Seattle pop-punk band Quickie noticed a spike in views of their infamous “Bikini Barista” video earlier this week. “Over 12,000 new views in the past 3 days,” says lead singer Lou Trez. â€œThat raised a flag. So I did some digging and discovered that the Chinese media have been reporting on the Northwestâ€™s Bikini Barista phenomenonâ€¦ and including our song and video as part of the discussion.â€
Apparently the video, which includes actual Cowgirls Espresso baristas, is too racy for China Times broadcasters like Chung T’ien Television “as is.” The girlâ€™s various revealing costumes have been pixilated. Thatâ€™s just fine with the band. “We are getting such a kick out of it! Itâ€™s a fun, catchy song and it obviously has legsâ€¦ no pun intended. I mean, the numbers keep growing.”
