The Bubblegum Brothers - Won't be Long

An oldie but goody. This video is great because of the 1) floormat they are dancing on, 2) the clothes everyone is wearing, 3) the fact that the song is catchy as fuck. The energy in the room reminds me of good 1980's Top of the Pops and the kind of energy a Korean nightclub nowadays gets when a song people recognize comes on. The fanaticism, down to the clothes and dance styles, are now a sadly bygone era in Japan, I feel.

You may recognize the singer, he is Brother Korn, aka 'Korn' the oft-featured panelist judge on the original Iron Chef series as it was played on FoodTV. Little connection back to food there.
