Day Above Ground’s ‘Asian Girlz’ Needs No Commentary

May I present to you the most WTF music video ever made for the month of July. Day Above Ground’s “Asian Girlz.” Girlz with a “z” because “s” isn’t gangsta enough. Imagine if 311 and Nickelback had sex. This band would be its gay love child.

In the first three seconds, you come to the realization that this may be tongue-in-cheek. But then after a full 30 seconds pass, you realize that the lyrics are so asinine that it may have crossed the line from tongue-in-cheek to borderline offensive. With lines like, “I love your sticky rice, buttfucking all night” and “It’s the Year of the Dragon, ninja pussy I’m stabbin’,” it’s hard to argue otherwise. I mean, sick rhymes, bro. Said no one ever.

It seemed Day Above Ground’s thought process was, “Let’s think of words that are related to Asian culture and put them all in one line. High five!”

Levy Tran, who stars in this video, already issued a semi-apology for setting Asians AND women AND Asian women back 50 years.

Day Above Ground also issued a semi-apology/explanation. What’s the over/under on whether they use a variation of, “We can’t be racist against Asians. One of our best friends is Asian.”

This song is us, Day Above Ground, making fun of ourselves (and many, many other guys) obsession with the always lovely, Asian Woman. It pushes this concept to an absurd level, but at the same time is endearing & submissive.. WE ARE NOT RACIST, HAHA! I mean, look at our band, it’s multicultural!! The guy in the bow-tie, our cutie bass player, was born in Indonesia, and he steals the show!! Please don’t take this tongue-in-cheek tribute to some of the most gorgeous women on the planet too seriously!! You’ll ruin the fun of it all!! Thanks for watching, sincerely!!

Oh, yep, there it is. Anyway, there’s going to be arguments over whether or not this was racist (racial?), but one thing is certain, this is awful.
