In the sketch that is circulating now, Yang is wearing a gigantic crown of ice and frosted lipstick. After some reluctance at the start – “I think my publicist was very clear. I am not here to talk about the sinking. – he finally agrees to talk about that fateful night of 1912.
Iceberg said he was minding his own business when he was attacked at his home by a “head-on Riverdance” incident.
“It was a very long time ago. I thought a lot to try to overtake him, ”said the Iceberg. “It’s a very small part of a part of me. But there is so much going on below the surface that you cannot see.
The appearance, the Iceberg insisted, was not to speak of the shipwreck. Instead, it was designed to promote his new album, Music, a name apparently borrowed from another disaster. The record “hyperpop EDM new disco fantasia” was pumped by a short live performance of one of his singles.
The iceberg claimed that if he was sorry for the “40 or 50 people who died, or whatever how many”. However, “I was watching this and I was like, ‘Oh my god, they’re going to make a movie about this!’” He said.
He concluded with a suggestion on who was the real villain of the tragedy: the North Atlantic. “Nobody talks about water!” he said. “What did the autopsy say?” Are they disappointed with icebergs? No, they drowned, bitch!
