Jon M. Chu - how the internet changed visibility for Asian Americans

"And if you could ever like yourself as the subject of a story it's like it almost takes a work of imagination to like you know. See that who you are can. Yes object store. I mean I basically grew up in. I think that's part of both my power and my weakness is like. I grew up in an environment in the Silicon Valley in the eighties and the nineties. And so I know that perspective because I grew up in the perspective of like Oh are Asians the other when you're surrounded by it. You are indoctrinated it and so you know what they're thinking and I grew up in a Chinese restaurant as well. So the fears of what people think of you are completely intertwined in your brain and in your heart. I think the Internet changed so much because when I watched youtube video and for instance and dance like I saw how fast the perspective of what Asians are as dancers in the dance world. When I started Asians were known as amazing hip hop dancers. But when I went to those tournaments and these these these conferences whereas they're six thousand Asia American dancers and their amazing hip hop dancers. And that's where they Kaba. Modern was job. Jabotinsky was there. Were all these amazing answers. And the world didn't know about it and in the span of like four or five years everybody knew about it and suddenly it's like. Oh Asians condense. When did you start going to these dance and I went? Let's see my cousin was going to San Diego State. And so she'd be like you have to come see this because you like dance and this is incredible and so. I want to say it was like two thousand six two thousand five. The collaboration or which dance competition was this They Will Aberration Star. Collaboration collaboration but there's also other ones but data for the first time. And that's when I did step up to I was like when I was creating sabotage like crews because I've seen these crews And Job Lock is like the. All Star like they weren't there was no ABC. At the time there was no nobody knew them they had never been filmed before so we got them very very early. But witnessing the shift of people seeing agents dancers and stink. Oh there can be the best. When you see these Korean dancers in those Uniqlo ads or in missy Elliott videos like it changed and I could see how fast that oh it just takes an example. I love that you have always seemed to love dance and music and sort of gravitated towards those areas in your work. Obviously I remember. I went to the set of your web series. You're super can't series the St shooting like a showdown seen in the town true we had. They're kicking us out in fifteen minutes so he just shoot like our whole last episode at fifteen minutes. It was insane. I was I was there. It was pretty great. And you really between that project and the step up movies and the Adam Chu dance crew. Which I'm GonNa make you explain to turn around and the Internet back then but you really seem to to be able to lean into these interests of yours but at the same time create company of talent like Harry Shum Junior. Got So many greats spotlights through your works with him and so many other dancers got on my rematch. Cast Nets smarr. All that stuff was crazy. It was crazy times. How did that like what? What kind of role did that project? First of all. How do you describe it now? Looking back I mean we were early and Youtube. There's two thousand seven two thousand eight. Maybe I don't know maybe two thousand eight nine somewhere around there and basically we had done step up to and Miley Cyrus had watched the movie and so she called our fourteen year old star of that movie atoms. Vanni who played Moose in the movie and left a message. He didn't answer he she him as I loved you in that movie congrats and didn't leave a number and so she's like fifteen or sixteen and he's fourteen. He calls me like. Oh my Gosh Miley Cyrus just called me. Can you get me her number? I'm like a I don't know how to get her now to call her age. He's like Yeah Asia. No I'm not going to do that but she was already had a youtube channel and we had already were thinking. Hey we should do some videos on youtube thing and so I was like she has her best friend. Mandy. Who's a dancer like? Let's challenge them to a dance battle and just challenger and maybe she'll answer because she knows who you are so we got our crew together and made this crazy video challenging her to a dance battle and two days later she answered and she had the biggest youtube channel at the time This is at the height of her sort of power. And when she answered us She got all her celebrity. Friends made it like music video and got included channing. Tatum and Jenna Dewan in their video. Which is kind of a slap in the face to us. We'll man dance battling real though we should. We should resolve more things. Thought those this was west side story digital like this real shit and people online like really got into it. People who hated Miley could be on our side and then people who love it could be on her side and we made another video. After and we pulled out our Rolodex we got like Sandler Lindsay Lohan. We got Chris Brown before the incidence of Diana. Ross Amanda bines before here incidents. We've got a lot of people. And then we got a huge amount of his we've got millions and millions of hits and at that time it was big and so then she answered again with like helicopters and Ryan secret and all these people about this whole thing which I remember it being just so huge but it's kind of an example of growing an Internet age community in a way very very like demonstrably has power. I mean you've also worked with Justin bieber twice and saw how how strong his phantom is. So it's kind of cool to see the Asian American community rally around Craze Rich Asians and that came out not that at all at all related to one another safe. You know all these I mean they are little bit though. That's that's what I wanted to ask about his Asian American dance crews and southern California's. Such a thing you know I went to Ucla. Watch them and it's so cool to kind of hear you talk about how. Yeah Yeah I mean I you know. And Jabber walkies like weren't they on like America's best dance crew or something like that but that was that was when like the world got to know them but before that they were in ACDC dance crew before they were actually as during while they were on there. They were in step up before they were ever On match you put you put the Jabber walkies on the map that you represented elsewhere. We film them for those for sure. I had already made my first studio movie and yet I still felt like when I would watch youtube. This is like energy and I reminded myself that. I didn't have to ask permission for anything like I could have a camera. I know how to edit and I ended all the. Are you to battle videos? I didn't have to answer to anybody. And that's an amazing confidence builder and powerful thing to know that you have at your fingertips and you can have millions of people watching it tomorrow. Not next week. When a marketing company goes not with the press release like just releasing it. There was a big lesson to me during that time knowing that I have no excuses not to make stuff at any moment that I wanna make

"Hey Cami Hey Monica. Guess what I got a really funny. DM from a listener last week. A D M A direct message in my inbox area. Yeah I thought maybe I could read it out and we could provide the answer on the pod as opposed to online fine. Okay hit me tangled thread four thousand five rights. Hey any chance you guys could do an episode on what should go into a girl's closet without the trends. I know it's possible ospel to Google it but a lot of us want to hear it from you dot dot dot or at least I do and here. She inserts a photo of her closet which to be totally honest. Looks a lot neater than mine but anyway she goes on on this. What is a big mess? I keep buying stuff and there's still nothing in it cheers angell. Let's so nice while tangled thread. Four thousand five. It's funny you should ask because this. This episode is actually going to be full of answers. I suspect not only are we going to be interviewing the founders of one of the world's leading secondhand fashion retailers that's yeah collective which By the way allows you to buy and sell second hand pieces designer secondhand pieces but also coming. I feel like we need to talk about this. Eternal problem of all of us feeling like there's nothing to wear in our wardrobes. Having a wardrobe full of clothes an attorney thinking oh I have nothing to wear exactly and we're kind of clearly missing. The mark of this is a problem problem. A societal problem because we're buying a lot of stuff but we're not buying the right stuff. I also think that a lot of us. I've heard a lot lately that instagram's our social media's to blame for this and it's because girls don't want to repeat outfits on the ground don't want to be seen wearing the same things tonight in a row etc etc.. But I oh. I think that this problem dates back to way way way more before that says that people have been overwhelmed by sort of trends flying at them for a really long time. And it's hard to pare back to the essentials. Well I think also women often want to wear something new to feel confident and and and that's great great but what about also training yourself to not need something new to feel confident on on the country learning to mix and match of things that you have in different ways so that you actually really playing around with your wardrobe so much better exactly. And I'm sort of training myself. That way and trying to really invest in Ki Ki. He says I have to say those are what I feel Augustine. Speaking of I wanted to give a shoutout to this amazing stuff. It's called the registry which is a website that allows you to repair things that you've previously love. Do they come pick up the broken pieces from your house. Yes so basically. It's a website you see. You can go on it. I think it's the restaurant or calm. I haven't checked and we'll put it in the show notes but basically you can send anything from a chanel handbag with a broken chain. A lovely pair of Bali pumps that all worn down. Or I don't know you. You have your favorite dress that needs fit into your body. Because it's it no longer fits and actually I think we so often think of replacing things buy new ones when we want something Robin repairing so anyway not everyone think of also repairing the things you love before you start investing even if it's investing in vintage pieces that I think it's good to get these these new kinds of services out there. Yeah I agree. Check it out. Also I went to the trouble to properly answer this listener. That was so honored. Also we're going to be fashioned agony. The neons yeah so I actually wrote down my essential pieces that I could not live with her in my wardrobe okay. I've really thought about this. Go on okay. So a perfect suit preferably in black Assamese had measles a great one. I would say velvets a lot of it. Suit Yup. Okay where where's your velvet. Suit is from Ray. His own brown raise amazing as well almost flat but but not quite flat elegant boots I think a day and by far are really good for this or if you have a bit more budget products are brilliant boots a pair of black gray white and dark blue ankle skimming jeans not too tight higher wasted. Because it's more flattering Goldstein. Denim are very good at this. Yeah I think with Denim. It's what works for you. I think each fasten their favorite stall. I'm I'm going for a very mom jeans. Look at the Mo- I go through phases but I think just find what fits you. Yeah Golden Helmet Lang as well a helmet line Unisex. Gre like ninety one pair of slingbacks in a neutral color probably blacked to dress at the black gene at night and make your ankles look great a crisp white shirt go one size up. You don't want it to be tight. Where'd you get your shirts from? There's a brand called with nothing underneath. I I really like a Bronco Ankle pieces of white which is really good but I like men shots. I like Ralph. Lauren Noah size small Mensur. Yeah sometimes even better than this is good for shots okay. Uniqlo's well wait t shirts from current Elliott great feel and tank tops internal next from a brand that. I've just discovered this dude looled. The Francis dilaudid in English. It's really fake. Check it out and have a great instagram account as well and a body suit to wear under the jacket. which because you can separate the jacket from the suit and just wear it with jeans right but then you WanNa wear in a casual way but open and you have to have something underneath presume bodysuits really good? I feel like this is tetris actress fashion. We should be providing the maximum amount of outfits. You can wear with these combos yet. So would you add anything. Maybe a piece of statement jewelry like from at Gerry. A or an Isa Kerr McGee. I would also add a pair of What I like to call cities meakers things that you were like for example of cool new balance or as X.? Trainers absolutely necessary sustainable option. Yeah I wear my new balance a lot I have to say I love. Also a big extra-large man coats your because I think you can wear whatever whatever you want underneath and just throw it on not be called and then you can have like skimpy little mini dress underneath if you're going out whatever and you'll find even if it's freezing and that's the last is key investment piece potentially the most expensive. Oh by the way also I really believe in like if you have old jewelry that maybe let your mom gave you or something but it feels old school. You can get converted birded into something really new and cool as well like Jesse Thomas Jewelry that her dad's a Master Goldsmith. She's learnt his art and she's learned how to do this and she has really cool. Modern tastes but with all of this stuff. You don't you don't need to buy things not to be preachy anyway. One more thing I wanted to tell you on this topic Chemi is. I met this girl the other day. on this visit London called Catherine quenches. I've heard of her. She's brilliant super committed minimalist. She's black for the past eight really. She hasn't won another Nkala rather than like a commitment. Quite extreme. Yeah not much light. But she's like totally committed and she's super chic anyway. She designs in other neutral colors. Black and everything goes super well together and she has created city break. Capsule wardrobes. So you can actually buy the whole thing together. You don't even have to think about it and everything goes perfectly. So there's just put a London won the Perez ones coming through in the Florence and it's actually all inspired by Joan. Didn't packing list love lies. We read it out the packing list. Yes yes let's do it. I love it me find. It's the sinked.

I think you're seeing the difference between supply and demand play out. But the fact of the matter is we have very good news. Right. Computer science is now the number one major in essentially all of the top universities. I call this. The Mark Zuckerberg. Effect. But the important point is you have all of these people in their late teens early twenties were choosing computer science in my friends in in university.

The long term result is usually more jobs than again history doesn't usually repeat itself yawn. Mitch key is from the McKinsey global institute he says that while the future, maybe complex.

Lies a paradox. The responsibility for employment and economies usually sits with governments but often it's the large multinational corporations that hold all the power if Amazon decided to automate ninety percent of its currently people powered functions tomorrow, there's probably very little our elected representatives could do about it. And if as likely be corporations, slowly transition certain sectors to full automation of several years help many governments would prioritize such future planning given that the ultimate impact would take effect beyond. They'd Herm in office. The good news is that in many of the discussions that I have with national governments as well. As at e levels. In Brussels, actually, there is a habit of recognition of both the need to digitize more and become more competitive in the in the digital world as well as for the need to reskilling. And quite a lot of proposals are being made to address that unfortunately, that doesn't necessarily mean we are moving fast enough. I actually think we are not. But at least the the debates are happening and progresses starting and actually some nations are even experimenting with with fairly radical things. Like, the universal basic income experiment and Finland the last few months have been take the heavy with political upheaval in the US, the UK and in Europe and the signs adjust that it will only get more chaotic in the months and years ahead. So if business is steering this employment revolution there enough steady hands at the wheel young Mickey. He is optimistic there certainly lead us and good examples to learn from pretty much all topics that are relevant. If you look, for instance, at the need for pushing digitization in a country in any enemy, then even within Europe country like as us is well known for for leading the charge on accepted each and when you look at re-skilling, there's actually a couple of companies that are stepping have to and one public example is for instance, SAP we'll have been deploying a largest scheme to assess what skills they will need in the future that compares to the present.

"Morning I think when you look at this or any of their work entrepreneurial, policy it's important to remember what work is and work as three things work is. Money it's product and its. Meaning and when you're put when you're implementing a policy like this is important to be serious about what are you trying to? Optimize you're trying to make more money or you're trying to make work more meaningful for your. Employees I think what you see with these experiments is not that a four day workweek necessarily makes workers more productive, overall but rather than it improves job, satisfaction it improves meaning for these workers because they're going to spend more time with their. Businesses don't make money they cease to. Exist. Absolutely I'm not saying it makes them less. Productive I'm saying they see there's no sort of silver bullet Happening this academic sort of sense like wouldn't it be. Better at but, how does it affect the bottom line. Yeah I think we saw here is, that it didn't affect the bottom line in New Zealand. Company, it didn't affect the, bottom? Line for Deloitte KPMG it doesn't seem to affect their. Bottom line either but not every company is a consulting company and audit company it's easier for these companies to, infant a four day workweek precisely because a lot of the, work that, you see here is a desk job right you might call you might. Figure out what exactly what you need to do and then you do the, work of the desk job not every word is like that and so you can't. Have a four day workweek. For every single job that exists I grew up in San Antonio Texas and the largest in one of the largest employers there? As USAA the banking institution but they decided long ago was that four days would be good. And do ten eleven hours a day and that that way people would spend less time commuting back and forth and, for banking some people would work Monday, through Thursday some people would work Tuesday through Saturday and then it makes it a job. That everybody wants yeah except this retail. Works. Right you have retailers who retail workers were. Four day weeks that doesn't mean that Uniqlo is only For days that? We, could means that they stagger the work have they done anything about the way in which people. Change their attitudes though if I know I'm working. Four days a week then I am a little, bit more productive I want to get it done I think. It's absolutely possible you know work productivity is a little bit, like ran in sleeping you don't your head doesn't hit the pillow and boom you're, in? Rent it takes time you sort of your thoughts start to meander and then, finally you interim it's the same with work you can't, sit down at the desk and. Immediately enter deep work productivity third downside yes there's downside if there are people who. Are already overworked for those five, days, and you say we'll take that five day productivity and just sort of make do, it in four days that's going to be even more stressful and then there's a lot of companies that just can't do this if you're an executive recruiting Comcast example and you. Constantly have to, take meetings with outside people and suddenly. You say oh I don't take meetings, on Mondays I don't take meetings on Fridays well that's. Really, frustrating to the very. People?

"Been a customer for a long time. Because what is the thing that is the most frustrating about for instance, shopping online or shopping in general, it's when you can't find the thing you want or it takes too long, and it's too complicated to check out. Yeah. And to actually buy the thing, right? And so you've got a remove those barriers and as. Analogy advances. You have to keep breaking down. Those barriers entry you need. You can't just have a CIO and have them handle the customer as data points, you need someone who's going to handle the personal aspect of it. It's a really great position. Right. And I liked it too. Because I'm like, oh, there have got to be people out there who are listening in our audience who maybe have a background in not a -sarily HR, but customer experience customer service through thinking about user experience and design their thinking about all these other aspects of fashion that aren't necessarily fashion design.

We're gonna talk about a huge break-up that happened this week. Roger Federer dropped Nike. Oh. Oh, right. On the cusp of Wimbledon. Who does that, sir? They have been together since nineteen ninety four. They have been sponsoring this guy. What have you had since nineteen ninety four my teeth? That's about it. Most of them. That's that's that's about it really the contract ended. It wasn't as much as a no more key situation as the contract ended. Instead, he decided to start going out with Uniqlo, my boo my bag, my Uniqlo, if you do not know Roger Federer is a tennis star extraordinaire, he has an arm span that I do not know how it's physically possible. He's arbs go still wide. How is this possible? He's also quite tall. Right. It's supposed to be in proportion. He has this really interesting thing I learned with his wrist that makes it easier for him to hit a tennis ball. It's very fascinating as it like Google gadget. Arm almost like he's able to extend it further than most humans damn creepy. It's also sexy because that. Little trick that you can do with his wrist. It's get him some money by Uniqlo if you were to guess if Lisa just put yourself in this position, you are a male tennis star. You have won twenty grand slams. You just signed with Uniqlo for ten years. How much is your contract? Forty four million dollars. Not even close. Are. You fucking kidding me? Three hundred million dollars three hundred Roger million dollars pocket is that in merch and money. I think they just going to build a room full of cash kind of like duck tales swim. They're just going to build a small nation for Roger Federer is money that is so many Puffer jacket. I don't understand how they're doing this, and they all roll up and fit into one carry on suitcase. That is insane. Okay here. I don't know if you have details on this. But here's something I thought about when I first heard the tweet length news about this. Okay. Roger Federer tennis player Nike is big on footwear. Right. I don't think Uniqlo makes footwear. Oh, lisa. You were. So smart that is the perfect point to bring up they make everything except footwear. So guess who's making his foot wear? Stay. Oh ninety. Yeah.

Anyway, get me a man who shops at the Uniqlo. Anyway, pullback girl. Tell me other another news story I like to call this story. Just when you think it could get worse. Many thanks to all for sending the story on. There was an article by Bloomberg this week called America's retail apocalypse is really just beginning. You know, all this stuff we've been going through. Honey, it's a preamble wait for what's about come down the line. Oh, great. This is fine. Here's what's happening right now. Consumer confidence is high unemployment is low and the US economy is growing and all of those elements would historically mean retail. We'd be doing very well. But what's happening right now is everything is taking everything is awful. And that is because of debt what does article states is that yet Amazon is a huge competition from places and yet millennial shopping is changing from products to experiences, but the big thing that's about to come to a head is that retailers are in so much debt. And that is coming up do and we're talking about billions of dollars. They are predicting that even healthy stores are right on the edge. And that has the potential to tank the US economy craft and the past retailers were able to avoid bankruptcy for a while because they just kept refunding thing. But the market has. Changed and in the past year. Investors are reconsidering loans to retailers Bloomberg. Specifically mentioned the amount of debt that is coming do and five years. So we've talked about it before we talked about it last week when we're discussing Clair's I thought they were two million dollars in debt because I read an article wrong and you're like, oh, no two billion. We've talked about it with J crew in the past. They are five billion dollars in debt and we've been talking for a while about twenty nineteen debts coming up twenty twenty one debts coming up. It is upon us my child it is right here. And that's exactly what this piece was saying that the headliners on this twenty nineteen twenty twenty one because everything's coming up. Do. This is this still I'm so proud with delete that part this perfect because you're right. We've been studying this for long enough that we kind of knew like we always when we're doing these stories. I was always like you'll never believe how much debt they are in the reality is it's not just one place, and it's not just one company that struggling it's that even the healthy places. Have these big loans? What was it? I said at one point if you need to feel better about your student loans or your own credit card debt, just look at any retail store..

"The average consumer is left behind either way is the average US consumer going to want to pay more for a pair of jeans really know because they've gotten so used to paying rock bottom prices ever since the recession as part of this one thing you have to know that's happened is a couple of weeks ago in the middle of February Trump met with a number of retail CEO's to talk about this. He invited very large companies including target and best buy to talk about the border adjustment tax proposal in that meeting. Trump told executives, quote, my administration remains very focused on the issues that will encourage economic growth. He went on to talk about plans to slash regulations and overhaul. The tax codes. So it's not clear if Trump really supports the border adjustment idea. We don't know if it's him personally versus the Republican party as a whole it was put forth by congressional Republicans and Trump called it, quote too complicated. It's estimated that the tax plan would generate more than one trillion dollars and revenue for the federal government. Now, the c o of the national retail federation said that if the border adjustment tax goes through it would be quote, a new national sales tax that federation is looking at this as another tax on people who are purchasing. Listen, it goes on because as a turns out this border adjustment tax is the linchpin of the entire tax plan because it's supposed to bring in so much money. It was supposed to make up for areas that we're going to lose money. It was supposed to offset other tax cuts being proposed. Some people aren't support of it. Some people want this tax. Including GE and Boeing they're supportive of the plan because it would Lovell the playing field for them and other American exporters and other important note to this Uniqlo had its life where event in New York last week. So it shows off clothes from its line. It's usually held in Tokyo. It was held in New York for the first time a March twenty sixth. They did this huge marketing effort, they brought him prostate show off these clothes and WW D said quote Uniqlo was mounting a full court press to show how important the US market is to the retailers future growth that happened. And then a few days later Uniqlo's president came out and said this it's a little confusing as to where things are right now. But I could see how retailers are very nervous about this tax plan and saying listen, if this happens, we're just gonna pull out it just we're not gonna play. Yeah. It seemed like the natural place for a Uniqlo to continue to expand would be the United States with.
