[MV Review] Boy Republic - Video Game

It's a song about video games, so it can't wrong. I mean, one of the greatest songs of all time is the Angry Video Game Nerd theme song.

Okay, this doesn't represent gamers at all. If anything, the Ass Crack Bandit portrays gamers better.

I thought the concept was pretty neat for a Kpop idol group, as it deviates from the "boy next door singing a gay ass RnB song" and "look at me rip my shirt" concept that boy bands use to death. However, it all becomes unrealistic the moment you see what the members of Boys Republic are wearing. Sure, gamers may be portrayed as fat neckbeards that leave their ass cracks hanging out, exuding the foul odors of not having showered for the past week, BUT THEY DON'T FUCKING DRESS LIKE LITTLE TWINKS. If you choose to do a concept, do it correctly.

At first, I thought the song was alright, but I think the instrumental should have been a little more dynamic during the chorus. However, the numerous shitty rap breaks is what ultimately makes this song a 'pass' for me. Having a short rap break is alright with me these days, but having so many featuring terrible rapping is simply a nightmare. Honestly, I'd rather listen to Happy Gilmore spit some rhymes.


  1. Actually, most gamers sit at their PCs and consoles in their boxers, or wear a T-shirt with boxers. Oh, and the Angry Video Game Nerd is awesome.

  2. This new Virtual Boy gameplay is amazing.

  3. Another great concept wasted again.

    Btw, one of my favorite Nerd moments is him trying to land the plane in "Top Gun."

    1. I find it hilarious that he's able to land the plane in Top Gun with the Power Glove, but can't do it with a regular controller.

  4. Did Girl's Day also do this "concept" back in the day?

  5. The blue haired guy's teeth :///

  6. I mistook them for One Republic until I started the MV.

    What kind of archaic stuff is this anyways, plugging a wire into levels, pffffft.
    Does explain why those bastards are so good at SC2/LoL, gawd damn mind control I tell you!

    Since we're vaguely on the topic of games, World of Tank players are brain dead retards.

  7. first 30 seconds of the song already scares people away, plus the very disappointing "video game" concept, and yes the background song is just so crap
