fripodding and yummy: “california gurls” by katy perry

In the immortal words of a supervisor I was once had being an audio/visual tech on work-study job while in college: girls are yummy.

He meant it in the “eye candy” context at the time he said it, but you are free to speculate any other meanings and I’m sure he would agree with you. I can also probably agree with you that he’d probably like this video. The song? I’m not sure. He had interesting tastes. Well, he was an interesting guy. I mean that in a good way of course. When I used to make visits to campus, I make sure to stop by and say hello. He promised he’d stop by to read my blog. Let’s see if he holds up his end of the deal.

But we are taking a look at Katy Perry’s latest hit single, “California Gurls.” A song that I only heard for the first time earlier this week. I heard it was #1 on the Billboards, and then after hearing it, I understood why. It’s catchy, it’s pun, it’s colorful and it screams summer. Hence, they are calling it the summer song of 2010. I’m finding it difficult to dispute. To my surprise, while searching the YouTubes, I was saddened to find no video… but just a teaser of one.

Long story short, the real video debuted this Tuesday and I’m featuring it here today as my iSaac continues to play it in my car as I bounce around like a fool on a sugar rush.

Is it really so wrong to be on a sugar high after something like that? Does it matter if the video makes sense? Can’t a video just be sexy women playing Sexy Candy Land and be naked on a pink cloud? Can’t we all just have fun? (This is in response to negative comments I read about the video not making sense.) Lighten up and stop over analyzing everything people! Just enjoy the sweetness that it is. Eye candy indoob!

Now whether this video has a message or meaning or not, I don’t really care. I’m not a huge Perry fan, but I like this video. I like this song. I may not sing it aloud in public, but I probably won’t roll my windows up if it’s blasting out of my car. And besides this video being a live-action Candy Land, it has some pure imagination from Mr. Wonka.

Besides, Snoop Dogg is in it. Does he not up the awesome meter a few notches if he’s involved? And is it just me or does it look like this guy doesn’t age? I’m just sayin. Who else could rock a suit like that? Awesome sugar cube dice, by the way. But I love the “what the stank” look he gives when Katy dons her, um, cream guns (3:29)? And my buddy Sy and I know that look at the end of the video when you just gotta put your hands up. It’s pretty much like surrendering, or deciding to opt out of a situation that could get a lot worse if you continue. In this scene, Snoop was defeated either way, so… hands up and enjoy the yumminess. Too bad about the gummy bears…
