You're breakfast. From Parra of Rockwell. NSFW, unless your work consists of gorgeous hand-drawn typography and voluptuous bird women cavorting together.

I remember seeing this a couple of years ago, but I can't remember where.

What a delightful song. I cannot imagine any woman not being flattered by being referred to as a bitch and being described as various types of breakfast foodstuffs to the tune of a monotonous 8-bit-ish beat.

Truly, romance is not dead.

This...is kinda fucked up.

Actually, just this morning I said to the wife, "bitch, you're breakfast". Well, actually, I said "honey, you're breakfast". In fact, no, what I really said was "honey, where's breakfast?" Well, OK, honestly, the exact thing that I truly said was, "honey, here's breakfast".

I always make the breakfast in our household.

I didn't think any musician could ever put to music the innermost feelings of my heart. Clearly I was mistaken.

I think this music video would have confused me an awful lot when I was a kid.

"Bitch, you're breakfast"? Really? Ugh.

You would definitely want to have explained reproduction to a kid before they saw it, or they'd end up with some sort of weird porridge kink. Imagine the letters to Dan Savage!

Not my current job, no.

It would appear that somebody did not see that episode of The Cosby Show where Theo and Cockroach are overheard casually referring to women as "burgers" and totally getting called out on it.

If it's hand-drawn, it isn't typography. By definition.

having just ready that booty house thread a couple of days ago, I see this and think, "Hmm, booty house's gone all easy-listening-minimal."

Yikes, you guys. My female friends thought this was hysterical. One of them even turned out to be a big fan of his shirt designs, which is where I got the Rockwell link. I thought this video was pretty clearly tongue-in-cheek.

I'm sorry to have offended, I feel like the uninvited drunk guy who's raunchy joke just fell flat at the dinner party.

You Are Breakfast

The soul cannot itself sustain
On bread and water alone.
Forlorn and famished, a hunger pang
Rends my respite, tires my bones.
The coldness of my hearthstone,
Cruel granite that receives my head.
The empty chamber, the hollow home,
This mockery that is my bed.
Yet, when I dream my veins bled
Dry and carrion birds flock and jeer,
Still I hope against hope to be wed,
Full heart to heart and tear to tear.
Worn down by love-starved night, fearing my fate cast,
In waning strength I pled to you: you answered and broke my fast.

Thank god - a song that will finally drive Die Antwoord out of my head.

Is it time for DO NOT WANT to make a comeback? No other phrase leaps to mind.

I know Parra is frequently compared to French artist So-Me, each of them accused of ripping off the other. But man, So-Me makes a much better music video.

I love this. I said it.

I am also female, if that matters. I don't really think it does, though.

I was not shocked by this video. But, I worked as a janitor in a hospital morgue when I was 17. I was offended though.

Metafilter needs a 2-column format: one column for "Yay THIS!", and another for "EFF this!" (Yay THIS!)

Also, alasdair, the lyrics aren't
"Bitch, you're breakfast."
It's
"Bitch, you breakfast".

You remind me of the Peoria Opera production of Porgie & Bess (circa 2000). "Bess, you is my woman now" was subtitled. I'm not kidding.
