Review about the tall girl and small boy
26 January 2016 | by JoshSee all my reviews

This song has one scene I was always hooked ever scene I was a kid. The clip where the small boy shrinks to a speck and the tall girl grows right out of the ceiling that after she grew, only her legs and sandals are seen. Then for some reason she stomps on the boy. Even though I'm a guy, I was always fascinated by that clip and I still am. For a long time I always thought this: Okay, so we have a girl and a boy and they might be a big sister and little brother. The girl starts growing a little, until she is the size of the house. She's looking down at the boy smiling and the boy looks up at her and he is amazed at seeing her grow, and I guess he starts laughing because he felt funny at seeing the girl grow (if I saw one of my female friends grow, I'd probably feel funny inside, but it would be enjoyable). The boy then shrink, and then while still looking down and smiling at the boy, the girl grows right through the ceiling until only her legs and sandals are seen. The boy while still laughing shrinks again, and then the girl lifts her foot over the boy. The boy stops laughing and looks scared, and then the girl stomps on him. Why did she stomp him? I mean if the boy knew she was going to stomp him, he would have ran away, but instead he watched her grow and giggled with joy, so the girl and the boy would have had to know each other for a long time and they must have been great friends, or siblings because the girl was smiling at the boy, and the boy was amazed by seeing her grow. I guess the girl felt so alive while being a giantess I guess she stomped him for no reason. Still its a funny 10 second clip and heck sometimes I imagine myself watching some of my female friends grow giantess sized. If that really did happen to me and one of my female friends I would enjoy it, but I wouldn't want to get stomped on because that would kill me.
