Dance! Whoo-ooo! I wanna dance Dance DANCE Da-ance!

So, I know some of you might be wondering this: if Martina’s so bad at grocery shopping, and constantly getting distracted by other fun and flashy things in the store, why don’t I go with her? My answer: I have a deep hatred of shopping. I hate it. I feel totally fine and great before I walk into a shopping complex, but if I spend ten minutes in there I feel like my soul is whittling away. I don’t know what it is. I worked in a mall for a big part of my teenaged years (Pickering Town Centre represent!), and I think that from the crazy amount of hours I worked there I spent more time in a mall than most people will in their entire lives. I’ve had enough! Now, whenever I go shopping, I know exactly what I’m going for. I walk into a shop and within 20 seconds I know if it has what I need or not. No, I don’t want to hear about your sales. I’m not interested. And when I buy something, no I won’t give you my phone number, email, or postal code. I’ve given you my money. You’ve given me your product. Our relationship is over.

So, if you can’t tell, I have a deep animosity towards shopping. Martina knows this, so she often shops for groceries alone. I come with her, only if we have a list and I can run through the aisles and grab stuff quickly like there’s a zombie apocalypse happening and we have to stock up on resources. And, hot-damn! Anyone ever been grocery shopping in Korea? Don’t even get me started on shopping cart etiquette. Stop leaving your damn carts in the middle of the aisle and just walking away! Move em to the side! Let people pass! People leave their carts perpendicularly in the aisles so NOONE can pass, because pfffft screw everyone else, right? I don’t want to have to drive through your carts like a snowplow cuts through snow. Just…be considerate of other shoppers! YAAGGGHHH! Costco…Korean Costco…your shoppers are…*shudders*

*breathes into paper bag* I hate shopping.

Ok I’ll stop talking about shopping. I’ll tell you something you didn’t know about this video: we actually had the people over at My Korean Husband over at our studio at the time that we were shooting this. It was the last thing we filmed before going out for the night. They watched us in all our awkwardness, in real life! That’s not the point. Point is: Hugh gave this game a shot after we filmed the video, and he got a lot farther than we did. The game gets progressively harder, and you’re supposed to start pushing two buttons at once for some of the later levels. The two of us didn’t get that far. We lost in the opening stages. I bet I could have done better if I wasn’t being wedgied and wet-willied the whole time. Just saying….

Anyhow, if you want to unlock the next level of DDR, you’re gonna have to click on this button right here! You’ll not only level up, but you’ll get our videos before everyone else! Great success!

    You know I read that Uknow wants to invent stuff, you know. Maybe he invented this! Also this is prolly the best keyring ever. I collect keyrings. Keyrings rule!

    Simon this happens everywhere. Iy drives me crazy when i’m just trying to get one Item.

  4. discombobulated, yes?

    Yunho has said very recently that he wants to be an inventor…..where are the netizens(; Also milk is the staple of my life Uknow or not Martina how could you???

  5. Amy Sabre

    I want one of those, I love that kind of games. I’m gonna look it up online XP

  6. Elizabeth Piatak

    If I had this I would play this all the time!! I may also get bored with it if it kept on going but none-the-less I would have fun till I got bored.

  7. “Simon” was the original game where you followed the commands of the lights. There are multiple different companies who have come up with something similar. Anyone remember “Bop It”?

  8. Pretty Wotts

    yeah so my only question is… just how much is milk in Korea?

  9. I would lose so many hours of my life if I owned that thing. I love those kinds of games! They have an app version of DDR (I can never remember what it’s called, so I usually just call it the tap tap game and my friends understand) and oh man, when my roommate first showed me it, I was done for the rest of the night. They were all talking and watching TV and I was just stuck in a corner tap taping away on her phone. So addictive!

    it is fun torturing the husband!!! lol i do the same to mine lol

    It’s just not Korea where the shopping is bad. Here in the Netherlands I try to avoid shopping on Friday or in the weekend, because it makes me want to slap people and punt toddlers.
    Too many people in stores and too many people who have no idea how to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone. I really wonder what goes on in their heads “let me place my cart here so no-one can get to the shelves while I take an hour to pick out the thing I want” or “let me stop in the middle of the aisle when there’s also people to the sides so we’re sure to block the entire aisle” or another favorite is the couples who have to be surgically detached from eachother and never entertained the idea that sometimes they could walk behind eachother instead of insisting to be side to side the entire time.
    Not to mention people with a stroller for their kids who think it is a good idea to use it as a battering ram. I had one person ram their stroller pretty hard into my heels…while I was waiting in line for the store to open…I-it’s not like trying to sever my achilles tendon will make the store go open faster.
    And they are always sure to look at you like you are some weirdo if you move their cart, ask them to stop blocking the aisle or don’t want to make way because they insist on walking side by side.
    Just yesterday there was this little kid blocking the aisle I needed while his mom was standing there laughing like an idiot. At times like those I start debating whether I should dropkick the mom or the kid.

    And yes it should be obvious by now I do hate shopping as well, too busy and as soon as I enter a store it can be -10 degrees celcius and I will still start sweating. And sadly I live alone so I can’t pass it off to anyone. But if I never had to go shopping again it would be too soon.

    LOL! Oh Martina, you are so eviiiillllll! This is actually an easier version of the game than the “Simon” (says) old skool game because you just push it as it lights up, in the Simon, you had to listen to the whole sequence and then repeat it and it kept getting longer and faster. Still, takes concentration the ability to not lock up your fingers – good jorb guise!

    I really really liked the visual and sfx at the beginning of the video where Martina mimed playing the Simon game and there were lights and noises in time with her – very cool. But proof that the shot is too close? Kai bai bo is entirely out of the shot now! Your hand movements aren’t distracting, they are part of what makes your videos so expressive and so much fun. I did like the multi-screen effects but I think that the head shot might have worked better on the right side (for Western viewers?) since people tend to go “left-right-left-right” with the eyes which would have people switch back and forth naturally if the main action was on the left but when the main action is on the right, your eyes forget to go to the left – maybe Leigh (who has probably taken some classes on this) could tell me if I’m right on this one or not.

    Simon, I totally agree with you on shopping. I go into a store, immediately size up if I want something I want or not and am in and out in under a minute in some cases. Definitely do not give out personal information at the cash, it’ll just put you on another list. Grocery shopping in large stores like Costco does requires a list or you tend to forget what you went in for and get tired if you have to walk ALL the aisles. I never worked in a mall, but I find window shopping kind of depressing, if I want it, then I want to just buy it right away.

    A thought on last week’s hilarious WTF: just goes to show that if you package something in plastic with a label, it totally legitimizes it, whatever it is. Show up to party with 2 brand new pair of underoos with a string – get lynch mobbed out of there for perversion, show up with it in a package – hero! I was also happy that it was hilarious and PG rated so that my son could watch because he nearly peed himself laughing!

    Cyber_3 – only bought and keeps her PS2 for DDR workouts…….Konami FTW!

    • I’m with you guise on shopping. I could never do the “let’s spend 4 hours buying clothes!” thing. I do like to browse a little, but I’m really done after like half an hour at most. I just want to get what I came for, get in and get out.

      I laughed so hard at your point about the underwear tug of war. It’s so true! If you came up with that idea yourself, your friends would look at you like you were nuts and would be totally freaked out that you showed up and told them to put some strange underwear on their heads.

    of course Simon sounds grumpy!! Dothraki man warrior needs his MILK!!
    ahahaha designed by UKnow!! makes sense, it is a dance game!!
    i heard the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song too!!

  14. nonprofit_tech

    The panty tug of war was definitely the best WTF in a while. But this one was good too.

  15. Marianne J

    You guys are my favourite couple in the whole world. Just FYI.

  16. Norma Rodriguez

    :OOOO well is actually interesting this game is supposed to be designed by U-Know because actually TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho said recently that he’s been interested into inventing lately and that actually he wants to invent something like officially. So maybe this is a first try? O:

  17. Hina Aishiteru Maii

    OHMYGOD MKH WERE WITH YOU!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  18. jungyunho

    Haha was it really designed by Yunho?! Is this the thing he was mentioning during his interviews? Hahahaha XDDD

  19. Kimdition

    That 90s game that plays a melody/lights up the 4 buttons in a sequence that you have to accurately play back is called:
    Simon
    LOL!

  20. Soyou's Love

    What is this device called ? I want to buy one for my keychain :D

  21. bobinlisa

    Haha this brings back memory’s I play DDR like Martina does. If my friend starts doing to well is an open invatation to tickle him till he isn’t doing so well. He’s crazy good at it though.

  22. The ones here in America have really good hot dogs and free samples everywhere, but there’s always annoying children running around everywhere like NO GO AWAY I WANT FREE SAmPLES! *runs over children with market cart*

  23. Kimdition

    Flashy, strange, noticeable things always distract me when shopping! (…and a lot of the other time, too), are distractions more of a challenge in Korea then Canada/US?
    I also sympathize with Simon, large and/or crowded grocery stores are overwhelming. Too much stimulation and I spend the majority of my time trying not to get run over by the other shoppers.
    I’m amazed that there aren’t more injuries in grocery stores haha

    • Cassandra Bosquet

      Especially when you get in an aisle with a little old lady on those motorized carts!! Sometimes I think the toughest gang member from the hood would be a breathe of fresh air after running into a granny on a push cart taking up the entire aisle who will cuss you the hell out if you even dare make a comment about trying to get around her. I love the elderly, but I dare not mess with grannies at the grocery store.

  24. I’m on Simon’s side for this one. Milk and DDR could go hand in hand. (Unless you forgot the milk on purpose Martina, to get back into the store for something else that’s fun and cool.) :D

  25. Janet Okabe

    Grocery shopping i can handle, but clothes shopping for more than 5 minutes? =Q= u can definitely find me in somewhere in the blanket/furniture aisle at Ross store snoozing while my tongue sticks open like a dead lizard *derp face*

  26. swimstrong

    i wish my grocery store had cool game things. the only thing i get distracted by are donuts…. oh but did you ever play bop it? it reminds me of a more boring version of that! lol we had bop it EXTREME *said in booming voice* i was really bad at it. ahha

    Oh Simon, I feel your cart pain. The other day I was caged in an isle by two people who decided the middle of the isles was the best place for their carts. Not only that both had kids running a muck which blocked my exit even further. When I finally found a path to freedom the one lady with the most kids looked at me like I was the insane one it here way. I had a basket by the way. Shudders. I hate grocery shopping also but I live alone and my cat refuses to go the store for me so I fight the battle for sustanince.

      When that happens to me I just go ahead and push peoples carts out of my way. If they are near by they either don’t say anything or say “sorry” like they were totally unaware that they were blocking the entire isle.

  29. Renee

    What even is the point of that? lol
    And, yes, that was totally Pirates of the Caribbean.

  30. Evil Candy

    You guys remind me WAY too much of me and my sweetie when it comes to apologies and competitiveness! Did Martina ever try it again?

  31. 嘉♥艾 'ㅂ'

    I want that thing! It’s so much cuter and more fun than Super Junior shake and tap-tap!

    • What is this “Super Junior shake and tap-tap” thing you speak of?

      • Shake is this app on the itunes store and its like the game app Tap Tap but all the songs are kpop. but there are different versions like Girls’ Generation Shake, Kara Shake, 2ne1 Shake, 2pm Shake, Big Bang Shake and theres a bunch more! im not sure if its on google play if you have an android phone

      • 嘉♥艾 'ㅂ'

        Super Junior shake (amongst the others like SNSD shake, Kara shake, Big Bang shake, CNBlue shake…) is some game whereby you have to touch the corresponding buttons on the screen. You can choose the difficulty and song that you want to play. Tap-tap is an iphone app that is very similar, but it does not have any kpop songs. I prefer Shake though(: You can download shake on Android and iPhone, but tap-tap is only on iPhone. (:

        It’s like Tap Tap Revenge, that gaming app that was ridiculous popular all those years ago. Dooub Inc made a bunch of apps just for K-Pop songs, including SNSD, 2PM, 2NE1, Big Bang, Kara and my favourite TRAX. The only problem is that TRAX Shake doesn’t work with iOS7. //crai

      • Loos. I have Shake on my iPad and play it when I am home sick. It gets really addictive and hard. And you learn to hate particular songs because they are too hard to play and you never get a high score. My favourite songs are the ones I am awesome on. Like Simon I hate failure.

    Martina made the right choice. Milk isn’t that important.

  33. Karen Rivera

    I know the feels Simon! I feel like I’d be sweating too if I played that game.

  34. Randi Drew

    I vote for Martina’s choice, I love rhythm games and am totally lactose intolerant. XD
    Also Simon- GRACE UNDER PRESSURE!!!

  35. Amanda Keith

    It’s not just the Korean Costco. :(

  36. Marquiem

    But… I seriously expected there to be a voting poll in the blog section of this video. I wanted to vote for Martina >: *votes for spudy instead just to spite you for not having a poll and getting my hopes up*

  37. Alexandra

    Reminds me of the simon says game. This one looks alot better tho!

  38. Jennifer Davies

    Hehehe..Martina gave Simon a wedgie :P
