Korean-American rapper and actor Jonathan Park aka Dumbfoundead releases a reality-bending music video for his latest single “Safe." The video confronts Asian stereotypes, speaking the uncomfortable truth Hollywood and pop culture need to hear.
The timing of Dumbfoundead’s video is flinty during Asian-American Heritage month and the explosion of the #whitewashedOUT tag on Twitter. Directed by Jay Ahn, Park re-imagines cult movie and television classics with himself as the lead and forces us to deal with it. “Safe,” the title of the cut, is anything but and attacks Asian stereotypes as fiercely as they are created.
