In my head: "The animation/production on this is really smooth and mesmerizing, the chorus is undoubtedly very catchy, and understandably I can see why this dance & song exploded in popularity within the domain it appeals to. Also, quite a topic those lyrics go into, eh? God bless vtubers and their antics."

What actually gets said: "uuuoh cute and funny 😭💢"
