Is it for fun or for the fun of it?
A lot of people think that it’s for fun. A lot of people say the answer is “fun and light” and some people say that it’s for fun, then they say “but why have fun?” and a lot of people say fun and light, so what gives? So, that is a question that we have always had in our minds. We will see you tomorrow.
The first question I asked was about dance, and the first video that I showed was probably the first dance video that the audience can find on YouTube. So, who was really the pioneer for this dance, and who was ahead of the game when it came to performing it?
Nanaki: It’s a dance that is a lot of people’s introduction to our music, and it is very unique to our music. I’m very happy when the audience can have a taste of it because that is a dance that is new to our music, and it will be very exciting for many people. But I am really happy for the first generation!
I had another question about why you chose to do the video, and I wonder if you can give any kind of history for why you decided to do the video. And I wonder if you can share what you think will be the story behind the dance.
Nanaki: The story behind the dance, I think is really complicated! You see, at first I went to a restaurant and I told the waitress all sorts of things about the dancers. She said that they do like to wear sexy outfits that are like tight dresses and I told her, “Yes, but, but don’t you know that the dancers are beautiful? They don’t wear dresses because they’re dancing, it’s true. It’s because they’re beautiful.” So, I asked her to tell the person who has the most beautiful outfit to come out and dance with the dancers and that person didn’t choose the outfit. Well, she was right. So I did a lot of research about the dance that the dancer really loves, and I found a lot of good stories. In Japan, women dance in this way, like you see in this video. It’s called “Kimono,” and they do a lot of crazy things, like you see in these videos. It turns out that in those films, they’re doing a lot of the choreography in front of the cameras.
So, we thought I should show it to
