Recently the PV for Kis-My-Ft2’s new single She Her Her, was released.
I think Kisumai has successfully made one of the weirdest idol PVs I’ve probably ever seen. I can’t really think of another idol PV that matches it on the “WTF did I just watch?” scale. The PV starts out with an unnecessarily long intro and the members dressed as druids inside of a prison. The prisons then shart chanting She Her Her in their man in the iron mask looking masks as a yellow gas comes out of their mouths. There are also this random numbers and math equations floating in front of Kisumai for no apparent reason. And you’re really left asking yourself why are they there. The PV never really explains it. Taisuke holds up, then eats, a piece of gum and all is right in the world because after that the PV actually starts.
The PV starts out with white glittery sparkles flying out of Kisumai’s mouths, making it incredibly obvious that we’re watching a Johnny’s PV. Then loads more of sparkles and white floating balls fill the air, giving me so much second hand embarassment from watching and a good laugh. They PV is also supposed to feature fanservice, but Johnny’s lame attempts at fanservice don’t really even deserve to be called that. In one scene Taisuke and Yuta kiss the same flower and their faces almost touch. Seriously? That’s all we get? Indirect kisses like this and Ryo and Yamapi drinking out of the same cup in the Summer Time PV are not really what I have in mind. I can’t stand thatt female idol groups parade around in bikinis and kiss each other in PVs and at concerts, but male idols hugs and have their faces really close to each other. It’s ridiculous. Where’s the male idol equivalent? I feel like I’m the lone fangirl in this, because there are people out there that think this level of fanserivce is unnecessary. But I digress.
The main theme of this PV is Kisumai trying to relieve the iron masked prisoners bad breathe. In they do so with such high tech approaches as collecting their breathe as they ride a bike. And of course when they are in this super serious sciene lab they do so in style on their roller skates. Which is exactly what you want to be wearing in a lab. Rolling at high speeds with all that glass and chemicals around, and I can’t fathom what could possibly go wrong. Kisumai also collects data by having them breathe on mannequins. Which makes perfect sense because we all know how mannequins have an extremely low tolerance for bad breath. But it’s all worth it for the scene where Taisuke is all up on a mannequin. I’m pretty sure at one point he even kisses it. You can’t ask for anything better than that.
The finally at towards the end of the PV the toughest prisoner come out with chains,flies, and a giant cloud of bad breath, who by the way is some random guy who isn’t Japanese. You gotta wonder what he was thinkinh of while filming this. But have no fear that guy is no match for Kisumai’s rainbow colored breath.
The PV then tries to end on some high notes with the newly freed prisoners flalling behind the king of bad breathe, which is pretty stupid. But the realy highlight is when Kisumai dance in front of a rainbow filled sky, which immediately reminds me of Arashi’s Kitto Daijoubu PV.
I actually really like this PV. It’s the perfect mixture of WTF and humor. But there is one aspect of this PV that I don’t like, and that that fact that this PV is nothing more then one giant Watering Kissmint commercial. And would you look at that Kisumai were recently in a Watering Kissmint commercial, imagine that. I know JE boys always get endorsements because of how popular they are, but they don’t need to pimp those products in their PVs. They have shamelessly pimped the products they are endorsing outside of a commercial before, but it’s usually done at concerts. Like when Kame ate what I think was Crunky chocolate at one of KAT-TUN’s concerts, and when Hey! Say! 7 danced with fruit at one of their concerts. But I can’t really think of a time it was shamelessly featured in a PV. And that honestly throws the whole PV off. The whole moral of the PV is chew Watering Kissmint it relieves bad breath. Why didn’t they just hide Watering Kissmint in ever other frame too?
Totally getting a man in the iron mask feel, even though this one is made of leather.
Don’t get why they’re trying to make this all dark and serious.
Why the floating numbers?
The gum, it solves everything.
Now it feels like a Johnny’s PV.
Roller skates, now it feels like a Kisumai PV.
So dazzling that he knocks him over. Seriously?
Intense Hiro face. Lol.
The bird’s eye view kiss is kinda cool, I have to admit.
Taisuke is adorable.
Oh, the big fanservice. It sucks. :/
Taisuke looks pretty hot afterwards though.
Hiro always trys way too hard to look good. And it never works. Though he is growing on me personality wise.
Let me just randomly skate across the lab.
Love Hiro’s reaction. Hate how he’s the only one reacting while everyone else has a blank stare.
The dance is terrible.
And Hiro has the most genuine reaction when the flowers bloom.
Wow, they actually showed the other members for longer than a second. Senga has the best reaction by the way.
This dance, there’s just nothing good about it.
So, Taisuke who’s the hot girl you’re with?
That’s right, you kiss that mannequin.
Is this seriosuly a scene in the PV?
Doing the moon walk on roller skates.
WTF is with this move?
Swing your partner round and round.
Oh it’s serious now.
He doesn’t really look that tough.
Of course he has to be American or European.
I like how they eat the gum in beat to the song.
Of course rainbow beams! But where have I seen those before?
Oh yeah, in the Watering Kissming commercial.
I don’t even know what to say about this.
They’re free. Hooray I guess.
Miya nose beam. I couldn’t resist. Though I think this is lost on my JE readers. XD
Taisuke looks so good.
