Here it is, the first Arashi PV of 2010. Right? I dunno. I've been quite absent. My PC wasn't exactly cooperating. So I threw it out and got a new one. Savvy? I know I've mentioned it before, but I am so psyched you see.
I shall spell ribbons as ribon from now on.
You can tell the video is not low budget, but it is hilariously low quality. And it has RIBON. Paprika and RIBON. I love Engrish.
Okay, the song is not something I'd be addicted to. The chorus is slightly catchy in an annoying Steve Urkel kinda way. The verses make me want to cry from boredom. It's a subpar song with a subpar video. It is like a really bad slideshow with music.
The above, was my opinion before I watched the full video. Repeatedly. So as to screencap the thingie for this entry. Then I begin to see it. That scam that pulls you in over and over again. The crack moments. I didn't see them before because I watched the short version and started typing this before the long version came into my handsies.
Then there's the chorus. I swear if it is played enough times, it gets... better. My favourite part of the entire song is the bridge. The bridge is good and then it makes the chorus that follows it even better that it was.
Shit. I wonder when can I get over this boyband phase-type-thing. I mean, I am not getting any younger okay. Sigh. But I am still reasonably young. Whee. It took me a while to realize that they were sitting on a 'bus' and the big dark round things are actually... clouds.
Lookie! Colours! I love colours. They manage to get the Arashi colours for most of the stuff too. Aww... sweet. Okay, like I think I ran out of things to say.
Okay, the stylist this time has something against Aiba. The clothes... what do you call that colour? Indigo? I don't know, that is one hideous colour. And he's been looking so pretty these days they have to ugly him up. I am placing my money on Jun bribing the stylist because he wants to be the pretty one. What a prima donna.
The fishing scene, Ohno slipped the director some money to insert it.
Sho is such a camwhore in here. His clothes were bad too. Bad. Did anyone spot Ohno's dark circles? You gotta be blind to not. Make up people are not good at what they do.
Jun, always wanting to look pretty eh. What a girl.
I like the goofing around. I guess. Good thing the video doesn't look too cheap. There's an Arashi vibe to the video. The brightness, the happiness, the vibe is very Arashi when they're not doing the cool thing. I thought the single would be a double A-side, but it turns out, Yurase Ima wo is actually the B-side. Hmm... It is a good B-side.
Jun is taking happy pills. Lately. He's so happy, it is scary. Bring Do-S back so I can hate him. Pretty please?
