Can’t think of much to say except I dig the incongruity and admire the chutzpah. (My enthusiasm was mitigated somewhat by the current “blackface” controversy.) Some of the members of this Japanese “idol” girl group are apparently in a new movie, The Curtain Rises.
Wait a minute. You mean “Cho Cha” isn’t just a cute story about a boy’s love for his cat? Next you’ll be telling me “Pink Cadillac” ain’t about driving around, neither. Anyway, this is not just a video for a terrific pop song, but also a surprisingly effective, self-contained little horror movie. It’s directed by Ryan Gosling’s buddy Zach Shields (together, they’re a band called Dead Man’s Bones) and, unsettlingly, stars noted Tiffany superfan Jeff Turner, who was a target of a restraining order on behalf of the 1980s pop star when she was 16 years old. Heh.
