I have never seen so much kissing in a music video as there is in Tenny’s 159cm!
Yeah yeah, I know it’s late but surely no one thought I wouldn’t write about this awesome MV! But I am not going to lie to you too when I say I did not have a moment where I threw my hands up in the air with eyes rolling, ready to ditch it towards the end of the MV!
Yeah, they got me good there!
I am of course talking about that suicide fake-out! Seeing that gun wash up on shore, followed by the shot of ‘gay shoes’ lying there all wet and covered in sand…Yeah, I thought we were going to get another BAD END! But the joke was on me when the girls, looking all happy, came and swept up their shoes and ran off, to where, only God knows!
Though I would like to think that they went back to their homes and faced their monster parents and fought for their love! If I were our glasses girl, I would so like to see what my Dad had to say about my Mom having an affair with the Priest! Pretty sure hers is the worst of the two ‘crimes’!
As for the story and our girls, I am very curious as to what their connection is! Judging from their uniforms, they are going to different schools and yet they are almost inseparable meaning that the most logical conclusions would be them being childhood friends! Though if they were, glasses Girl’s mother would not be so toxic towards the other girl, right? If they grew up together, she would have been used to their closeness and in support of their friendship so question mark there!
From what I gathered, they hadn’t really gone that extra mile in the time before this MV and while she ended up making it seem playful, I am sure sailor Girl was really taken aback by that first kiss. Interesting too, in the beginning, it was glasses Girl that was the confident one, the one that made the moves onto Sailor Girl but after her parents caught them, it was then the sailor Girl that took the lead and was the confident one!
I mean glasses girl did show confidence when she faced down her father but the moments after showed that she was reflecting, probably even questioning if she was doing the right thing! A period most of us goes through and is usually either makes you or breaks you and ends a many true love stories!
Thankfully she had sailor Girl to be there and remind her of their love and from what it seems like, they have chosen their love over society and the norm! Now, I so would have loved to see the sequel but some times things are better left ambiguous! Sometimes that makes all the difference! Example being how I loved the ending of Sharp Objects in the series much more than I did for the Book!
Anyway, there are two versions of this MV, one normal and the other a Black and White with some B-roll footage. Jump over for caps and links…
