They link to a pretty funny Mad TV spoof video called "Aren't Asians Great?", a parody of "Sweet Escape."
I guess it's all about context. If I saw them in Asia, or even in a Morning Glory store, I'd probably think they were cute. But knowing Gwen's behind it, kind of makes them annoying. Not enough to get me pissed; just annoyed. I know that's not an entirely fair judgment, and I don't want to Gwen-bash; I'm actually a fan of some of her music, particularly with No Doubt. Margaret Cho has a much more eloquent opinion piece on the Harajuku phenomenon on her blog.
