If a racist caricature is so hilariously stupid that literally no one could take it at face value, is it still offensive? That's what I'm wondering after my umpteenth play of Day Above Ground's "Asian Girlz," which went viral on the strength of its ripped-from-a-Lit-video direction and cartoonishly stereotypical portrait of said Asian girls, who are praised by the band's Mark McGrath and Shifty Shellshock-analogue lead singers for their sticky rice? I'm not sure, but I think it's around the time that the titular, tattooed Asian girl uses one of the band members to scrub her cleavage as she takes a bath—an act that's immediately followed by one of them swimming into her vagina—that I figured there was maybe a joke going on. Surely, no one's aesthetic taste could be this gauche.

Why "Asian Girlz" Is Both Innocuous and Infuriating

You can help confirm this entry by contributing facts, media, and other evidence of notability and mutation. Upon its release in July , both the song and its music video became widely criticized for promoting racial stereotypes and objectification of Asian women.

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 possibly 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. 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.
