Red Velvet actually decided to release a music video for “#Cookie Jar” which I kind of expected, but with these Japanese releases you never know. I mean the Japanese album they are releasing doesn’t even come out for another week and a half. Maybe I’m just so adjusted to the way Kpop releases are handled. Anyway, this isn’t going to be a full review since I’ve already reviewed the song. It will just be a review snippet. If you want to check out my song review, I’ll post it right here:
The premise of this video is pretty interesting. It follows Red Velvet as they discover a “drug inducing” jar of cookies in the woods. They eat and then they are on a sugar rush the rest of the day, taking whatever they can to create more sweets. Towards the end of the video, they realize all the disgusting things that are in sweets (buttons, shoe laces, ants, etc.) and begin destroying and ruining all the desserts they made. The end of the video shows Irene realizing there are ants on the cookies in the woods, as she drops the jar.
This video filming style follows that of previous Red Velvet releases in that it is extremely colorful and bright (the exception videos being “Rebirth”, “Peek-a-Boo” and “Bad Boy”). There were a couple things that appeared in this video that are reminiscent of older Red Velvet videos such as Wendy throwing clothes around (“Rookie”), Jell-O on the table (“Peek-a-Boo”), and them sitting at a table/preparing a table (almost every RV music video).
What did you think of the music video for “#Cookie Jar”? I thought it was quirky enough to be a Red Velvet music video and listening to the song more and more, it is really in the style of Red Velvet. Like I had mentioned in my song review, it sounds like “Rookie” but it has developed its own sound for me, but it still has that tinge of “Rookie” in it. Let me know what you thought of the music video in the comments below. Thank you so much for your support. I’ll see you in the next one.
Like I've mentioned before, music has no language barriers, it knows no language. I want to dedicate this section of my website to reviewing in any way, shape or form other languages of music. This includes Jpop, Mandopop, OPM, Vpop, Latin music, Russian, German, American, Venezuelan, you name it. If you think it's worth giving a listen, I'll listen to it and give you a review.
