Have you ever wondered what would happen if Japan’s godfather of gore Yoshihiro Nishimura directed a music video for the Land of the Rising Sun’s equivalent of The Ramones, complete with fireball-spewing transformable kimono girls and a dude with Gatling guns sprouting from his upper (and one of his lower…) extremities? Well, neither have I, but fortunately for us, that’s exactly what has happened. And let me tell you, it kicks ass!
Tokushima Drunkard (Danny), Izumo Youkai (Dory) and Naniwa No-Good (Bogie) of Japanese rock ‘n’ roll band The 50 Kaitenz have displayed their impeccable taste in choosing Japan’s master of monster himself, Yoshihiro Nishimura, to direct their latest promotional video, “KILLER.” If you love the kind of rock that will make your neighbors hate you when you play it loud, you might just like The 50 Kaitenz. And even if you don’t, you’re sure to enjoy the outrageously over-the-top video that Mr. Nishimura has put together for us this time. What are you waiting for?
Also, look forward to my next post, where I’ll talk about my experiences on the set of one of the HELLDRIVER short films!
