Hilarious: The Checkers (???????) namidano rekuesuto

Not that I’m a big fan of The Checkers (???????), but I came ac across them on with the song Electronic Dreams which is absolutely horrible. So actually I was looking for that video instead.

However I did come across their music video of Namidano Rekuesuto (also known as Namida no Request):

If you can’t watch the video, here is it located on youtube:

As you can see this is definitely a more horrible 80s video then

Hilarious: CCB – Romantic ga tomaranai

The CoConut Boys (C-C-B) are a quite well known band in Japan. They made a few hitsongs during the 80s. Lately they featured a song on the soundtrack of Densha Otoko and since I was looking for a different song on that soundtrack I came across C-C-B’s Romantic Ga Tomaranai (1985):

Wow! 80s sunglasses, 80s synthesizers, electronic drum kit, gelly hair and synchronous ballet dancing! Talk about 80s here!!

IMHO synchronous ballet dancing in videoclips is the worst thing ever happened to popular music! But it surely gives you that 80s feeling. Anyway, the synchronous ballet wasn’t the only thing they ripped: they also copied Madness with their white suits walking in a straight line. Also the whole clip feels a bit 80s anime as well: it is really comic like, especially with the exaggerated samurai.

Best thing of this band is that they had Kim Jung Il as their drummer:
