Since The Guild’s released their new music video, Do You Wanna Date My Avatar, I’ve had the song stuck in my head.
My sister and I had this amusing conversation about what, as feminists, we “should” think of this video. I mean “hotter than reality by far” is kinda depressing from a feminist perspective (will we ever live up to our computer-generated selves?).
But it’s a really catchy song. The video is fantastic, with all those costumes, and I never knew Amy Okuda could dance like that. And really, we both want to be saying “you go girl!” to everything Felicia Day does lately, as she’s been the driving force behind creating the entire series, and how many women get credit for that kind of production? Plus, hello, more geeky gamer girls in pop culture? Good for the rest of us less-famous women who love games.
So our conclusion? We don’t care what we should think about the video. We loved it.
What did you think?
