Do you remember Pee Wee Herman’s Playhouse, and how it always seemed delightfully trippy, in a way that you didn’t quite understand? Even if you may not have understood the very meaning of the word trippy?
Well, here is something that makes Pee Wee’s Playhouse look like Little House on the Prairie for all it’s boring mundanity. Ponponpon is the very first music video from Harajuku fashion blogger Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, of the hengao (strange face) and her very own line of false eyelashes. The song is surprisingly catchy, and the video delightfully surreal.
Colorful, surreal, insane, ridiculous–this is the perfect example of what Harajuku is, or wants to be. And if it gets stuck in your head, well…don’t say we didn’t warn you!
