Psy Music Videos : Not for Kids To Watch Please
I will probably get his video clip on Youtube some extra views by writing about it like this.
But anyway, here goes.
Psy has just released a new music video. And I must say, this time round (actually, the original Gangnam Style music video too!), it’s really is NOT suitable for kids to watch.
My personal opinion?
The overall portrayal of men and women (okay, especially the women!), the sexual connotation throughout the music video … err, the video clip is really not meant for young children.
Do I let my kids listen to Gangnam Style?
Well, the song is played ‘everywhere’ across the world, and here in Jakarta we heard in the radio, malls, even supermarkets when it was a real hit. And yes, I too agree that it IS a catchy song!
I do let the kids watch, but at home we only occasionally play the ‘Mom and Son’s version of Gangnam Style’ (the one on the Ellen Show).
And no, I never play the original music video and let the kids watch it.
PS: If our kids ever caught glimpses of the original Gangnam Style music video, it’s because we walked past TV shops and video walls in malls that played the music video.
How about the latest music video by Psy?
I have no idea why anyone would produce such a music video.
The message, the actions and the overall content is just … bad.
Totally NOT for children.
…… although we cannot control what’s happening outside, I hope we all can be more ‘sensitive’ in selecting what our children are exposed to at home
I can only say, … although we cannot control what’s happening outside, I hope we all can be more ‘sensitive’ in selecting what our children are exposed to at home, what they listen to and what they watch when they’re with us.
Because, through their eyes and ears, all sorts of values and imagery are absorbed.
And we all know, it’s harder to ‘erase’ bad values and imagery from the head, than teaching and instilling positive and constructive values.
