I used to belong to a middle school-level fraternal order called the "Suckers", where our codenames were after DumDum Lollipop flavors. I was tagged as "Mystery." The Russian word for sucker (any form of hard candy you suck on) is "Sosachki."
Ha, ha. The difference between the lyrics and what happens during the actual music video reminds me of the ones that Tool did. None of their music videos ever had anything to do with what the actual song is about. They were both creepy, of course.
"Sosachki" follows the same kind of thinking: having no understanding of the lyrics, Ashley Voortman created a music video that is sugary sweet but has none of the imagery or thematic values of the song itself. The song is a silly love song, sort of a pun if you translate the lyrics (see another review, below).
Anyway, it inspired me to do one of two things: buy a piggy bank (they were so adorable here!) or purchase some hard candies. Since I already got a ceramic jar for the coins, I'll skip straight to the candy, thank you. Anyway, most of Ashley Voortman's material centers on serious subjects, so this, in addition to being an early experiment with a tablet, is a welcome change of pace. It contains no real plot, but has lip sync and a real clean, positive vibe straight out of children's programming. If anything, it demonstrates Ashley's potential for versatility and is, in fact, more or less an abstraction as far as music videos go.
