It appears that my mention of YamaPi last week sparked a mini-stampede to watch Buzzer Beat, and converted some new fans to my Pi. Yay for more Pi love!
I try to keep everyone updated on Pi news (harhar, pun intended) here and there. Lately he’s been busy with the NEWS 2010 concert in Japan. Towards the end of the year he’ll ramp up promotions for Ashita no Joe (JOE!!!!).
Sony has been on a rampage lately taking down YT videos of its music. Pi’s latest single, the One and a Million MV, is impossible to keep up for longer than 24 hours. I’ve found his performance of the song on a variety show and hopefully this will be available for longer.
This performance also confirms that half the single is in English, which I was sure about but couldn’t confirm from the ROFL-tastic official MV since I was busy staring at the Euro door-chick and wondering how vacant her brain was. And rolling in hilarity over Pi’s very shiny boots.
One in a Million Performance:
It’s eery how much Pi looks like Kame in the MV and the various performances for this single, with the same lean physique and sunken cheekbones, and the weird ojisan hairdo that only Kame pulls off.
I wants old Pi back! If I wanted gaunt Pi I would have just become a Kame fangirl (well, I guess I kinda am if you consider how many KAT-TUN songs I know and how funny I find Jin + Kame to be).
Hopefully Pi will take a drama next and shed the I-am-a-lean-mean-fighting-machine image. He’s got to get back on the romantic leading man wagon if he wants to retain and cement any possibility of being the successor to KimuTaku.
