HOW DOES THE NUMBER 7 MAKE YOU FEEL? 7th TWICE - T.T Avg: 8.73 10 - @Squashua @Aries @GeiPanda @McQueer @ryan_riot92 @Capitan @D is for Danger! @ajmkv 6 - @Vesperly My Score: 10 Look at that jump in average. Look at that no less than 6 points record. Sure it's the last song not to receive a golden 11-pointer but you'd think y'all were the general Korean populace looking at the general voting patterns. On this forum we throw this word around A LOT, both with truth in our fickle stan-heavy hearts and also in complete ironic lampoonery, but in the case of TT this is nothing less than: TT TT TT I.C.O.N.I.C TT TT TT Where in the world were you when a barely ever used slightly nonsensical emoticon became an international phenomenon? When it infiltrated the worldwide social media consciousness causing a global panic & subjecting numerous Americans to their own closed-mindedness via the spouting of Twitter nonsense like: Don't be like the self-proclaimed Bitchelle - don't give in to idiocy people. Some mere mortals had other theories on what the fabled transcendence of the TT meant: Well done everyone. You've cracked that the song is about Too Turnt tea-drinkers (and I didn't even put the 'Titties' theory down). Things escalated to such an extent that TT may have well have decided the fate of a whole entire nation with a single two-T finger gesture: When will your faves cause such civil unrest, moral panic and economic uncertainty? And to think this mammoth seismic plate shifting Bop-oween banger started out with a bunch of weird individual teasers of Tzuyu looking for binoculars, Dahyun brandishing a knife, Jihyo wasting the world's pink-hued resources and Momo conjuring up the poop-coloured smoothie in existence. Oh and whatever the hell was going on here: Artoptatophobia - Fear of Baked Goods (the kii of this looking vaguely like ARTPOP-ophobia) And it doesn't stop with the general American voting populace, Korea was more than impacted by JYP's motley crew. Asides from sparking off the biggest selling female EP of 2016, selling way over a million copies and winning music shows even when they weren't promoting, the Idol scene was properly shaken by such Impac'T: My favourite (reaches) moments being the infamous MAMA awards fancam showing Queen SinB pissing ha-self at TWICE's performance skills (or at least we can pretend that's the case), the one girl from Laboum essentially invading Twice's music show win to half-arse the choreo (I think she's the host but claim that relevance anyway gal), Somi starting off a TT convo only to drop it immediately switching to Ladies' Code before the section cuts out, Blackpink's disdain and Nayeon's spiritual male twin ace-ing the choreo better than the ladies themselves. Young or old, cool or nerdy, pirate guy of @junglefish's dreams or @GeiPanda's source of GIF-able reactions, there was no one in Korea who was not completely entranced by the Disney Halloween cosplay set inside Casper the Friendly Ghost's gaff: We were so TT that a nation turned to binge-eating, eating 99 ice cream cones with such borderline sexual abandon that they could only see everyone with giant thighs or shoulder muscles. When will steroids? When will global obesity in children? When will Golden Corral buffets? Heck, this isn't just in terms of MV visuals, Korea literally morphed the song into a binge-eating anthem: All the borderline flop live shows (the MAMAs still haunt me) are not even that relevant because TT is a certified 100% brain-infiltrating hit. The opening walk-out in the video? "Bay-bay-bay-BAY-Bay"? The Sabrina wardrobe change (that should have been utilised more often in the video)? Tzuyu's best look ever? The Jack-o-Lantern dance off? The absolutely fire production in the second verse? Actually the production everywhere. It's the Twice formula we'd seen in both Like Ooh-Aah and Cheerup down to the line order & distribution and song structure but ramped up to such a glossy rollercoaster thrill-ride that even the most staunch denouncers of all things Korean mega-popular can't even bring themselves to hate this. They did that unnies, they still do that everytime I hear this - it never gets old. I'M HONESTLY LIKE CHAI TEA, JUST LIKE TOO TURNT ********** Despite being in the top 10, despite not scoring a single bad vote, despite everything about this really you could kind of argue that TT got the most VICIOUS commentary out of everyone. I'm still like T.T times 1000 at how hardcore some of y'all went with the backhanders. Devils the lot of ya: I'd let McQueer call out the netizens but by the final sentence he's already been bought a ticket for the 'TWICECOASTER: Bashing 1' train: "K-Pop Meme Queens. Real talk though, y'all need to stop being such haters cause this is a great song. The production is so lush, especially during the Sana/Momo pre-chorus. Jihyo isn't yelling and there isn't a proper half-hearted rap bit so it's Twice's best single yet." I'M LIKE YELLING, JUST LIKE YELLING Robinho#1 went to Macy's Department store and only bought shadeee: "Ignoring the lyrics and their overall lack of skills in nearly every department, this single is catchy." which I thought was a deep cut until ThighHighs went IN: "Let’s get this out of the way up front: The hook on this song is trash. It’s frankly embarrassing to have to explain to people I show this song to what “I’m like TT” means. However, does the entire stretch from Sana on before the “I’m like TT” hook is amazing. Momo’s part in particular gets into my spirit. They are not a good group, but this song is quite something." I'M LIKE TRASHY, JUST LIKE TRASHY There's talk of a virus being spread and Deja-Boo believes only God can absolve us from it: "I really tried resisting this, but ugh. It's so infectious. Not enough to wash Cheer Up's sins, but it's a bop gerls." Oh did I say virus? I meant fungus, Salami told me: "Wasn't keen at first but this grew like a fungus." I'M LIKE SHROOMY, JUST LIKE SHROOMY And i'm not even going to write a little intro blurb for the next two because their love for the song cannot hide their disdain for other aspects of the shindig: Ryan_Riot - "The concept wasn’t my fave … and I wasn’t really impressed with this song when it first came out … but now I’m in love! I can’t stop listening to it! Like I’ve said before, I don’t care about your vocal talent (obviously because I don’t give two shites about Taeyeon … I feel like I’m really dragging her ass in a lot of these comments … oops), just give me bops and you will always have a fan in me girls! Keep doing you … but vocal lessons wouldn’t hurt …" Slice of Life - "This is sufficient. Nothing original about it but it's cute. The music video is reductive especially since Twice already did the Halloween concept with Like Ooh Ahh. But I'm not gonna pretend that I don't use this. Kii. I can probably sing this in full now using my gibberish Korean." YEOUWCHIES, JUST LIKE OUCHIES. Alright alright alright, [insert hes.already.dead gif here]. TIME FOR A QUICK CHANGE Instead of being like T.T to all these Clefairy-esque backhanders, Reboot has been caught in the untouchable haze of a thousand loops of the song & can only communicate in emoticons: "✿♥‿♥✿" Equally on the same level of T, we do have some purely nice things to say - ish. GeiPanda's comms sound like a threat to me (but he gave a 10 so i'll tell security to stand down): "My commentary... will be comprised of gifs I post after this song's placing in the rate." Capitan only made in to about 30 seconds of the song: "The first verse of TT is enough to give it 10 points." whereas you can always Ajmkv to commit if there's a banger involved: "I didn't like this as much until I heard the Areia remix which transformed this into the ultimate club banger it was meant to be. After that, I couldn't get enough of these girls and their TTs (OK that maybe went a little too far........................) " Did you read the other comms? You were quite tame cyst. Last but never least, D is for Danger! has an interesting proposition for you all (and a potential new fanclub name): "Y'all can suck on this Twice Trash d**k! This is getting a 10 from me and y'all will deal! Highlights include the massive chorus, the fucking drums, the Jeongyeon/Jihyo second verse, and that deep as fuck bass line. Black Eyed Pilsung really outdid himself. SNSD could never!" *Looks at Youtube comments* ANY TWICE TRASH D**K HERE?
