YOLO. You only live once.1

I am not exactly sure what's going on in this MV. We have people running around in predator helmets. We have Minh Hằng in a V. Stiviano visor. It's all sorts of craziness. One thing I know for sure though is that it's entertaining as heck. I wouldn't expect nothing less from the same people who produced the MV for Bang or Back.


I believe Minh Hằng is supposed to be an alien visiting Earth, spreading that YOLO life. That's the message that I got. First, we see a girl who is more interested in the arts (dancing and music) but is pushed into studying medicine. If you're Asian, you can probably relate. Asian parents have a tendency to pressure their children into pursuing careers in "safe" and "prestigious" fields like medicine, engineering, and law. Sometimes you just have to say YOLO and do what makes you happy.

Then, we see Minh Hằng making aggressive moves towards men. Traditionally, men are expected to make the first move. In this MV, however, we see the girl literally doing the chasing. YOLO! In the game of life, you can't win if you don't play. To quote the great American actor Shia LaBeouf, "Do it! Just do it! Don't let your dreams be dreams!"
