Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

I tried to pitch Caroline Charonplop Kyary Pamyu Pamyu to the estimable Blog of Funny Names in their comment section, but alas, they didn’t bite. I guess her name wasn’t funny enough . . . If only it were something like Regina Wrolingswold Wrigglebottom, or Dame Lucinda Sandcastle Scratch’nsniff.

Sigh. I guess I’ll just have to do it myself. But you guys are gonna be durn sorry you let this one get away!

That said, it’s going to take more than just one post to explore the phenomenon of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. And anyway, I have two obstacles to overcome. First, as a new WordPress blogger, I have to master that “uploading of images” thing. (For what is Kyary without photo stills?). Second, I have to grapple with the all-important-question, “Is Kyary Pamyu Pamyu a genius, or is she just an ordinary gal who just happened to be at the right place at the right time?” (Or, depending on your point of view, the wrong place at the wrong time.) This seems like a pretty straightforward question, but the answer is consequential. And it will determine the approach to the subject matter.

But enough. Let’s get started. Here is Kyary in a Suzuki Wagon CM:

Next in a Space Shower TV station ID:

Then, the Petit Pudding CM series:

The Breath Mint CM:

And the KFC “Krushers” drink CM:

Starting to get the idea? What kind of vibe are you picking up? How does Kyary Pamyu Pamyu speak to you? (And we haven’t even started on the music videos.)

    KFC Krushers CM is cute ^^

    I hope you will be able to read my review of the London stop at Kyary’s concert:

    I’ll get right on it! Honored to pull in a real Kyary fan. I’m too old to go to a Kyary concert and my musical tastes . . . fit my generation. But Kyary fascinates me for the visual imagination.

    That is pretty fantastic! Sorry we didn’t get to it in time… 😦 But it gave you a chance to share in the delight of funny names, so it’s all good 😉

      Thanks, Dave! You honor this humble blog with your comment.

      This is just a preliminary Kyary post, though. I haven’t tackled the name yet. Or the product names. Or the song names.
