The Pope, A Sheep, A Nerf Gun, and Boobs

…and other things as well. Your friendly neighborhood Skepchicks were sent the following video from the band FUJI MINX, a name which I understand by the CAPS should always be SHOUTED. I actually haven’t heard the music because I’m currently in a hotel bed in Copenhagen with some dude sleeping next to me, but I watched the video and had a sleep-deprived Surly Amy and an inebriated Elyse evaluate it for me. Our chat after the jump.

  1. Interesting enough to see if they are playing Glastonbury…apparently not.

    (Hey, just a thought, anyone know of any skeptics or related meets/events happening at Glasto? It would be good to counteract the new age gullibility)

  2. Hi there!

    I probably would have been able to make a more intelligent response about this video last night when I was at least as drunk as Elyse. [nods] But the boobs were rather nice. [nods]

    Regarding Lady Gaga: I recently had a theory that Marilyn Manson had intentionally disappeared from the limelight so he could spend a year in Thailand getting an actual sex-change so he could become Lady Gaga. I mean, the two of them LOOK alike, they have the same flair for outrageousness, and we know Manson was totally into androgyny. It just seemed like something he’d do.

    But then the Nostalgia Chick dredged up a video of Lady Gaga in her sweet, innocent, cute little girl-next-door days, effectively destroying my precious theory.

    (Unless … she’s in on it … ) [tinfoil hat]

  3. i liked the visual style, something a bit reminiscent of Kenneth Anger in some of the scenes, but must agree the music was rather repetitive and not very interesting.
    Also, does she not say “I breed it” at 1:16? That reminded me pleasantly of Moistboyz (Crank).

  4. @Bjornar: “One more what?” Sheep, apparently. They only had the one.

    I don’t know much about the genre, but I judge music thusly: listen to it without the video. If it stands up on audio quality, it’s a good song. If it’s only enjoyable with the video, it’s a good (short) movie. That being said, this was neither.

    Some vids have gratuitous T&A. This vid had overt T&A, so it needed gratuitous sheep & Nerf guns (S&N). I can dig that.

  5. The nerf gun made me think of that Jon Lajoie video with the tiger and the toy guns. I’m sure this has made the rounds over here because it’s, well, made everywhere else, but just in case:

    Otherwise, really 90s. Even the video is reminiscent of those Marilyn Manson or, before him, REM videos with people doing weird stuff for the sake of weirdness. I’m not a big fan of industrial rock, but it’s better than Celine Dion I guess.
