File this under, “Girl, you so different.” Word to Fresh. As soon as the beat for this song dropped, I instantly thought of the Hello Girls as fifty shades of Josie and the Pussycats. A few minutes later, I also pegged them as the OMG Girlz after puberty. Or in Meagan Good’s case, the OMG Girlz after their 10-year high school reunion.
That’s not shade. That’s the truth of our driver’s licences speaking.
Now someone explain this video to me. So they’re at the Kwik-E-Mart dancing over the joy of Funyons when they run into a Melanie-less Derwin from The Game outside near the ice cream truck. He in turn treats them to some ice cream to beat the summer heat after being treated to a dance inspired by the girl who hangs with Scooby Doo that says “jinkies” a lot.
After that, they hit a party for Solange kind of Black people where a guy impersonating Heath Ledger’s version of The Joker comes to spook the trendy coloreds in the room. However, it’s like a dream because Meagan wakes up the next day dressed up like Eartha Kitt as Catwoman in that old version of Batman.
So why is the midget harassing them after demanding oral fixation?
And then – SPLAT – The Joker wasn’t a dream he was real and demanding that Meagan pay him for Eartha’s costume renter. Does that make him a bill collector?
Is that it?
Oh, don’t look at me like that. I’m making a bit more sense than this weird ass video does. I understand paltry video budgets means everyone’s got to step their creative cookies up, but within reason, folks.
In theory, I want the Hello Girls to succeed because as I mentioned previously elsewhere, there’s a dearth of girl groups and we really need to get them poppin’ again. People are so selfish now. All about “me, me, and I.”
However, this song and video aren’t making me go, “Oooh, I can’t wait for more of them.” I’m just sitting here…confused.
Hold on, I need to think of something positive: Meagan Good’s husband is fine and friendly. Meagan Good seems fine and friendly. They’ll have fine and friendly children.
Wait, that has nothing to do with the video. Well, I don’t know what the video is. Might as well tray from the point of it. They damn sure did. Good luck and shit, though, ladies.
