That's really catchy! Wait, was that James Brown?
Japanese Rasta @ !:20
I saw Takuya Kimura @2:28...
Shingo is a famous boy-band guy (band called SMAP). Cameos by his former band mates are in there. Basically it's saying good morning everyone, breakfast is important.Check him out in the NHK historical drama Shinsengumi. He's totally cool.
I don't think James Brown realized where he even was...Oha!
although this could be considered scarring for the children involved, i couldnt help but continue watching in silent admiration.
I believe the "Japanese rasta" at around 1:20 was one of their Olympic snowboarders.
Like I've said before, it has to be that radiation from the WW2 bombings.
Is it me or this is that reference on that Toradora episode when both characters said "Oha"/stops being a weabooNow this is awesome-Spikey
Is the boy in 25sec area turn into a women witha bra????????????WTF is it a really women in disgiuse???????????
The god father of soul must really need money
oO Bad, Japan, no oranges for you.
I should also point out that this was produced about 2000 by Konishi Yasuharu (Pizzicato Five). It even includes his trademark drum roll at the beginning and end. The character is based on a role from a variety show that SMAP members usually are found infesting since 1990.For a similar theme, look for Geisha Girls (comedy team Downtown, produced by Towa Tei).
I also like that at one point they do the dance from the 3 Amigos, and then finish it with the arm raising from Thriller. Now that's fine choreography.
Is there any point in it?????????????? <_>....
This video is awesome. I want that song.
actually all smap members do appear xD also the other people are comedians and stuff... XD still... that doesn't change the WTF fact XD
LOL everyone watch this for more Shingo! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp8ttwikTEs
More Shingo Katori:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vD6gTrvuG0MRolling Bomber Special!
WTF is up with the guy saying "oha" at exactly 2:42? It looks like he´s in a wheelchair doesn´t have any arms!!!
I love how James Brown doesn't seem too bothered by the man in the dress.
I dought he's telling the truth about his cooking.They exploded... WTFIf you don't eat your breakfeast you have to oha?He speaks english?Clones?Earthquake? WTF is going on?-_-
Some of the music sounds a lot like a song by Freddie Cannon from the early 60s; the one about making dedications on the radio...
The young girl with ponytails in the yellow t-shirt is absolutely adorable.Too cute for words.
It sounds like they're singing about getting up in the morning, eating their breakfast, and different members of their family. I could be wrong... I'm just learning Japanese, but that's what I'm picking up. It looks like a kid's show. I think we need to send them Barney and some of our scary stuff, just to get even.
O.Oeither, I've seen this before or it's dejavuBut i'm certain I dreamed this a few days ago.
those indians were the UGLIEST wow.
Was living over there when this came out (2000-2001) - and yes like others have commented above the youngest member of SMAP (famous boy band) did this. The SMAP boys were in dramas and other variety show along with the SMAP variety show that was on every Monday night. Think it was in the last couple of years one member was in trouble for drink driving.'Oh ha' - what memories!

Holy crap. I remember when I live in Guam and a Japanese school came to sort of learn with us (à la "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"). Anyways, when they first came in, they peformed this song! The same choreography too!
Opa opa: free kudos' to all motowners in Nihon!
Man what a sweet tune!
Takuya looks so young...
OMG is that some japan baboon obama at 2:39+ :D :D :D

I love how they James mothereffing Brown and they give him all of two lines, one of which is 'Oha'.
