C'mon Everybody, Do The T.T Dance (With Ham!)

Posted on Tue, Sep 29, 2009 at 11:35 AM

So I just got back from two years in Korea, the land of soju, kimchi, and amusing attempts to incorporate English into just about everything.

Well, here's a new one. Female pop group HAM (which stands for Heart and Mind and is represented by a spin on the SPAM logo) recently released a music video that's sure to take over the K-airwaves, which songs often do there in a big way. When a group scores a hit, you'll hear the same song everywhere—in taxis, in buses, in department stores, and coming out of the mouths of the people, especially the kids. I imagine it'll be pretty hilarious to hear children singing a song that sounds like "titty dance, titty dance!"

P.S. The "T.T" emoticon is an Asian person crying.

Hat tip to Brian.
