We used to ask "Where is Ai WeiWei?" Now, we should ask "Why this, Ai WeiWei?"
Ai WeiWei, one of the most influential contemporary artists of our time, has made a Gangnam Style video. He dances like Psy and looks sort of like a fool in his pink shirt and sun glasses. This coming after the release of his Sundance spangled film Never Sorry.
I give up. Is Gangnam Style some enveloping amoeba that will consume all culture? Does this song know no bounds?
I say no more. I am tired of hearing it, and tired of writing about it.
Unfortunately it is not all up to me. Some people over here at Neatorama think that we have a duty to write about subjects our audience is interested in. Whatever. So we leave it up to you, Neatoramanauts, sink or swim? Ban it or keep it? My sanity may hang in the balance.
If I never saw another Tokyo Flash post again, I'd be just fine. But I'm not going to demand that they get taken down...others seem to enjoy them. No skin off my nose.
