    I'll be honest, I like Zimzalabim. It was the cult bop of the century. From the song to the fashion, it was an iconic era.

    Zimzalabim antis won't agree with me, but I know that they secretly love the era.

    "How so, Rini?"
    The thing about Zimzalabim is that you remember it. When I say "Zimzalabim," your mind wanders to the weird ritual-like choreo to Wendy's lump of green synthetic fur that she proudly brandished on her chest.

    Like a car crash, you don't want to look at it, but you just can't keep your eyes off it.

    So, in short, SM releasing Zimzalabim was a calculated approach to brainwash the public into worshiping the Zimzalabim gods, aka, a pro gamer move.​

    Agree, zimzalabim would be flop If people have forgotten it, but this will not happen.

    Just because people remember something, doesn't mean it's good. Just look at Batman&Robin.

    When I was singing "Zimzalabim zim zim" I thought I was summoning weird spiritual sh*t or some kinds of demons

    It was earwormy as hell where my brain immediately starts singing the chorus just seeing the word and Wendy looked like she had so much fun performing it. No complaints.

    (Also I love how this being their 14th consecutive top ten hit selling 185k+ albums is still not good enough for some people.)
