ザ ホルモン “え・い・り・あ・ん’ by Maximum the Harmone. I have retained the Japanese name, as I am still trying to figure the out a much more English looking name. This one is for all the rock fans. The good thing about the video is, unlike the rest, it slowly towards weirdness.
The user reactions to these videos have been really hilarious too. I am quoting some of them below –
‘thank god for the subtitles, without them the song would not make any sense’ – Marcvie J. (the subtitles are in Chinese)
‘I dare someone to through town blasting this on their radio. Bonus points if you do it through chinatown NYC.’ – MajoraMajesty
‘Japan is really a gift to this world’ – I’M Denise
but my favorite, which completely resonates my thought….
‘Sometimes I ask myself….. How the hell did I get to this side of YouTube?’ – LOLNOOBCAKES
