Supercar - Wonderword (single mix)
I LLLLLOOOOOOOVVVEEEEEEE Supercar, definitely one of the best bands to come out of Japan. It's so awesome to see them getting recognition on a website of this caliber.
i like the part where the giant ping pong ball turns into a balloon.
The band broke up some time ago. Unfortunately.
More videos from them here: tokyovisualmusic.blogdrive.com
D: are you serious?
also, all the video links on that site are broken.
The first and third of you YouTube links are broken. The rest work.
I love these Supercar videos. Keep them coming if you can.
I think this is my new favorite band, even if they're broken up and I can't understand a word.
Anyone know where to get .mov's or .mpg's of some of these?
I have a bunch of their vids on my computer, if you know of a way for me to make them available for download, I'd be glad to share...
badandy: besides youtube or google video?
(oh, and: gotta love these videos...)
this is one of the greats, this and the White Surf Style 5 videos are exceptional for their low-budget/production value, high concept/creativity. Fun and interesting. Great stuff!
can anyone translate the lyrics for us? (i hope knowing what's being said won't ruin it)
unfortunately centigrade-j doesn't have it...
Wow, I like these piecemeal lessons in hot Japanese videography..
This is one of my all time favourites. I saw it at Resfest 2004, and everyone in the crowd absolutely loved it. I think its brilliant, and sadly it's one of the only music videos ever done by Koichi Tsujikawa (he did that "Eyes" clip for Getty Images' 'Big Idea' project). Can ANYONE find a better copy of this video anywhere? I would love them forever. I actually would pay for a copy if I someone could direct me towards a hard copy or a hi-res version or something. Thanks.
I'm uploading the copy I have to megaupload, I will post the link when it's done.
Some other Supercar videos I have:
-Yumegiwa Last Boy (cool CG video)
-White Surf Style 5 (the superhero-sized troubles of a man and a woman)
-Lucky (a "live" performance on some Brit's TV show)
-Strobolights (marionette show with dancing animals and singing flowers)
-Drive (filmed on digital video I believe, with the band running around Sunny California)
-Fairway (a quiet afternoon at the lake, until the creature from the black lagoon
-Be (crazy gum-chewing guy shoots people every time soccer player misses a goal)
-Aoharu Youth (boy with big eyes and supernatural powers is investigated by scientists with equally big eyes)
-Desperado (live video with some intermittent black and white animated segments)
-Cream Soda (live video from fairly early in Supercar's career)
-Planet (I think this one's just about the band's bassist traveling cross-country)
-Sunday People (outer space-themed video where UFO comes to Earth and abducts the band)
-My Girl (band's singer stands in a fake rainstorm for entirety of video, frequently readjusts raincoat)
-Last Scene (one of the band's last videos - follows exploits of crazy dancing businessman, includes neat mini fireworks display)
Well, that's pretty much what I have, if anyone is interested I will try to post them on here.
ok here it is!
Supercar - Wonder Word (Single Mix):
badandy311: could you upload them all?
PLEASE upload them all.
sure, I'll get right on it!
but not all at the same time (if possible).. s'hard to watch everything in one swipe..
Yeah, of course...I think I'll upload three for now, wait a day or two, then up some more. Sound good?
