The phenomenon of K-pop music video reached an all-time high thanks to a low-budget parody by a group of teenage girls from Thailand.

Their YouTube video mimicking the South Korean all-girl group Blackpink singing ""Ddu-du Ddu-du" has now amassed over 42 million views and 298,000 subscribers.

For the Blackpink, this brilliant video is the highest form of flattery.




Mommaem, Kungten, Som, and Kwang are between the ages of 7 and 12 and are from the town of Deksorkrao in Thailand.

The girls pay homage to the prop-heavy production of Blackpink's video by demonstrating their resourcefulness in using everyday household objects and outdoor equipment.



They've become quite the sensation on their own terms through their gimmick of masterfully recreating K-pop music videos. The girls prove that you don't need a massive production budget to make a memorable impression.

They're nailing the choreography, and their performances are on point.

Thanks to Kungten's older brother, Sitthichai Rakpinit, editing prowess, their parody virtually matches every angle and composition frame by frame.

Blackpink is a famous South Korean girl group consisting of members, Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa. The group formed in 2016 and were hailed as the New Artist of the Year at the 31st Golden Disc Awards and the 26th Seoul Music Awards, according to Wikipedia.

The original "Ddu-du Ddu-du" music video became the most viewed online video in 24 hours by a Korean performing group, and became the most watched music video of all time with over 36.2 million views within the first 24-hour period of its release, just shy of the record set by Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" video.



Here's the video with a side by side comparison of the parody and Blackpink's original music video.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
