Taiwanese pop interlude

I'll be honest. The tune's kind of catchy, but the video really embodies anything and everything wrong with Chinese pop today. Hapless people in animal costumes, pouty men with mullets, the notion that all of this is "cool." As my friend says, Chinese pop is the only thing that simultaneously makes you cringe and tap your foot at the same time.

what are the lyrics like?
are we talking Backstreet Boys here? and what is wrong with chinese sexuality that a music video of a love song(i assume) includes plushy dogs and badly stuffed Kermits?

it seems like japanese music videos minus the panache.
