Move over Gaga it’s Kyary Pamyu Pamyu – JPop sunshine for the darkest day

I can’t really describe the excellent video for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s PonPonPon, other than to say it’s a great antidote to the darkest longest day, and strangely even looks slightly festive, in a warped Japanese kawaii kind of way. No idea what the video or song is about, but it’s the catchiest thing you’ll hear and the video is amazingly bizarre. Apparently Kyary is a blogger and Harajuku model (thank you Wikipedias!) and fashion businesswomen – by the looks of the latest video she’s aiming to be the next Lady Gaga, at least in Japan, and given these videos it’s very possible.

And nice that someone has already made the mashup that was in my head when I heard and saw the video – mostly the video which reminds me of Pon De Floor (supermatch name!), not sure if the maker of Kyary’s video knows Eric Warheim but they share the same sort of video game surreality TV feel…

And note I didn’t once use the phrase ‘like on acid’. I’m very proud of that, but it was a near thing. Dancing eyeballs, brains, singing skulls, Rambo geese and farting computer graphics (?) oh my! (Thanks to Niallist for posting the PonPonPon video!)
