Here's 'Asian Girlz,' The Most Racist Song In Recent Memory (Video)

Today in horrible people doing horrible things: Day Above Ground released a song called "Asian Girlz," and it's about as bad way worse than you could possible imagine.

Judging by the reactions, "Asian Girlz" is either the most racist thing ever or just the most racist thing you'll see all day.

Here's what happens in the music video: The band is trapped in a bird cage while an Asian model strips out of a prim outfit to reveal lingerie and tattoos, while said band sings about things like fried rice and "buttf--king all night." As Buzzfeed noted, the fourth verse is actually just a list of Asian stereotypes. While this is happening, every member of the band goes on a date with an Asian girl, nights chronicled in Polaroid snapshots. THEN, the model in question picks up the bird cage and takes it (and the band) to the bathroom where she -- of course -- draws a bubble bath and lets the miniature non-musicians out for a dive into the water.

She then rubs one of them on her breasts while another one swims between her legs, causing her to moan, because who doesn't love the tender caress of a shrunken-down, racist non-rocker?

Not only is there plenty of racist stuff to get one's blood boiling, there's also this actual lyric: "17 or 23, it doesn't matter to me!"

Levy Tran, the "Asian Girl" in the video, apologized for participating in the clip on Twitter, while the band says they're totally not racist because --wait for it -- "the guy in the bow-tie, our cutie bass player, was born in Indonesia, and he steals the show!"

If she had DROPPED the birdcage into the tub, I might watch the damn thing.

They had to know that this wouldn't go over well. Desperate for publicity I guess.

Ok, I did laugh at "ninja pussy."

And of course, the band already showed its white privilege by saying "it's a joke and you all need to get over it!!!"

It's clear that the band thought it was the most hilarious concept ever. Can it really be called a joke when no one else is laughing, though?

I have a Christian Asian acquaintance who is going crazy over this on Facebook, but has never made a single pro-gay statement, not even though he knows many gay men and lesbians. It's a little entertaining to see him realize what discrimination feels like - not enough people are responding favorably to his rants, and he's getting angrier.
