Hirai Ken is one of famous Japanese singers whose music features most of contemporary R&B, jazz, funk and hip-hop style. His newest single has just been released on 26 October 2005 in Japan, after some 14 months from his previous single. It’s called "POP STAR." The song features fast beat music and rhythm as Ken’s trademark and style. Anyway, what is interesting about this song is its promotional video, or PV in short. I have just had a chance to watch this PV and it’s certainly funny and well shot. In this video, Hirai Ken simultaneously portrays seven roles in the set that was originated from the famous "Ed Sullivan Show." This CBS television show is the longest running variety series in the American TV history. Back to the video, we could see a group of three singers (three Hirai Ken in three different styles) called "KEN" performing the song with some funny stuffed mascots (also Hirai Ken) dancing in the background and the host (again, it’s Hirai Ken) of the show appreciating the song at the side of the stage. Finally, we see the producer (yes, it’s indeed Hirai Ken!) comes and congratulates everyone at the end of the show. For the captures of this PV, please visit aqua_syun’s blog (in Japanese) from where I got the information regarding this video. Thanks again, aqua_syunさん.
