"How to be Asian".... um....

Reader Leilani Torres sent me the link to this clip, and I'm not quite sure to make of it.

I know there's not enough time in the world to discuss every instance of someone putting something racially provocative on the Youtubes; I just found this rather interesting because it bears such a resemblance to Alexandra Wallace's "ching chong ting tong ling long" clip that became infamous a few months back. But at the same time, this one seems so ridiculous that it seems more of a joke and not really anything to get worked up about. The comments at WorldStarHipHop where this came from are mostly hateful (the term "f****** b**** is used frequently - I have no idea what that could mean). But I dunno. I still think this is dumb, but then so is most of the crap on Youtube. But I didn't actually find it particularly offensive. Should I have? Let me know what you think.

  1. Wow... has to be one of the funniest videos I've seen in a long time. Completely transcends "The Cat Burglar" from the Simpsons and "The sea was angry that day my friends..." from Seinfeld LOL

    I only think the reason you didn't find it offensive is that for such a reaction to occur, you need to be emotional. And that was one of the most emotionless, lamest, attempt to be funny I've seen.

    Don't people realise you have to dp something ENTERTAINING to try and bump your viewcount (unless you're Rebecca Black).
