Avril Lavigne's video for "Hello Kitty" might possibly be the laughing stock of the internet. After avoiding watching it, just due to the fact that I'm not a fan of the song all the much, I decided to see if I agreed with the internet or not.
Most were saying it was am embarrassment, among other things. Personally, the video does not surprise me a bit, considering the song's content. The video, frankly, fits the song. The song seems to focus on "Kawaii" things, 'kawaii' means cute. However, its obvious that this song is far from Avril's best work lyrically. I mean, when a song says things like "Someone chuck a cupcake at me." and "Let's play truth or dare now, we can roll around in our underwear." Can you really expect a brilliant music video?
It could have been worse, it could have called down every Asian stereotype there is, or had some trippy special effects. The entire video simply has just left me thinking....what the hell was she thinking? Or the people who came up with the video, if she wasn't the mastermind behind it all.
For that matter, how did "Hello Kitty" even become the new single for this album? She has such better songs on that album, such as "Bad Girl" featuring Marilyn Manson, or "Let Me Go" featuring her own husband, Chad Kroger. Given, if they made "Bad Girl" its own music video, it could have a parental advisory, and an age limit on YouTube, but that song has potential to be a great video!
"Hello Kitty", frankly, got the video I expected -a crappy one. That's the blunt truth. Sorry Avril, this is probably your worst work yet. Though her outfit in the video was nice. Not worthy of wearing out and about for every day wear, but cute enough that it'd be a cool Halloween outfit or something.
