Join me as we explore the depths of dullness.
Exo returned this week with the most boring comeback I've seen in a long time.
Kai's shoes, the single most interesting part of "Overdose"
Ever since "Mama," I've been convinced that Exo is actually a sophisticated cult intent on luring young, unsuspecting girls with its mind tricks (Luhan, mostly). This song reminds me why I suspected that. The verses and even the chorus have a certain mesmerizing cadence. About the 2:35 mark, the music combines with red strobe lights and fancy hip action in such a way that I feel like I'm being hypnotized. I think it's telling me to buy something; I'm just not sure what.
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME??
The video's even worse. I get the feeling that the creative output for this comeback culminated in the "O" pose in the beginning.
Shots like this were few and far between.
And for a song called "Overdose," I was sorely disappointed by the lack of sleaze in this video. There was nary a needle, a person of questionable consciousness, nor a Fiona Apple-style skeeze party to be found. What a waste of a good theme. I know I shouldn't be shocked, as SM never pushes boundaries with that sort of thing. But dammit, don't give your snoozefest such a great name. Stick to something more appropriate, like "Yawn" or "Narcolepsy Attack."
BOTTOM LINE: There is nothing to "Overdose." I'm not even sure that was an actual music video I just watched.
