Day Above Ground: WTF?

On August 2, I had the misfortune of seeing a horrifying video on Youtube. It was by this crappy small-name rock band named Day Above Ground. The video was titled "Asian Girlz" - and guess what it's about.
"Asian Girlz" features the band playing in a birdcage while a heavily tattooed Asian woman (model Levy Tran) looks on and dances like a slut around them. It also shows her moaning while she is in the bathtub. There's a scene where the guys jump in the tub in their underwear and swim around the naked woman. The guys reference all these Asian stereotypes through the lyrics.
This song is so offensive. Seriously, Day Above Ground is doing awful stereotyping. They have references to slanted eyes, yellow skin, and sex. It also references tofu, spring rolls, and nail salons. It even implies that Asian folk beliefs like feng shui are superstitious and "bullshit".
The worst lyric is: "Come on sit on my lap (right here baby) Or we’ll send you back." So what they're saying is that Asian women must submit to white men or else they have to go back to their home country? That is very insulting. Asian women should be treated as people, not sex objects. I don't care that these guys want a girl who they think will "love you long time" (like in that stupid movie) - they are being offensive.
What's worse is that Day Above Ground is still defending their shitty-ass video even after they took it down. There's no defending "Asian Girlz". It's racist and insulting. These guys were thinking that they were being funny. I think they were being pricks. Even Tran is defending this shit. She doesn't realise what she just did. She degraded herself for these stupid white guys.
Have any of you seen "Asian Girlz"? Did you think it was offensive?
