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.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
