I know alphamonkey loves those “making of” music videos, so here’s the heartwarming tale of a man who aspires to do something meaningful with his life.
The clips are from a show called “Kasou Taishou” co-hosted by SMAP‘s Shingo Katori. Roughly translated “National Costume Competition,” it’s also produced gems such as the previously-posted “Matrix Ping Pong” and headless girl skits. Contestants vie for the approval of a panel of 10 celebrity judges, each holding two votes. Fifteen out of the possible twenty points total are necessary to pass and avoid eternal shame and dishonor. An archive of the best performances can be found on the show’s official website.
