Cantopop Level of Hell

Extravagance Purple Blue Tone Hair Laurel Crown-one Head - Very Stylish!

A bizarre (even by cantopop) standards) hairstyle for Aaron Kwok. I swear this guy must never sleep - he’s in every major canto movie, does an album and concert tour for laughs, and pimps half the mens’ products available here. While this getup can’t quite match the bubblegum crown from his last concert series, it still qualifies in its own right; woven hair crown and gold lame suit anyone? I keep thinking something is lost in translation, but locals tell me there is really no rhyme or reason to it. Apparently the more bizarre the better. And it doesn’t have anything to do with the actual songs, album title, etc.

Morbidly curious despite this, I googled it and came across this great chinglish mash up. This is from an actual website - obviously whoever posted ran it through a translator:

De Showy Masquerade w/ Bubblegum Crown & Gold Foil Hair

Über star Aaron Kwok is at it again with a new concert/album/monstrosity. I can’t look at his ‘crown’ without being reminded me of a monstrous smear of freshly chewed bubblegum. Why anyone thought that pairing a pearlescent pink blob with gold foil-encrusted hair would look good is beyond me. It’s certainly ‘de showy’ I suppose. What’s scary is that by HK costume standards, this is rather understated...

Bring On the 24-Herbed Clockwork Oranges!

A truly bizarre album cover concept for the local cantopop band ’24 Herbs’. They are purveyors of the usual HK saccharin-sweet boy band crap, with song titles like Turn It Up, Bring It On, Fashionista, and my personal favorite Chillax featuring Taiwanese rapper Soft Lipa(?).

Now it seems someone had the brilliant idea of doing a full-on Clockwork Orange branding campaign for their latest album and concerts, complete with clubs. bowlers, eye makeup and steel-toed boots. Which leaves me to wonder: did they actually watch the movie? Do they have any idea why those guys dressed like that, and what they were up to? Do you really want your boy band linked to costumed fascist sociopaths? Suffice to say I hope they don’t take the marketing too far, and go on a stomping foray into their adoring audience, accompanied by a stirring rendition of Beethoven’s 9th...
