I'm very excited about this weeks obsession!!! As anyone who lives with me knows, I've been super annoying, making sure everyone has seen it. I love Sunny Hill and every music video they've done I've just been floored with. This group and their MV director really have put a lot of effort and energy into making all their music videos successful and most importantly supportive of the messages in their songs.
The Grasshopper Song uses Aesop's tale of "The Grasshopper and Ant" to shake up people and get them to think about their lives. Life can't be all work or all play. You need to find a balance to ensure your life is a happy and full-filling one! Great job Sunny Hill! The video is awesome, the song is awesome, the costumes are awesome, and the dance is awesome!!! Ling-a-ling-a-ling (it's supposed to be ring-a-ring-a-ring)!
Here is the translation of what the narrator is saying in the beginning:
Grasshopper and ants are famous bugs we know.
We all know the tale of the "Grasshopper and Ant" very well.
Here is the Ant.
He receives many awards and thoroughly prepares supplies.
Ah, the sound of someone leaving.
There is the Grasshopper, that is the problem.
This seems to be the scene where the lonely Grasshopper leaves.
It's state looks bad.
Some ants are making a fuss.
The feeling is different from the story we know.
She's got to beg or die of starvation.
She will be dead, indeed?
Really, she has to beg today or die tomorrow.
Here is the Grasshopper, she has something to tell us.
