The helmets are back! Crayon Pop released a teaser video today for their upcoming festive track “Lonely Christmas”.
The five-girl group are bringing back all the signature features witnessed in their previous hit “Bar Bar Bar”, including their infamous helmet and cute dance moves.
For the new track, Gummi, ChoA, Soyul, Ellin and Way are dressed in sweet custom-made costumes that appear to be a inspired by Christmas trees and wrapped presents (with gingerbread-style boots!). The background of the video is a giant Christmas card.
The cheery disposition of the girls at first seems counter to the title of the single — which is released tomorrow, November 26 — there is a point where they sing “Don’t worry, be happy!”, which suggests the song intends to be an uplifting number for those experiencing a less-than-perfect holiday season.
Unfortunately it hasn’t all been joy for the group, who picked up a best new female act award at the 2013 MAMA ceremony in Hong Kong on November 22.
They recently came under fire in Japan, with accusations of plagiarism pointed towards similar aesthetic concepts previously done by Japanese girl group Momoiro Clover Z.
