SDN48-Min.Min.Min PV preview

The PV preview for SDN48's 3rd single, Min.Min.Min, is out. And of course it has to be a minute and a half to spoil the surprise of the PV.

My reaction to the PV preview can be summed up in 5 words, "what did I just watch?" The main focus of this PV seems to be the dance scenes, like it is in most idol PVs. Hoever, the dance shot for this PV is hardly ordinary idol fare. The members of SDN48 are dancing inside of a giant cage. If that wasn't odd enough, they are also doing so while sporting some shiny silver beetle/insect wings. Which doesn't even begin to make sense. When SDN48 was wearing wings in the Min Min Daho energy drink  commercial I though it was a little odd. But never in a million years did I expect them to wear them in the actual PV. It's just completely bizzare. And definitely WTF of Lol worthy. However, that initial reaction only lasted for a minute or two. After that I had the strange feeling that I has seen this all before. And then it dawned on me. That aspect of the PV is a complete rip off of Miley Cyrus's Can't Be Tamed video. But instead of a bird creature, they are bugs. (I'll go more into the similarites most likely in my PV review.) And after I realized that SDN48 was copying that off of Miley, their whole bizzare, what am I looking at, quirky schtick was pretty much lost.
The rest of the PV preview just shows the girl's close-ups, where they are sitting on the cage. And actually I wouldn't mind if the whole PV was one giant close-up. The girls look super gorgeous in those black outfits. With their sexy, flowing hairstyles, and their smokey eyes, they just look to pretty for words. Seriouly phenomenal. This is probably the prettiest they've ever looked in a PV.
