Nerd parody music group, The Chalkeaters, launched a brand new music video at present, “A Songus Amongus” celebrating the indie hit, Among Us. The group is the newest in a protracted line of voices declaring for all to listen to that issues are “sus,” that they see developer InnerSloth’s little area man in every single place, and different issues of that nature.

Whether you play it or not, Among Us has joined Fortnite and Five Nights at Freddy’s within the pantheon of Games for Nephews, Baby Cousins, and Little Brothers. I simply wish to be left alone with my immersive sims and CRPGs just like the bizarre previous man I’m, however every thing is “sus” now, and youngsters are discovering the game’s little area males in innocuous on a regular basis objects like somebody’s grandma seeing Jesus’ face in toast. I’m with what is not it and what’s it appears bizarre and scary.

Indeed, I discovered my sense of paranoia round this youth phenomenon (itself about paranoia) mirrored within the video for “A Songus Amongus.” In a world where every thing is “sus,” what can one put their religion in anymore? The Chalkeaters’ protagonist is haunted by “Amogus,” a lot as I’m, catching glimpses of the game’s implacable little area males in every single place from a rooster nuggie to the written type of Sinhalese, one of many official languages of Sri Lanka.

It’s a very cute music video, is what I’m saying, simply kinda good. It jogs my memory of the Harry Partridge Skyrim songs from manner again in 2011, actual cheeky and honest and a very good snigger. I undoubtedly appreciated the style switchups in “A Songus Amongus,” you’ve got received the pop-y throughline but additionally a extra funky dance part and a few metallic thrown in as effectively. If you are fascinated by extra from the Chalkeaters, like an ode to Animal Crossing and Doom crossing over, you’ll be able to try their YouTube channel and Patreon.
