As all five members of Sakanaction awkwardly shifts from side to side in unison, I get taken aback by how poppy and humorous this music video is compared to every other one they have ever produced. Do you remember from our previous report that Shin Takarajima is actually written for the live action show of popular manga and anime BAKUMAN? That may be the reason to why this seems so different.

In the video we see energetic cheerleaders smash their pompoms into the serious faces of every member during their serious dance shuffle. Each clip of the video is worthy of an internet reaction meme, which has given me an idea. Why not make my own?

We can see how he subtly flinches as the pompom goes into his face.

Perhaps an award for most awkward dance?

We’re pleased with our new found talent in creating animated images. We should add that we’re a big fan of Sakanaction at JRockNews.com and have already listened to the YouTube upload more than we can count on both hands. Any readers who are fans? Let us know and let’s talk about them in the comments below.
