An Interview with Urban Tea
- How did you come up with the idea?
When I made clubbin’ techniques 101, it wasn’t like I woke up one day, came up w/ the ideas and filmed it. It was actually kind evolved over the years. When my cousins and I go clubbin, we actually do these moves. And over the years of clubbin….we’re talking about 4-6 years, slowly we came up w/ the moves….But there was a day after getting tea, we drove around the parking lot and that’s when we actually started to sit there and come up w/ names for all these techniques. So for each technique, we just tried to come up w/ a witty and catchy name.
What should this be called?? The high riser? The elevator…no…low back pain yeah yeah!! Low back pain…. And this one…hmm…scoliosis….chronic low back pain…. Severe low back pain!!!! Yeah!!!
- What about the ground beef, how did u come up w/ that??
Well, we were clubbin in the North Beach area of San Francisco just going crazy and this one girl was dancing on stage and she wanted to be helped off. But from looking at her, she was drunk and loved to freak. So I pretended to help her off stage, picked her up, and then suddenly the idea of pretending to fall to the ground came up, and I did it- BOOM ground beef!! When we got to the ground, she knew what I was thinking and started grinding on top. There you go...the ground beef technique was born.
- Why the name ground beef? What does it mean??
The move is on the ground…..and girls are always complaining that guys just treat them like a piece of meat….like beef = so ground beef!!
- How does it feel to make this video?
It feels good, it’s been a lot of fun. I know that the video was gonna be off the hook yo, but I didn’t really know how it would manifest and turn out. There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t get an email, a myspace message or a phone call about something funny that happened….
- How often do you use these techniques?
All the time, there’s not a night of clubbin that I don’t back it up…it works like a charm, and from there- latlely I always do the fatality, low back pain, severe…. I always do these. The more you practice, the more of a killer instinct you develop, like Kobe Bryant, like Dwayne wade….in the 4th quarter. But the ground beef- that’s more of a rare delicacy and can be challenging to pull off in a club.
- Are your videos ever rejected by people and thought of as poor taste?
Oh yeah for sure. People either hate it or love it. Most people like it but there are some girls that are totally disgusted by it and think it’s stupid. And I knew that there would be some people like that too, and I took that into consideration when I made my video,…”What move would really disrespect girls on video? What would really disgust someone>” Haha.
There’s this girl in the LA area who’s saying
May T: you guys are stupid, it’s totally disrespectful to girls, you might as well be having sex.
- Did you really hire someone from Craigslist ?
Yeah I did, my girlfriends weren't’ down for it so I had to go w/ craiglist….I got emails from like 5 girls….strippers, I ended up going to a strip club at 11am to meet these strippers…..all that stuff. It’s all on the STORY link of the website.
- Why the Spiderman outfit?
I wore the outfit for Halloween and had a blast with it so I just stuck w/ it.
- Is there anything you want to say to the fans?
Yeah, have fun w/ it. These are real techniques and they really work. Keep backing it up, that is the KEY to success. And buy some fatality shirts cause they're cool too. Hell, pick up some pajamas, a mousepad and an iPhone 5 case. =)
