SND48’s new PV is bugging me

A couple of days ago the full PV for SDN48’s 3rd single Min.Mi.Min. was released.

My interest in SDN48 has been dwindling greatly sinc etheir debut. GAGAGA was an amazing song, but then Ai Juseyo was just ok, and now Min.Min.Min is even lower than that. The PVs for SND48’s singles have always been on the same medicore level. There’s just nothing that stands out about this single. The PV does stand out but not for the right reasons. The PV stands out just for sheer weirdness. Which could be a food thing, but in SND48’s case it’s just not. Most of this PV focuses around SND48 in a giant cage wearing bug wings. Which isn’t really explained and is pretty much a mystery to me. There are also close-ups thrown in where they are sitting on the cage. And a few scenes where they are tangled in branches. And that’s pretty much the entire PV. No added exciting elements. No suprise endingwhere they all fly into a giant bug zapper. Instead the twist at the end they did add was pretty weird. They were being fished up by some giant who was standing on what looks like 50 different cage boxes. It made absolutely no sense to me.
I guess my real dislike for this PV stems from the fact that this PV is a complete rip off of Miley Cyrus’s Can’t Be Tamed music video. And since I’ve seen Min.Min.Min video before I’m obviously not going to be impressed with it.

What does being wrapped in branches have to do with being a bug?

Is it because it kind of looks like a rest?

Even the cages are similar.

Miley has a tree because she’s a bird, why do they have one?

This girl is pretty. I just wish the quality wasn’t so horrible. :/

This girl is pretty too.

This girl is too flashy.

Yeah, make sure you really emphasise the creepy bug wings.

Ok, maybe this is cool. XD

This girl is pretty adorable.

What’s with the ominous floating?

WTF is that?

No, I’m still confused.

Not really impressed.

Um…what?

SDN48-Min.Min.Min PV preview

The PV preview for SDN48’s 3rd single, Min.Min.Min, is out. And of course it has to be a minute and a half to spoil the surprise of the PV.

My reaction to the PV preview can be summed up in 5 words, “what did I just watch?” The main focus of this PV seems to be the dance scenes, like it is in most idol PVs. Hoever, the dance shot for this PV is hardly ordinary idol fare. The members of SDN48 are dancing inside of a giant cage. If that wasn’t odd enough, they are also doing so while sporting some shiny silver beetle/insect wings. Which doesn’t even begin to make sense. When SDN48 was wearing wings in the Min Min Daho energy drink  commercial I though it was a little odd. But never in a million years did I expect them to wear them in the actual PV. It’s just completely bizzare. And definitely WTF of Lol worthy. However, that initial reaction only lasted for a minute or two. After that I had the strange feeling that I has seen this all before. And then it dawned on me. That aspect of the PV is a complete rip off of Miley Cyrus’s Can’t Be Tamed video. But instead of a bird creature, they are bugs. (I’ll go more into the similarites most likely in my PV review.) And after I realized that SDN48 was copying that off of Miley, their whole bizzare, what am I looking at, quirky schtick was pretty much lost.
The rest of the PV preview just shows the girl’s close-ups, where they are sitting on the cage. And actually I wouldn’t mind if the whole PV was one giant close-up. The girls look super gorgeous in those black outfits. With their sexy, flowing hairstyles, and their smokey eyes, they just look to pretty for words. Seriouly phenomenal. This is probably the prettiest they’ve ever looked in a PV.

SDN48-Min.Min.Min. preview


A commercial for Min Min Daho energy drink featuring SDN48 has started airing. In the commercial we get to hear a short preview of SDN48’s 3rd single Min.Min.Min. And I mean a short preview. The commerical is only 18 seconds longs, so we pretty much only get to hear the very beginning of the chorus.

The song sounds completely different than their last 2 singles. GAGAGA and Ai Juseyo both had fairly heavy dance beats. This song is just completely toned down, and not really what I was expecting at all. I know SDN48 has a few slow B-sides, so it’s not really that new for them to make a song this slow. But this song so far doesn’t really fit with their theme. The song sounds too cute for SDN48’s sexy/adult image.  I don’t know, I’m just a little thrown off by the song. I mean, it doesn’t sound that bad so far. But it just doesn’t fit them.

SDN48 to release 3rd single

It was just announced that SDN48 will be releasing their 3rd single. The song is entitled Min.Min.Min. and will be released on August 17th.

I have a pretty love hate relationship with SDN48. It’s mostly hate though because I’m not into their overall theme. The only only really comes in because I absolutely loved GAGAGA. However, I wasn’t really impressed with Ai Juseyo. I do like Ai Juseyo more now than when it first came out, I’m still not all that enamored with it. Hopefully, SDN48 will mkae me incredibly happy and will release another song like GAGAGA. It seems to be a similar single already because both GAGAGA and Min.Min.Min. aren’t actual words. Now hire the same Korean composer from GAGAGA, and I’ll be happy.
