Yayoi Daimon Goes Viral on Twitter With New Twerk Anthem “#KETSUFURE”

Rapper Yayoi Daimon‘s new release “#KETSUFURE” shakes up the status quo and has amassed more than 20,000 likes on Twitter in the past few days.

The twerk anthem from the self-identified Feminist Dance Hall Queen implores Grandma, Grandpa, and all the other party animals to join in and “Twerk Dat A**” in whichever direction wherever they may be, whether it be on the train or at the local FamilyMart.

The music video kindly offers close captioning in both Japanese and English to further spread Yayoi Daimon’s message around the world.

Warning: The video (obviously) explores buttock imagery and features former CyberJapan Dancers member Yurisa shaking her’s.

Yayoi Daimon is encouraging fans to get in on the fun and post videos of them and their friends twerking to the song by proposing the new hashtag #KETSUFURECHALLENGE. Link your entry to the challenge below!

King Gnu to provide the latest CM Track for Bourbon Alfort

It’s been announced that popular mixture rock band King Gnu have been tapped to provide the next CM song for confectionery brand Bourbon Alfort. The commercial stars actor Kentaro Sakaguchi and makes use of advanced projection technology in order to create an enthralling experience.

This reveal comes hot on the heels of the release of King Gnu’s recent digital single “Hikoutei”, an upbeat tune meant to match the summer season. By contrast, the CM track — “Kasa” — mixes jazz and electronic influences to produce a mid-tempo song more suited to autumn.

You’ll find both the special extended commercial from Bourbon Alfort and the audio for “Hikoutei” right after the cut.
