Because I love reinforcing stereotypes

The most amazing part of the following clip is the way it combines an old-timey stereotype Americans have about Europeans (they are all vampires) with a more modern one (they all love trance pop whose major-key triumphalism is hilariously inappropriate vis-a-vis the subject matter of the lyrics).

Actually the most amazing part is every single thing that happens during the video.

And just to spread the love around, here is every single bad thing anyone has ever thought about suburban American kids, all in one spot and turned up to 27:

Brokencyde is quite possibly the worst band in the world. I literally can't find a single thing about these guys that anyone could find appealing. Actually I can't find a single thing about them that doesn't make me want to send them to jail for the rest of their lives. Combining the most misogynist elements of hip-hop with the most misogynist elements of emo is just one of their crimes--there's no calculating the damage they've done to the very concept of music.

I just went to their MySpace and discovered that they have 46 pages of photos of scene girls in various states of undress with "Brokencyde" Sharpied on their bodies. That's like discovering a pile of dead kittens two stories high, except that kittens don't usually die from their own bad judgment.

(DJ Bobo via Fey Friends by way of Videogum. Brokencyde via Line Out.)
