Justin Bieber ruins Steampunk

Justin Bieber’s new (not new, it was written in 1934) song Santa Claus is Coming to Town has an inexplicable steampunk video to go with it. Um…why?

According to the Washington Post, this all means that “fans of steampunk, the Victorian-era sci-fi cosplayers, may be fleeing en masse to another form of dress-up”.

There’s always the slim chance that the singing munchkin is just a huge fan of the industrial revolution, Jules Verne and upgrading his every day attire with the clockwork innards of a watch (assuming a helpful grown up explains how we told the time before digital watches were invented). More likely, he’s just tagging onto a niche clothing trend that hasn’t already been dragged through the media a la Taylor Momsen’s gothic-stripper styled wardrobe or Katy Perry’s cartoon pin-up costumes.
