Mangchi is for the children, but this video sure as shit ain’t. There are things in this life that you can’t un-see, so proceed only if you’re ready to enter the violent vault that is our mangled Mangchi madness! Who’s this mysterious character that comes through the slum in a conundrum? Follow and find out as he’s awakened on a VHS vision quest which takes him through the cities and slums of a nameless country. Running wild on a reckless journey wielding a gun and a hammer, this shit has everything including a zombie boxer with gun-gloves! Does it make sense? Hell no! But it’s fun as fuck so follow along as we make The Raid and Oldboy look like romantic comedies in a music video which shows that the only thing that’s madder than Mad Max is a Mangchi. Use it.
From the warehouses and brothels of some mangled mountainside our hero Steve Lee scours the scorched earth searching for the one and only GookBoy: Peter Tong. You’ve seen him everywhere, wearing a mini-backpack, carrying way too many books, waving his long bangs that block his looks; with glasses that magnify his eyes and his eyes almost every time clogged with the membranes of mucus from tears shed earlier. You might call him a nerd; we call him the cure. This isn’t some sorry meditation, this is Mangchi- we’re goth, we're sensitive and most of us are close to 40 years old if we haven't already gotten there. Point being it's never too late to love yourself and we mean more than touching. Don't forget to fret and remember to remember that there is no one that can do anything for you. You have to work. And never stop.
