This video for the song “ข้อความที่เซฟเอาไว้ในมือถือ” (“kau kwarm”) by 11-girl Thai pop group Preppy G really captures those moments when a dude texts you something cryptic and you’re like “WHAT DOES IT EVEN MEAN?” but you can’t figure out how to ask because texts are a truncated, amputated form of communication. I don’t know what they are actually singing because I unfortunately do not speak Thai, although there is a helpful phonetic scroll at the bottom of this video in case you don’t speak Thai, either, but you want to learn the song and sing along the right syllables.
We love our phones
The triumphant video conclusion seems to say “He texted… It’s Love,” to which I say: “Don’t Believe the Type!”
To all the girls of Preppy G – Praew, May, Beauty, Teen, Tan, Skye, Tina, Ploy, Lek, Great, & Pangou – stay working on your awesome harmonies.
Also: If you are going to be a Thai rap group, I’m pretty sure you couldn’t find a better name than “THAITANIUM.”
