Woohoo! We’re finally back to doing Music Mondays after our trip to Mexico and California, and the first Music Monday when we’re back is…BLOCK B! If you haven’t seen the awesomeness of Nillili Mambo, check it out here:

 

Ok, for starters: sorry about wearing sunglasses for the video. I know it’s weird and alienating, but we had no choice. Our eyes have gotten a lot worse. The pink eye has spread to our corneas and we’re extremely light sensitive and half blind now. So, filming in front of the lights was realllllly difficult. Editing the video as well was crazy difficult. So, please forgive us if we’re not on our A game this week for editing. Also, we’re tying this blog post with our eyes closed, so forgiveness, please, if we’ve got lots of spelling errors here. We’ll be back to normal soon!

Back to the video itself, there were so many more things we wanted to do but simply couldn’t: that whole make-out scene was hilarious! For starters, they’re so clearly far apart that you could have put a beach ball between their mouths. Ha! And, more importantly, pause at the 3:02 mark and go forward frame by frame, right when Zico interrupts their fake make out session. THE GIRL IS HOWLING WITH LAUGHTER! Seriously: how demasculinating! “AYY GURL WE GON MAKE OUT NOW!” and she laughs in his face. HA! There was great potential there for another skit.

Also, maybe this isn’t skit worthy, but pause at the 2:05 mark. What is it that PO throws out of the window? It’s not a gun. It’s too small for that. It’s small and white. I have no clue what it is. My guess is it’s a leftover sandwich. Anyone got any other ideas?

Ah! This song and video was just so much fun, and we were really happy to review them. Awesome! Also, we’re really lucky that Block B’s management, Brand New Stardom, reached out to us to do an interview with Block B. Woot! We’ve been talking about it back and forth with them for a while, and OOOOH we were holding back on announcing it for so long! The timing was a bit difficult for us, since we were in California at the time that we originally wanted to do the interview, but we’re still super stoked that our schedules finally matched up!

So, we’re gonna be asking Block B a bunch of your questions, SO START ASKING! Leave your questions in the comment section below, along with your name and location, of course, and we’ll do our best to ask as many questions as possible. Make sure to thumb up any good questions if you see them, as well. Woot! This Wednesday we’ll be meeting Block B, and we’ll be posting the video as soon as possible afterwards, once we edit it all, sub it in English, and get approvable to publish it. We’re hoping it’ll be up by Sunday, fingers crossed!

Oh, and – if I were you – I’d make sure to subscribe to us on YouTube, follow us on Twitter, and Like us on Facebook. We might get some good stuff from this interview and might give it out to you awesome Nasties – you awesome subscribing, following, and liking Nasties, that is :D

Anyhow, if you like the song as much as we do (and you should, because it ROCKS!) make sure to pick it up on YesAsia and iTunes. And lastly, of course, since we’re sooooo off our game today, we have more bloopers than usual. Martina was especially off today, and was making up words that don’t even exist. Ha!
