It's been a while since I did my last MV review (and Chuck is rightly yelling at me because I took so long to write this one), so I figured why not do it for Seobot?
Here's TaeTiSeo's comeback track, Holler.
I for one did NOT appreciate this MV very much at all. It's your standard dance-in-a-box + closeups MV from SM's usual playbook, but everything's so... fake and artificially put together, it's offsetting.
For one thing, SM was too fuckin' cheap to put together real sets, so a good chunk of this shit was straight CGI green-screen to cut corners. Don't believe me? Take a look at the title card in the Youtube preview and tell me how much of it is real. (*insert SNSD are fake plastic surgery monsters joke here*)
|Seohyun still has trouble winking after all of these years, god bless her robotic soul.|
I must admit, revisiting this review in the wake of Jessicagate really changes my perception of the girls. Just look at Taeyeon.
|I bet she "persuaded" SME's investors to kick Jessica with this technique!!|
|Or maybe she bullied Jessica out herself?!|
|They (meaning Razor) later gave autographed ones away... I tried and failed to win a pair, l0l|
The song itself is pretty boring, man. You'll quickly get tired of the chorus ("HOLLAAAAAA, HOLLAAAA, HOOOOOOLLA"), and anything else that tries to get your attention will quickly be HOLLAAAAAAAAAA'ed out of your brain. Short of listening to the song itself, the only thing that'll stick in your memory is HOLLA. LiteraHOLLAly nothing else.
Chuck's thoughts since I co-opted his original post:
If anyone outside of SNSD sang this song, no one would have ever paid it any attention. The stock beat in which you hear the same fucking note repeated throughout the whole song is bad. It's there during the chorus and during the verses. The only way you really know the chorus has arrived is listening to TaeTitSeo shout "Holler" a few times.
The refrain is just some vocal wanking, followed by an awful rap from Tiffany, followed by more vocal wanking. The producers made the song loud and overdosed on the vocal wanking to mask how downright boring the instrumental really is.I tend to agree with his points. HOLLA is a shit song, and it puzzles me why anyone would greenlight it as the title track, especially when ADRENALINE is on the same mini. Seriously, that song is so much better than HOLLA in every way.
It is a shame that the song is so bad because the girls are so hot. Now that Sexica is out of the group, Seobot is back to being my number 1 again.
Again, mute the MV and fap away or whatever. f(x) really needs to make a comeback to save SM from having a really shitty second half of the year musically. TaeTitSeo's "Holler" did nothing for me.
At least we get the image of TaeTiSeo laughing at some brokeass scrub and his shit car + small penis.
Song sucks, do yourself a favor and listen to Adrenaline instead.
- Seohyun is hot
- TaeTi is hot I guess
- song sucks
- dance sucks
- MV is cheap shit
- this isn't Adrenaline
I give this MV a 2 out of 5.
