Watch People Listening to Kitty Pryde for the First Time

+

Kitty Pryde is a pointedly polarizing and irreverent rapper, the kind who’s capable of disarming the sting of a tepid review with a string of flippant Tweets. That’s what makes it so fun to watch the critical reaction in real time: As a variation on an oft-seen trope, FishyTunes.net dressed a guy up as a unicorn and had him stroll around town with an iPod blasting Ms. Pryde, offering the headphones to a string of strangers. The reactions that roll in might mirror your own — trepidation, followed by reluctant appreciation then outright enjoyment — or you might empathize with the guy who says, “Sounds like some brainwashing shit, bro.” At any rate: Kitty Pryde, not just an Internet phenomenon! Cue another listen of “Okay Cupid.” (h/t Vulture)
