This week we review Ayyy Girl by JYJ. Let’s start off by saying that the song is really good. We’ve been singing it a lot. Really! We do like the song! But, whoa, the video is a totally different story.

For those that don’t know, JYJ is a group made up of three members from the most popular boy-band in the world TVXQ/DBSK, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. They’ve got more fans than there are people on the planet, and we’re totally worried about saying something to offend the fan girls. As soon as the video came out we received boatloads of requests to review this video. So here goes:

The video is really disappointing. “Mirotic” in 2008 was one of the best videos of the year. This falls really flat compared to that video. A lot of this video is about them dancing around while everything’s collapsing around them in terribly rendered CGI. And then there are odd shots of them jumping in and punching the sky. Then there are these weird frame-lagging solo dance sequences. And there’s so much thunder and eagle screaming in the video that you can barely hear the song. Bahhh!

The video probably would have been awesome if it was released ten years ago. Now, with the standards we’re used to, the video was so bad that it was distracting. Also, if Kanye West was rapping in the song, why isn’t he in the video? Slow motion running and sliding over a rap sequence is just odd, especially if it’s done by people other than the rapper himself.

Really, it would have been better if they had just sang in an empty room, sitting on stools and looking serious. One of them could even be singing shirtless for all the fan girls out there! Or they could have filmed a club scene! Those never get old! Let’s get a busy club and one of the members of JYJ walking in slow motion up to a girl (not running up to her and tripping in slow motion) and then they sing to her. That’d be better than this. We understand that they’re trying to make it on their own now, but, really – this video just seemed a bit rushed and not all too well thought out.

Anyhow, at least what we can say is that filming the video this was really fun! Simon’s got bruises now after doing something like five takes of the slow motion run and trip scene. Not so fun. Martina insisted on the apron scene, and Simon apologizes profusely for it. We’ve got a couple of bloopers we’ll put up on our Facebook page tomorrow, so check em out! Also, we’ll announce the winners of the Girls’ Generation Hoot CD giveaway on Facebook tomorrow as well. Finally, big thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations! They’ve been really great :D

  1. Oh my gaaaaaaaaash! I just watched this music video for the first time, and it was awwwwwwfuuuuuuuul!!! But at least now I know where “rollin’ down muh sexy windows” comes from!

  2. Jessica-Robyn

    I come from the future! I can’t believe I’ve made it all the way back! I must warn you Simon and Martina “Ayyy girl” *rolls down sexy windows* has become the pick up of the future! The madness must be stopped, but it looks like I’m much too late! The damage has already been done! SAVE YOURSELVES!!!

  3. I seriously just laughed so hard I cried.

  4. Michikohime

    Oh my god. I just stumble upon this video few minutes ago, never watch it before. LMAO!! Made me think of the botched sequences in Xena Warrior Princess. It’s hilarious! Great piece of anthology : an example of what not to do in a Kpop video… They’ve really take the “hey girl” to another level. And Kanye, pshhhh, really?

  5. “One of them could even be singing shirtless for all the fan girls out there!”>>>totally agree to this lol n i was hoping it’s junsu :P

    am a huge fan of JYJ but i don’t like ayyy girl mv either.

    i guess this is why they never upload this mv on JYJ official youtube channel kekeke

  6. is this video started the ” ayy girl” and “rolling down yoour sexy windows” ?

  7. is this video started that “ayyy girl” and “rolling down your sexy windows

  8. i have to say JYJ kinda looked like Greek Gods and SHINee looked more like Demons/Fallen Angels/ Lucifer’s dark Generals… 

  9. I am really bothered.

    I watched this review more than I should have watched Ayyy Girl.  I love this review the best hahaha

    *sexy rolling window down*

  10. oh oh oh i think you guys should watch the making of the music video of Ayyy Girl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVvbHCTkyGE&feature=player_embedded

  11. lol yeah at first i did not really believe that the video was the offical video i thought some one just put the audio over another video for another song of JYJ till they started singing and i was like hmmmmmmm? confused 0.0 lol idk why it reminds me of mirotic just like minus Yunho and Max….. Just a little xp

  12. Someone must have removed the sentence from Wikipedia because I do not see it there. Still funny!
    someone was thinking like you but you were the first… lol

  13. I just curious, am I the only one who find Ballon's animal costumes offensive (to my eyes)?
    I'm not DBSK's hater or anything, I just still can't grasp what they're trying to make there.
    cute? nope. cool? no way? sexy? sexy big cat?

    JYJ you are the best band ever i love you so much and i hope to see one day .Iam asma from iraq west or east jyj is the best jejung i love

  15. As a 100% pure blood JYJ fan… I admit that I only watched that damn video once and never had the courage to watch it again… also managed to keep this news away from my flatmates. Yes, they still think that JYJ's latest English album has no music video…
    Guess this is the drawback of not being part of a big production company anymore – resources are so limited…

    As for the vote, definitely SHINee!!! (I HATE that apron!!!!! I'd rather him wearing his sheepish costume in Balloon)

    • oh my god me too I can’t even watch it twice!! I can’t even request that video on TV here in Mexico no no no 
      I really hope that our beloved JYJ can make a better music video in the future TT^TT

  16. Hi I'm from Peru I loved your video was very funny on JYJ ….

  17. JYJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:P

  18. i actually vote for JYJ. The question was not which one was the worst video, it was who make the better greek Gods. To me without question is JYJ. They are gorgeous, they make better Gods.

  19. Shinee but idk why my sister thinks xiah looks better in eyeliner she just wanted to add that fact in. Anyways gooo Shinee

  22. this was a hard decision since both are great groups.. but i vote for JYJ.

  23. i like both videos but my vote goes to JYJ..

  24. JYJ is the best! Love Them!!!

  25. My vote goes to……. JYJ!!!!!

  26. My vote goes definitely for SHINee's Ring Ding Dong, being objective it's the best kpop MV ever. However I don't think they were gods in that mv, more like angels and devils…

  27. JYJ – Ayy Girl was a "Mega Fail" the song, video, and Kanye…….its probably all his fault (not a vote)

  28. SHINee(샤이니)_RingDingDong(링딩동)_뮤직비디오 because they were secret ninja gods.
