New Hey!Say!7 Lotte Fruitio CM

While I was feeling under the weather Hey! Say! 7 released another Lotte Fruitio commercial. Now I’m always super excited for a new Hey! Say! JUMP commercial, especially one starring my beloved Yuto. However, I’m a little bit sad Hey Say 7 gets far more pimping than best does. Even though I like 7’s music more, Best has more of my favorite members. I’d kill for a new Best themed commercial or song. But apparently that’s a pipe dream.

But I digress. This new commercial is pretty much identical to the last commercial in every way possible. They dance to Kagayaki Days again, they are wearing near identical outfits from the last CM, and the boys are in the exact same positions. The only main difference is this commercial is lemon/yellow themed rather than grape/purple. And yet I find this CM to be completely adorable. I love how they stop mid dance because, the lemon is either too sour or too bitter. Which was of course unexpected. And you have to laugh at Yuto’s over acted, nonrealistic reaction.

But probably my favorite part of the commercial was Ryosuke.

Him saying paradise was the hottest thing ever. How he says it in a breathy almost whisper. No wonder he has so many fangirls.

Ganbaretsugo copy off Perfume

So I was pretty excited to hear Hey! Say! 7’s new song Ganbaretsugo. Mostly because I prefer Hey! Say! 7 to Hey! Say! BEST, and any chance for them to get a new song I’m pretty much thrilled about. But instead of immediately being in love with the song I was a little bit disappointed by the fact that they basically plagiarized Perfume’s Electro world.

The underline beat is the exact same beat as Electro World except Johnny put some other up beat song on top of it so, it wouldn’t sound 100% the same. But it’s obvious enough to tell immediately that it’s Electro World.

For those of you not familiar with the song, here’s the Elctro World PV.

You have to wait until the chorus ends and the verse stars. So around 1:20 in you’ll hear the music that Ganbaretsugo copied. 1:30 is the exact part they copied. I know this isn’t really as big of a deal as Ryo plagiarizing ACIDMAN’s song. And most lucky no one else will pick up on this, but it still really irks me. I guess I’m also making a bigger deal about it then it is. XD

Anyway, besides the Perume similarities the song itself is a little mediocre in my opinion. The lyrics seem pretty lame. And by lyrics I mean the few English lyrics they threw in the song. I can tell why this song isn’t getting or isn’t on an official release. The music is pretty good though. But that’s because I’ve always loved Electro World. ;]
As expected the song is Ryosuke and Chinen lead. Just like every JUMP song is anymore. But equally expected Yuto was a minor singer in this song, so I can’t really complain. I was also blown away by the fact that Keito and Ryutaro actually got solo lines. That only happens once ever 6 months, or when Johnny feels they’ve been in the background too long.
