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.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
