SND48's new PV is bugging me

A couple of days ago the full PV for SDN48's 3rd single Min.Mi.Min. was released.

My interest in SDN48 has been dwindling greatly sinc etheir debut. GAGAGA was an amazing song, but then Ai Juseyo was just ok, and now Min.Min.Min is even lower than that. The PVs for SND48's singles have always been on the same medicore level. There's just nothing that stands out about this single. The PV does stand out but not for the right reasons. The PV stands out just for sheer weirdness. Which could be a food thing, but in SND48's case it's just not. Most of this PV focuses around SND48 in a giant cage wearing bug wings. Which isn't really explained and is pretty much a mystery to me. There are also close-ups thrown in where they are sitting on the cage. And a few scenes where they are tangled in branches. And that's pretty much the entire PV. No added exciting elements. No suprise endingwhere they all fly into a giant bug zapper. Instead the twist at the end they did add was pretty weird. They were being fished up by some giant who was standing on what looks like 50 different cage boxes. It made absolutely no sense to me.
I guess my real dislike for this PV stems from the fact that this PV is a complete rip off of Miley Cyrus's Can't Be Tamed music video. And since I've seen Min.Min.Min video before I'm obviously not going to be impressed with it.
What does being wrapped in branches have to do with being a bug?

Is it because it kind of looks like a rest?

Even the cages are similar.

Miley has a tree because she's a bird, why do they have one?

This girl is pretty. I just wish the quality wasn't so horrible. :/

This girl is pretty too.

This girl is too flashy.

Yeah, make sure you really emphasise the creepy bug wings.

Ok, maybe this is cool. XD

This girl is pretty adorable.

What's with the ominous floating?

WTF is that?
No, I'm still confused.

Not really impressed.


Um...what?

Lol it does a bit. But that's because my caps are bad quality. I'm pretty sure that's a hook on the end. XD

It's all because of a japanese tradition to catch cicadas (which are the bugs they are dressed up as, and they make the MIN MIN MIN sound the song is named after) and lock them in cages. So the girls are cicadas, and Serina is caught by a little girl at the end, presumably the girl is the one that has locked them all up.

Well, thanks for clearing that up. :] You know, everything makes a lot more sense now. Lol.
