The full PV for Watarirouka Hashiritai7’s new single, Hetappi Wink, has finally been released.
Even though the PV preview for this song was pretty short, the PV preview turned out to show pretty much the entire PV. The PV is basically following the girls, mostly Mayu of course, while they film a commercial for masscara or something like that. And of course since this PV is a behind the scenes PV we get to see the girls in such exciting places as sitting at a table off set and in the makeup room. The PV follows Mayu closely as she struggles with the daunting task of winking. So this PV is filled with Mayu’s pouting face, sulking face, dissapointed face, and apathetic face. Which are probably my favorite scenes in the PV. Because she absolutely adorable at those times. The PV also consists of the other girls acing their commericals and winking about a dozen times. Which I think is hilarious, because it’s basically saying “in your face” to Mayu. The director is no doubt a sadist.
Besides all the snazzy behind the scenes shots the rest of the PV is a pretty standard close-up and dance shot idol PV. Which is fine. The behind the scenes parts are enough of a storyline to keep me interested in the PV.
Overall I actually really love this PV. The girls looks too cute for words and the PV is entertaining. And it does manage to have a a consistent storyline throughout the PV. I normally don’t really like behind the scenes PVs because they are usually all the same. But this one has a pretty fresh feel to it. I don’t think any other behind the scenes PV was filmed as behind the scenes at a commercial shoot. And if there are any, I can’t think of them off hand.
Who doesn’t love Mayu’s awkward, innocent, unsure of herself face. It’s impossible not to!
She just makes failing miserably so adorable.
She’s looks like she’s going to cry here, it makes me want to hug her!
I have no idea what the directors are saying, so I’m just going to assume they are talking about replacing her. XD
Poor Mayu looks so defeated.
Can I just say how much I love these dresses? They are like 3 dresses rolled into one. A flamenco inspired dress on top, with a corset in the middle, and a fluffy idol skirt on the bottom.
No need to ask, Mayu’s the fairest of them all.
And the insanely simple dance moves begin.
Ok, this move is actually cute. But that’s only because it’s the epitome of idolness.
Poor huggable Mayu.
Eh, Ayaka does nothing for me. She kind of looks like a vampire. I’m not sure of any other way to explain it. XD
Natsumi on the other hand is gorgeous.
That wink! *O*
Misaki is a cutie too.
This hairstyle is perfect for Aika. It makes her look 10 times more adorable than usual.
Why do idols do this move so often?
I’m not really sure why Naa-chan is making this face, but I approve. XD
You know, holding your eye down like that would actually work. That’s how I learned to lift one eyebrow when I was like 8. XD
Take 35 she’s doing good. XD
The bright lights actually make them look awkward rather than pretty. The contrast is too high.
Now that’s an ameonna.
Having a lot of friends isn’t going to make you suddenly able to wink.
I always thought Mika was pretty ugly. But she doesn’t look that bad in this movie.
Poor Mayu can’t wink when it matters.
I love how the Aki-P type guy in the back says not being able to wink is cute. XD
Of course it has to end with Mayu winking.
I love how there’s a commercial at the end like it’s a real product. Genius!
Here’s the PV. You should watch it ASAP, because it won’t be up for much longer.
