Stray Kids just dropped a dazzling, cinematic trailer titled “ODDINARY” for their March comeback. Fans are excitedly anticipating the new era and are already theorizing what it all could mean.
The trailer follows Felix who comes into contact with the other Stray Kids members. Missing posters for some of the other members can be seen in the video. Fans are wondering what the significance is.
either felix went looking for skz and found their alter-egos, or… this IS skz. they didn't go missing, they became "oddinary" and went into hiding? that's why when felix finds them, hyunjin asks felix "do you want to be Oddinary", like do you want to join the evil side too…. pic.twitter.com/uOAOXU1PAN

Many fans have theorized some variation of Felix being ordinary while the others are “oddinary.”
my theory is that felix is the only ordinary ones and he is looking for the others. all of em went missing and became oddinary. that's why when felix found them they're different and that's why hyunjin asked do you want to be oddinary just like the others

Some fans note that everyone except for Felix seems evil in some way. They think this could be a reference to Felix’s line in “Christmas EveL.”
WAIT- "I can feel the evil coming but felix never bad"???? https://t.co/gQGYAvzw2Y

Fans have also pointed out the wordplay made by using the title “ODDINARY” instead of ordinary. This is not the first Stray Kids song to do this.
hellevator (hell + elevator), noeasy (noisy), christmas eveL (evil), oddinary (ordinary)…… theres rlly something about skz's word play

Some are wondering if the red and blue lighting used in the scenes has any significance. It could represent, according to fans, two separate worlds.
yknow how in the oddinary trailer everyone else is either red (skz) or blue (felix) but in changbin's scene he has both. and remember how he always has different colored eyes both in scars and gods menu? what if its bc he's in between both worlds?? pic.twitter.com/o7GwpxnvnK

Felix’s persona seems to change throughout the trailer. While he seems confident at the beginning, at the end he seems shaken up by what he encounters.
