Also, it’s nice to hear that The Postal Service has opened a franchise in Japan.
Oh how I love me some Genki Sudo.
That was too much fun for a Friday afternoon at work. Thanks!
I’d say those guys had way too much time on their hands but,… wow! That was pretty amazing!
Clearly I’m not geeky enough. I didn’t “get” that at all.
I’m not sure I got that in the slightest either, but it was truly awesome. Definitely a must to watch it full-screen.
Genki Sudo = real-life Buckaroo Banzai
The Postal Service meets OK Go!
That is just seven shades of brilliant!
Genki Sudo: He’s like a modern samurai… that can do the Robot.
I don’t have the slightest idea of what that was about, but I love it anyway.
Alex, I believe the question is “What is Japanese for OK-Go?”
That was fun – and a perfect video music birthday card for a Mexican friend of mine working a long way away from home. Thanks!
This bit of amusement has amused me greatly.
The music is a bit boring but I liked the video.
Thanks, I enjoyed that!
Loved it – thanks. Though the Leon Trotsky grave kept distracting me.

I was tempted to post this into the “Bacon Posts” thread, but it’s not QUITE as overdone, so.
I love that fact that this guy was a MMA level fighter, and is now a 8 times published author, an actor and musician. I must have the albums all of them.
It’s the OK Go of Japanese sarariman music videos!
Parts of it reminded me of the algorithm march from Pythagoras Switch:
Well, I for one, don’t mind admitting that I have a fondness for Japanese pop music, as silly and upbeat as it typically sounds. It stems from my enjoyment of anime, I think. I thought the video was pretty fun as well, even if it didn’t have technicolor hair, giant robots piloted by prepubescents, human-animal hybrids, or ninjas.
