At the beginning of January, DAMY announced the release of new single Tomodachi Gokko (トモダチごっこ) set to release April 4. Well, here’s another update for you, as the music video for said single is now available to watch!
DAMY take on the ever-so-popular carnival theme in this newly released music video. To set the scene, the video introduces us with a television displaying vocalist Ryo in his ringmaster style outfit while fragments of fair-ground music play from the crackling television. The video breaks into the song intro with some inserted creepy giggling, and now we just sit back and watch as Ryo beckons a child with words of friendship, and candy. For anyone who has watched the most recent adaption of Stephen King’s infamous IT movie, there is comparative child-snatching creepy clown vibes as the ending approaches. Of course, they use this to demonstrate the actions of fake friends which the song is titled after—Tomodachi Gokko (トモダチごっこ). So watch out for those “friends” who may actually be back-stabbing clowns.
