So, apparently the Japanese have picked up on this as well.

May God have mercy on us all..

It is disconcerting how closely that band modelled themselves off Attack Attack. They have basically the same hairstyles, and outfits, the screamy dude yelling something unintelligable, they do the running man move, and the crab core move. They don't have as many breakdowns, but the autotuning is most definitely there with some added effects that make the words too hard to understand. I think the guy is singing in English, but it is so hard to understand I just pretended it was Japanese and it made no difference to the song.

It's as if some Japanese scientist looked over youtube, saw how many views "Stick Stickly" had and went "OH! GAIJIN RIKE THIS! TO THE CRONING RAB, QUICKRY!!"

Not okay.  It was a joke in bad taste, that some could find offensive.

Okay. Seeing as I am more or less impossible to genuinely offend myself, I have a hard time seeing the problem. I do however understand that some may be more sensitive to that than others, so I apologize.

But in all seriousness, I really do think that's what happened to some extent. Some record label exec in japan saw that this madness was becoming popular, sort of, and decided to create a group for themselves to profit on. I simply refuse to believe music like this happens "naturally".

I am torn because it is a bad joke in poor taste but also probably 100% what happened.

I mean "gaijin rike this, raito?" is a thing that I hear with amazing regularity.

Not exactly complex or clever humour but can we just be offended for once rather than decrying a minor slight?

No, they actually do when they think in English. It is a product of how they are taught in the public school system. Though textbooks usually hve examples in the roman alphabet, most japanese people do not know how to read it properly, so accompanying furigana (phonetic reading aids) are used and the word is effectively transliterated to and learned in the japanese syllabary. As a result of this, your average japanese english speaker (which really only comprises a very small percentage of the population) will talk and think like that whenever english is used.


I do want to note that this is all an aside to the actual joke issue.

Well, I just think english with accents is hilarious, and that is all there is to it. This video could have from any other country that ham-fistedly apes American culture, not necessarily just Japan. If I had made the same joke, but with a German accent, would people have reacted the same?  :psyduck:

I would, actually. I think the german accent is waaaay funnier.

Oh god now the idea of a german band playing this shit has popped into my head. And I know it will happen soon. Oh god no.
