Megan Thee Stallion’s “BOA” video pays tribute to One Piece, MK, and DDR

Dropped by Megan Thee Stallion, an avowed anime fan New video for the song “BOA” on Wednesday, as she delivered a love letter to her most witty influences of the late ’90s and early ’00s. This includes a lot of homages to Scott Pilgrim, One Piece, Dance Dance Revolution, and the 3D fighting games of the era.

“BOA” is distilled with serpentine flavor. Includes nods to the old Nokia Classic snake And in honor of the endless runner – or is that Crash Bandicoot? – Where Megan rides a giant white snake. But it’s the fighting game references to Mortal Kombat and Tekken that will make FGC even more endearing to Ms. Thee Stallion: she wears her clothes Just Like Christy Montero from Tekken and kind of a mix between Mileena from Mortal Kombat and Boa Hancock from One Piece violently killing children playing her video game like some kind of vengeful Jumanji spirit. (I also wonder if Megan’s video includes a more recent Mortal Kombat reference to Johnny Cage’s off-brand Roomba.)

Then there’s the revolution of the Gantz-inspired choreography, stages and costumes, the latter of which likely makes “BOA” something you shouldn’t watch in front of kids. asks one Instagram commenter“Sister, is your plane completely out???” (not.)

Megan Thee Stallion has been quite open about her love of manga, anime, and video games, thanks to her cosplay Mirko from My hero academy And Bruno Bucciarati from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. She’s also clearly a fan of PlayStation 2-era fighting games, We know nowAnd I’m looking forward to more of Meghan’s wit in any form.
