You know you're in for a sweet treat when the first sequence to a video is inspired by Sailor Moon. Remember when Serena (Sailor Moon) would always be late for school and she would run down the street eating her breakfast? Well this music video is the real life version of it. But instead of having cute and sexy Sailor Scouts, we get creepy Sailor Scouts with numbers painted on their faces and a break dancer dressed in Sailor drag with an equally creepy looking mask. In case you're wondering, yes, I'm easily creeped out.
For the love of Japanese culture, I wish I could understand the language. I have a feeling a lot would be explained to me. Well, maybe not everything. I think I would still be baffled by many things. Googley eyed onion anyone?
Despite the fact that "Candy Candy" is insanely catchy, the costumes are kick-ass, and even the onion is kind of cute, my curiosity is peaked to its extreme. Why are the backup Sailor Scouts numbered, and of all the places, numbered on their faces?! Isn't that a bit of an inconvenient spot? And what is up with the masked break dancer? Did he really have to be masked? Is his face so grossly disfigured that the producers had no choice but to hide it?
One thing is for certain though: candy candy yummy yummy.
