He's kneeling in parts of the song for comedic emphasis, but he's definitely shorter, at 0:12 where they're walking past the camera there's no way he's moving that fast on his knees, and the height difference is much less pronounced, so that's probably their real height difference.

...unless maybe she's pulling him on a skateboard below the view of the camera?

Anyone who comments on his height its like, oh, cool. that person is an asshole. Lets wait for them to make it even more obvious.

3

u/Yellowbug2001 May 19 '22

Yeah the upside to anything like that is that it's a fast way to weed out assholes. I had a friend who used to be very overweight, and lost almost 150 pounds in high school. He said he was very happy he'd had the experience of being fat because he knew that the kids who were nice to him after the weight loss who had ignored or been jerks to him before it weren't good enough people to be worth his time.

u/YarnSp1nner May 19 '22

I have a sibling I'm no contact with for a variety of reasons, but when i first started dating my now-husband she was like, I could never date someone short, you should break up with him and find a better BF. We broke up for a short period, and while I was heartbroken, her response was to be like, thank god, it was embarrassing to have to be in photos with you because you were dating that short dude. After we get back together, date a few years, and get engaged, she was like, are you SURE? he's so short!

Yeah every time i was like WTF sorry im not as shallow as you? Sorry I found my soulmate who is shorter than me? Her constant harassment about my choice in life partner got so bad my parents even stepped in and were like, STOP.

But I get the best revenge because Im happy and love my husband. I've heard through relatives shes in a much better place and happy where she is and not as bitchy because shes not miserable all the time. I wish her the best. I just also dont miss being her insult punching bag.

6'5" here, definitely not all it's cracked up to be. Chairs are all the wrong shape, beds smaller than King are too short, can't fit in tons of vehicles, sinks too low, can't find shoes I like in size 14, shirts that are long enough are so wide you could camp under them etc. I feel like most of the (western) world is built for 5'9" to 5'10".

The whole "men have to be 6 feet tall" thing is just an internet meme. Don't lie about your height on your dating profile and you're good. If a woman is really not into you due to your height, that's the same level of you not being into her because she's got small tits or a big nose. It doesn't mean anything.

I have been told “Why would you want to be with someone like that?” I have to reply that often that is all there is. Real verified requirements from dating profiles prove that roughly 85% of women would never consider dating a man my height even though I am one standard deviation taller than the average US woman. I was talked into trying online dating a couple times and found out there is little point to it. One woman that claimed she didn't care about looks ended up backing out and said she would be embarrassed to be seen in public with me. Don't forget the average person, both men and women, are shallow and shitty people.

7

u/Falxhor May 19 '22

Yeah well you really shouldn't care because that 85% of people tend to be shallow and superficial so it's actually a great filter, filtering out those who aren't worth your time anyway. Nothing more unattractive to me than someone who doesn't find me attractive, idc about the reason, I want to waste as little time as possible on them so I'm very happy about the fact that they're left swiping me.

I always hated that people think being short also means being weak. In high school I was one of two guys that could climb to the top of the rope in the gym with hands only. In most other strength tests I was in the top 5% but would always be the last to be picked for teams except when the poor kid that survived polio was there. I wish we had a gymnastics team in high school, I was built for that, 28” waist and thick arms. In college I was the only one in my class that could “scissor” the pommel horse from one end to the other. I took flag football at university so I could also take squash and almost every play I could pass through the other teams defense and grab a flag. I pissed off the jocks so much that they started cheating, they just could not stand a “wimp” beating them. And even worse I was tested at two standard deviations above average in intelligence so that made me a glasses wearing geek/nurd too. People suck.

It’s absolutely mockery and it’s kinda shocking how many idiots don’t notice it.

I feel like trying to build short dude's self-respect by saying how you want to treat them like children is a bit counterintuitive.

u/BravoEchoEchoRomeo May 19 '22

Because building a short dude's self-respect clearly isn't the point of this song, it's being sarcastic. It's so bizarre seeing comments here like "As a short king, I needed to hear this!" when the song is making fun of them.

u/ShinjiteFlorana May 19 '22

Yeah I was kinda getting that vibe too. It wasn't too much I know they were going for bits of comedy but there were points it felt demeaning.

I’m a average guy but I’ve seen my height challenged friend absolutely savaged at the club by a woman. That shit hurt me I can only imagined what it did to him. I’m not asking people to change mean people will always be out there.

u/AKTvo23 May 19 '22

I’m 5’7 and too confident for my own good. The rage you can experience from some women for even talking to them when you are a short male is unreal. I’ll never forget getting called sub-human and that I should castrate myself by this one girl who was like two inches shorter than me lol. Ended up taking one of her friends home in the end though.

I can't be the only person who feels like her describing short men as "weak, no muscle tone, lookin like a lower case letter" and then holding him up like a child is patronizing and mocking right? Short kings know you're worth, I just said I look like your chaperone. Wtf is this.

The fact it's satire makes it that much worse for little bros. Her guy looks like he's actually tall but she's on a step ladder or something. They're obviously mocking little dudes :(

u/omertuvia May 19 '22

is it just me or does this seem to mock short guys? "i like em weak, no muscle tone"

"glad he got a tall girl to save the day"

this implies that being short = being weak, in need of rescuing.

i appreciate the effort (im 5'7 myself) but this is humiliating

u/Shaerms May 19 '22

Also I think the dude in the video is tall and was just on his knees for the vid.

u/CategoryKiwi May 19 '22

Yeah I feel like this could very well have been an attempt at something positive, but it comes off super patronizing. And I say that despite loving subs like /r/RoleReversal. This one just made me feel bad.

u/crasshumor May 19 '22

As a short guy, I find these "i like short men too" more annoying. Like, can we just not have any discussion about short and tall.

I don't need to hear "its ok if you can't reach the top cabinet babe"

This is very messed up and disrespectful and it shows the type of culture we are living right now, "we can make fun of this group but we cant make fun of this group because their feelings will be hurt" people need to make up their minds, we can't have our cake and it eat it too.

Im a fat women advocate. Looking like a capital letter in bold. No muscle tone, just fat. Im looking like her nurse, gotta wash those folds. Fat queens stand up, if you can! Know your worth! *gestures to skinny girlfriend in a fat suit* See, I love fat women!

I will wait for my 20k upvotes and praise. Or maybe that would be offensive? Hm.
