this video is great. i've never heard of this band but my friend sent me a link. it contains so many things i love: a simple idea that is mind-blowing without digital effects, electronic music, japan, and popping. the thing i love about popping is that it's such a weird style of dance, and every culture deals with it differently. in the US, popping and b-boying in general is almost always about being cool, but in japan popping kind of evolved in it's own way and japanese poppers tend to be more out-there. just like in this video, they aren't afraid of being weird or surreal (contrarily, most of the time that seems like the goal).
