Utterly Bizarre Japanese Music Video Of The Day

J-Pop megastar Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's goal in life is to make rocking songs with quite strange music videos and hypnotize helpless pop fans with her choreographed dances and uber-gyaru fashion choices. This is the only reason I can think of for the existence of such PVs as PONPONPON, CANDY CANDY, Tsukema Tsukeru . . . and this one, FASHION MONSTER.

Fashion Monster is a mish-mash of Harujuku street fashion, gothic aesthetic, and a Tim Burton-like drug trip. Don't be distracted by the oddball video, though (although do notice all the amazing detail put into the video!). The song itself is solid as hell. I love the beat and Kyary's vocals are at their strongest. It's up there with PONPONPON as one of KPP's best tracks yet.

If anyone knows where to buy the FASHION MONSTER single for folks in the United States, let us know in the comments! It doesn't seem to have reached US Amazon or iTunes, sadface.
