While I’m typing this, I have the song playing on repeat non stop, I must say that after playing it for a couple of times the songs gets to you. Personally the music video isn’t really my thing, from what I read online the people are divided as well, as one says it’s awkward while others say they like the relaxed atmosphere. For me personally it’s a little bit of both. In the beginning, the members are all divided around the house doing various things, but even when together there doesn’t seem a connection. Looking sad in the kitchen while eating, playing cards and more. Between the things they do, they sometimes sing along, but it seems random. I do feel the moments they enjoy themself are sincere. The little group dance at the end around the table is very adorable. I wonder if they would dance that during live performances as well!
Question; What happened in that house Arashi? Just kidding, seems like they had a fun party.
Although I find the music video itself very boring, the song is nice, a little funky old style and once you listen to it, you miss it when it stops playing. The lyrics and the music video couldn’t be more different, but that something I also prefer so we can’t complain about that. The voices of Arashi fits perfectly with these kind of songs.
