PONPONPON de floor
September 16, 2011 9:12 PM   Subscribe

Did you watch Pon Pon Pon and find it a little too drab for your liking? Pon de Floor just not colorful enough for you? Well, you'll be happy to know they've been combined together. Warning: it's catchy, and slightly NSFW.

It's hard to say which subculture I find more confusing. Thanks!

Yeah, I gotta say I love all the remixes and re-inventions that have arisen from this song. It's definite memetic fodder.

And if tango is a vertical expression of a horizontal desire; pon de floor is the diametric opposite a horizontal expression of a vertical desire, or to put it less eloquently, people fucking that would rather be dancing.

Why on Earth would you want to dilute Pon Pon Pon?

Especially with this. While I am sure that no women were harming in the making of Pon De Floor -- all the anguished faces (Why? What is the artistic intent there?) and all the joyless dry-humping is just tiresome and horrible, for all the candy colored animated do-dads.

Skerrit Bwoy - is there anything he can't make creepy? My vote is "no."

I have no idea what that was, but I'm pretty sure it's going to give me nightmares.

My poor brain tried to relate this to Vulcans, somehow.

In this corner, in the eyeball shorts, weighing in at maybe 90 pounds soaking wet.. Coming to us all the way from Japan...Kyary Pamyu Pamyu with PON! PON! PON!


In this corner, Skerrit Bwoy from The Bronx, hypin for Major Lazer in PON DE FLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!

Ladies and gentleman, we expect a colorful match today! Eyes will sear! Minds will warp! Booties will shake!

AND THERE'S THE BELL!


Kyary poses silently while some crazy thing comes out of her ear ... it... it .. OH MY GOD, SHE HAS AN ACTUAL EAR WORM! This lady does not mess around! THERE SHE GOES!

There's Lazer's beat, but he's just can't compete! His dancers are trying, they're working, but you can see defeat on their faces already. OH those splits gotta hurt, too!

OH! Kyary's just toying with him now! She came out with floating brains and her faceless Boweryesque dancer - he's just taunting Lazer's crew! That's gotta hurt!

He can barely get a beat in edgewise! Lazer's busting out the psychedelic worm, but it's not gonna be enough! SHE'S GOT A SKULL! SHE'S GOT A T-REX! Lazer's crew is sweating hard, and you can tell Kyary's barely started!

Skerrit Boy's mugging his face off, but he's far outmatched here. This is a massacre!

Lazer's team going below the belt now! They're breaking out the nasty stuff! OH that's brutal! It's like they're turning on each other! Even Kyary can barely look! She's spinning in a psychedelic dreamworld!

OH IT'S A GIANT BONE! AND A BULLET DUCK!

Lazer's got all his colors out now, but he's done for! One of his men is praying for mercy as he humps his partner! KYARY SHOWS HIM NONE! EYES ARE ROLLING OUT OF HER MOUTH!

Skerrit Bwoy is working his most athletic moves.. he's using a booty for a pommel horse... You've got to admire his fighting spirit in the face of certain defeat. WAIT... he's feigning suicide! He knows he's a goner! That dancer is practically in tears!

KYARY HAS LIQUEFIED HER FACE! AND THERE'S A TURQUOISE ANTLER! AND A FUCKING SHARK!

Skerrit Bwoy still thinks this is a ladder match! You've heard of someone bringing a knife to a gunfight; today Major Lazer brought a picnic spork to a nuclear war! He's brought out the parrots but it's TOO LITTLE FAR TOO LATE!

She's just mocking him at this point! She summons a cat skull! She wears a mustache! Lazer's crew is PON DE FLOOR! And she's mopping that floor with them! He's laughing - you have to laugh in the face of such a CRUSHING DEFEAT!

AND THE WINNER IS PON! PON! PON!

Folks, that was hard to watch. Lazer was clearly outmatched today, his crew were game, but that was a slaughter.
