I don't even know where to start with this one, but apparently Takashi Murakami has gotten together with acclaimed director McG and actress Kirsten Dunst for this ridiculously random
music video work of art called "Akihabara Majokko Princess".
Um, Just watch...
I can't lie, this was pretty damn entertaining, with an awkward cameo by Nigo in there, as well as Murakami himself dressed up as a giant one of his animated plush flower balled. Plus who doesn't want to see Kirsten Dunst dressed in anime clothes prancing around the streets of Akihabara?? ... or wait, is that just me?
And for all of those totally lost as to what is going on, Akihabara is one of the most interesting little places in the entire world. Its a small district in Tokyo where everyone dresses up as anime characters, princesses (or Majokko), and whatnot, and it's COMPLETELY NORMAL. There are also tons of anime shops, some are clean and cute, some are very sexual, but all are totally packed all the time. When I visited I saw a concert by the AKB48 as well as visited a Maid Cafe, and both were some of the most interesting things I've ever attended.
Oh and sidenote: the song covered is "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors
