Over at New School Kaidan, I write a few words about some of the recently released promotional videos. At times, this is a bit of a grueling task, and all of my thoughts can get a little scattered when multiple PVs are released on the same day. But, I always try to present the promotional videos in the best light possible, and I try to remember that each of these pieces of entertainment for your a me is actually the manifestation of a dream for some young girl or girls out there in Japan. Here then is a collection of those write-ups, with a few words sometimes added after a week+ of viewing.
This week we have Promotional videos from:
DAOKO – Haikei Goodbye Sayonara
The promotional video of her digital single release, Daoko finds herself entangled with a photographer. “Haikei Goodbye Sayonara” presents itself as an (almost) straightforward pop song with Daoko’s rap turning into singsong. The photography shoot seems to start normally with a detached Daoko sitting for the hairdresser and changing into strapless thing. Just when things turn a bit violent, it becomes clear that things are not exactly as they seem. I’ve always wondered how they managed to get these kinds of photographs, and now I guess I know! Daoko’s digital single “Haikei Goodbye Sayonara” is out now.
