WTF? UFO Umbrella Hat

HA! We were waiting for the perfect chance to use this, and – voila – here it is! It started pouring rain the night before we flew out for LA (you’re reading this now as we’re in LA), so we put this on and gave it a test ride. Oh boy, did we ever have fun.

For starters, we met a lot of Nasties in the span of 5 minutes. Really…quite impressive. It’s not like that all the time. Really, not at all. However, there’s a universal law we found that dictates how many people we’re going to run into outside. It’s immutable. It’s woven into the fabric of the universe and is more consistent than the laws of thermodynamics. It’s this: the better Martina looks, the less people we’ll see, but if Martina goes out makeup free and looking bad, there’ll be a parade of people waiting. It’s a guarantee. Here’s a graph we found, made by a team of scientists and statisticians. Very accurate:

Scientific Line Graph

Side note: I’m not sure if you noticed this, but our walking shots with the camera were pretty freaking smooth, no? I know that for our adventure videos we do a lot of walking, and it makes some people nauseous. We heard your complaints, so we did something to fix it. We’ve got a small steadicam now. It’s just for the iPhone, which is why the footage isn’t as good as our regular footage, but it’s good for us for when we travel around. Things should be less vomit inducing now. So sorry it took us this long! I’m still getting the hang of using it as well, so it’s a bit hard to keep Martina in the center of the frame, but with practice I’ll get better at it. We literally just got it a couple of hours before filming this, just in time for our trip to LA.

Anyhow, if you want one of these lovely contraptions that Martina swears by, you can pick it up on Gmarket. It’s meant to be a product for children, but – who are we kidding here – you should buy it for the whole family! Ha!

  1. Hmm I was acting expecting Martina to get a bit wet despite the umbrella… hat… thing. (Because wind + rain = my shirt is drenched despite my umbrella, y’know?) Also thank you for using the steadicam! I don’t mind the slightly lower quality at all because I rather be able to watch one of your videos than get a little motion sickness from just watching a simple video. ^^

  2. What I noticed is that no legit Koreans were wearing one of those umbrella hats.

    And yes, I WAS watching the super cute Korean boy and not Martina in the funny hat(sorry,kinda…um, not really)…..he wasn’t the first one either. There was a cutie in a hat early on. :)

  4. Seoul looks so pretty at night. You guys should shoot some cinematic stuff like you did way back when you were playing around with cameras. I still the love that video of the old men playing board games. Also Martina, you can use that for halloween and go as a condom.

  11. My favourite WTF evar!! Freakin hilarious you guise, especially how most people are just like: “okay, shes a UFO….” Side ote: Martina, I have a dress that looks exactly like yours. Conclusion: yay.

  12. Ok, I feel like Nasties should totally have this as our group outfit, even if people think we’re crazy for dressing up like a bunch of condoms. This made me really laugh, but the idea behind it is smart. And guilty with the guy, I’m sorry but homeboy was FINE!

  13. Martina, can you please provide a link to where one could get a scrunchie like yours?

  14. LOL! This video totally made my day!
    My question to you Martina is: did this UFO Umbrella thing protect your glasses from the rain?

  15. Now reimagine the scene in Jurassic Park where the fat computer guy gets eaten by that frilled neck dinosaur but wearing the UFO umbrella XD

  16. HAHAHAHA OH GOD, SECOND HAND EMBARRASSMENT!

    You still make it work Martina, I don’t think anyone else could look as good as you do in it.
    I think there should be a definite sequel to UFO Unbrella Hat but this time with Simon wearing it and walking around the streets. Maybe posted in OpenTheHappy perhaps?~ (*≧艸≦) Happy almost 7th Anniversary btw!

  17. IM SO SORRY GUYS @ THE 4:85 MARK I TOTALLY DID GET DISTRACTED BY THE HOT KOREAN GUY WALKING BY, ^,^’ But question, wouldn’t a pancho be just as effective if not less embarrassing, lol?

  18. Okay that is damn hilarious. What I want to know is do people actually wear these out in the public? Do such people exist? If there does then I applaud them because I’d be too damn embarrassed to put that on. Though I do see the practicality of it since you have both hands free but it just looks so silly. :D

  19. Since SM entertainment watches your videos (obviously), just wait for the next Shinee MV to feature Taemin in a ufo Umbrella condom…. thingie.

  21. I’m pretty sure the umbrella hat can be worked into some kind of alien costume or a frilled lizard costume

  32. This sort of thing would not last in Florida rain. I get soaked even with a normal umbrella. I can’t imagine leaving my face uncovered like that :P

  33. Not gonna lie- spent most of the video looking at Martina’s boobs because they look damn good in that dress. :P

  34. Brave, Martina! I guess you have to be married to not be embarrassed wearing that around the cute Korean guys. lol But seriously, great video. I could not stop laughing at the 30 seconds of Martina’s “I’m awesome” face at the end.

  37. Khe-khem, a few things guyse…
    1) Martina’s hair – FABULOUS! Like go shoot a L’Oreal ad now. N-O-W! <3
    2) That rule, you know, yes. I agree. It's a law everywhere, totally agreeable. Look on the bright side – you were filming a video for thousands in that condition anyways ;)
    3) Guilty as charged, that guy… Yes… I was looking. AND I DO NOT REGRET A SINGLE SECOND! … More like a minute with all those rewinds I did for that particular moment…

    Aaaand lastly, quick question, was wondering if you'll be announcing the Boyfriend CD winners on next week's KMM? Since your crazy busy (oh the glory of fame) was just worried you guys might not have time for everything.

      • That is the most legit and amazing and worthy reason ever! 7 years of goofiness and love? Yes please! You guys are an inspiration :)
        Massive congratulations and the best yet to come for you guys. <3
