Starring Yukiko Tomochika, Naomi Watanabe, Oniyakko Tsubaki, and Shizuyo Yamasaki, Sony Pictures Japan have released a great music video promoting the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot film with four female comedians in full gear performing a Japanese version of the original theme song by Ray Parker Jr. Nice work 🙂
Available from Rakuten, Sushi Backpacks pay tribute to three great classics of sushi – the Sake Nigiri (salmon), the Ebi Nigiri (shrimp), and the Tamagoyaki Nigiri (Japanese omelette). Clearly for those of you who want to shout out your love of sushi to the world and are not afraid of ridicule 😉 Lots of fun – Happy Friday! 🙂
With his Flesh Love Returns and Zatsuran series, artist Haruhiko Kawaguchi, aka Photographer Hal, continues to pack couples in vacuum sealed bags, transforming them into pre-packaged, manufactured products, questioning the place and the existence of true love in our society. Slightly WTF but very original creations 🙂
A fake, tongue-in-cheek ad directed by Mike Diva entitled Japanese Donald Trump Commercial, this WTF video imagines what a commercial announcing Donald Trump as new president of the world would look like in Japan. Kawaii!! 🙂
Yuichi Ikehata: An impressive body of work situated between illusion and reality, Fragment of Long Term Memory is a fascinating series by Japanese artist Yuichi Ikehata, who blends sculpture, photography, wire, ceramic, and paper to create surreal images representing incomplete and blurred memories of her own body.
Namie Amuro: ‘Golden Touch’ is a very clever and pretty amusing music video by J-pop sensation, Japanese singer Namie Amuro, which asks all viewers to interact with the clip by simply placing their finger in the centre of their desktop/tablet/mobile screen throughout its duration. The effect will astound you so watch NOW. We really LOVE this! 🙂
