Despite the title, I have no intention of making fun of these Sailor Moon-loving ladies for their ethnicity; it was just the punniest title I could think of on short notice. What I will make fun of them for is:
? The horribly low production values, even for a fan-made video filmed in someone’s living room ? The total lack of accuracy on every single part of every single Sailor Scout costume (seriously, no one had anything?!) ? The utter lack of enthusiasm by virtually everyone involved in this video, as if they had to film it less someone kill a loved one off-camera ? The fact that despite having no materials and no apparent desire to make the video, they did it anyways ? And then they uploaded it to YouTube for everyone to see
What’s more, is that if you check the related YouTube videos, there are dozens more of these videos of these girls as impossibly lackluster, depressed Sailor Scouts. Why? Why make this video if you don’t want to? Why make the video if you don’t have anything other than a fairy wand and a blond wig? And why, of God’s green earth, if you did make it, would you upload it to YouTube? I want to go cry in a corner somewhere, but I feel like watching this video is kind of the same thing. Thanks (I guess?) to Tyler S, for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
