After watching the full PV it seems that the PV is just as cheaply made as the PV preview from ZIP showed. The entire PV only has 2 equally simple sets. And yet, I cannot find one fault for the PV. Yes, it’s a cheaply made PV, but it’s done in such a way that you don’t even really notice. The PV is still very interseting and entertaining. And that’s mostly due to the fact that they really used the main set to their full advantage. The main set isn’t really much to look at. It’s basically a giant white runway with these weird abstract, I’m going to call them towers, periodically placed throughout the set. On an all black background with dozens of white lights. And the background and lighting are pretty much cheap sets 101. H!P has done several sets just like that when they can’t afford anything better. And Hey! Say! JUMP probably would have been able to have a better set if they didn’t insist on making horribly cheap PVs for Wonderland Train and Su.Ri.Ru which are have the same awful fanmade feel to them that the Aing – Aishiteru PV did. The set is white so I guess it does have a very crisp and polished feel to it. And it makes the brightly dressed Hey! Say! JUMP pop. But at the same time it’s all white which is bland and boring in itself. But like I said they really do take full advantage of the set by using it in two other ways. The first way is obviously the members walking down it like a runway. Which I actually like because it shows off the members. But it is a little silly when you think about it because it has absolutely nothing to do with the song. And the other way is used for group close-ups. And I gotta hand it to them they really try to fool the viewer into thinking it’s a different set by lowering the lighting. I also really like the close-up set. It kinda of looks like funhouse mirrors but done in a better way.
The dance for this is also incredible. It’s perfectly in synch and the moves are really dynamic. However, this PV doesn’t really show too much of the dance which is kind of sad. And they mainly focus on the worst part of the dance which is the stupid eyes over the face move. And they don’t show the Yamajima move, what’s up with that? I seriously recommend watching their Shounen Club performance of this song if you want to see the dance, they totally killed it. I posted it on tumblr a few weeks ago, hopefully it didn’t get deleted yet.
But much like with any cheap PV the best parts of the PV are the members themselves. They look absolutely incredible. Well, most of them do. I have no idea what they were thinking when they did Hikaru’s, Keito’s, and Inoo’s hair. They look ridiculous. And the guys are wearing 2 outfits that are really great. Suits and more casual outfits. And they are styled pretty nicely for the most part. Expect Chinen’s casual outfit makes him look like a clown, Hikaru’s pants are disgusting in each outfit, and who really wears ascots ever? But besides that they look incredible. Especially my beloved Yuto. He looks amazing in both outfits, and he co-leads the PV with Ryosuke. The amount of Yuto screen time in this PV is amazing. Yes, Inoo and Keito only get like 3 seconds of screen time to compensate for it. But I’m not going to even pretend that I care about that. Yuto hasn’t gotten this much screen time since Mayonaka no Shadow Boy, and I’m going to relish every second of it. Especially since he’ll most likely be taking his usual postion in PVs for their next single, lurking in the back or just off to the side.
They focus way too much time on the title screen.
Ryosuke tries too hard to make and intense face, but it just looks awkward.
He should just focus on looking pretty.
I’m always impressed by this move.
What a great scene. Who doesn’t want to just see their pants?
Ryosuke’s conceited pose.
I don’t get why Hikaru keeps doing his hair like this, as if it looks good.
Cheap lighting 101.
No, seriously it is.
Work it Yuto. XD
Modeling in a PV will forever remind me of Morning Musume’s Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai PV.
I absolutely love the close-up scenes set.
Nice outfit, but I cannot stand Chinen.
I like Hikaru’s outfit from the waist up. But what’s going on with the rest? Baggy pants tucked into boots, I can’t even with this.
I love Yabu.
Takaki has the best outfit.
Yuto looking adorable during the dance scenes.
Chinen’s outfit is just awful.
Intense close-ups of the towers. It’s hilarious that these abstract pieces get more screen time than Inoo and Keito do. Lol.
Daiki looks so good here.
The sitting down reminds me of
NEWS’s Hoshi wo Mezashite PV.
Yabu’s a cutie.
That hair. o_O
And that hair. o_O
At least Keito does have normal hair at one point. He looks cute here, too bad you hardly see him.
Can I just laugh that the group close-ups are split by having Hey! Say! 7 in one group and Hey! Say! BEST in another, like they should be, and that instead they are split by popularity? This group features the most popular members.
What’s up with Hikaru’s pants? Are we in the 80’s all of a sudden?
Oh, Yuto. I love how the mirrors shows a different expression.
Hikaru is still cute under all that ugly hair.
Oh look, they finally show the least popular members group full on.
Why do they insist on showcasing their worst move?
I don’t get why they show the set floating at the end.
