What. A. Mess.
Aside from the flashmob idea being two years too late, this whole thing was very poorly shot.
Visually, the Wonder Girls kept losing me in this one. I mean, I get the whole cheap approach they were going for, as if a bunch of amateur videographers shot the whole thing as it was happening, but it just didn’t flow properly. The lighting was vastly different from one second to the next. That alone was annoying to watch.
Then, the girls were standing still here, scattered everywhere there, suddenly together errwhere – it was simply out of sequence too frequently for me to want to keep track of it all. I couldn’t even tell who was singing, since one would be lip syncing for a bit then out of nowhere they were all doing it. It didn’t work.
As for the song, I give it a big, fat thumbs down. It’s essentially a giant loop of a generic urban-pop beat they found in Beyonce’s trash bin. It had its decent moments, but it was heavily outweighed by strange melodies and, as a friend put it, “really, really odd” progressions.
