I have the TV on in the background because I love to pretend that I can multi-task. I was flipping through the channels to get to CNN (which somehow I find comforting to have on in the background) and came across a group of skinny, bald white guys with neat little boy-band chin-strap beards, large sunglasses, rapping their hearts out with wild arm gestures in German on MTV.
First, I guess it’s heartwarming to see that the Germans have enough of a domestic music scene to have their own MTV (and not have to play only American stuff) and to be able to fill it with more than just Danzig and David Hasselhoff (long live the Hoff).
Second, there is nothing weirder than watching skinny white guys rap in German.
Unless it’s watching skinny white guys rap in Dutch. Which I have seen. With my own eyes. Swear it.
Which strangely, fills me with nostalgia.
