Back in September I first gave the heads up that Charlie's Angels helmer McG was soothing his post-Terminator Salvation wounds by filming a music video in Tokyo's Akihabara district, where all the high-end electronics stores are and J-nerds outnumber normal people by a ratio of 852 to 1. Spider-Man squeze Kirsten Dunst was photographed by passers-by wearing a cute Sailor Moon-inspired costume. I'll admit, the photos made me feel a little whirly inside.
Now the music video is out and can be watched in its entirety. Called "Akihabara Majokko Princess" and a cover of "Turning Japanese", it's on the demo reel of the video's colorist Stefan Sonnenfeld on the Company 3 website. The video can be watched many, many times.
You want that link, don't you?
What's your favorite movie and pop culture news website? C'mon, say the name. Say it.
Alright. Here you go. The vid's owners are removing it when the film appears on third party video hosting sites like YouTube so go watch it from the source.
I predict that inside of a year the concept of this video will be greenlighted as a $25 million dollar movie starring Kirsten Dunst and Megan Fox as two American girls visiting Japan and turning Japanese. Anyone want to predict what the opening weekend gross of that movie will be, take a stab at it below.
Now I forgive Kirsten for starring in Spider-Man 3. Even McG is pardoned for having a three letter name.
UPDATE: Company 3 pulled the video from their site! That leaves me with no other option than to play with danger and embed from YouTube. Will it be pulled from the 'Tube too?
