Fit's FIT'S!

A couple weeks spent prancing about in Paris and a short jaunt to London and I am totally behind on the cultural scene in Tokyo. In that short time I have missed out on the newest dance craze. I must get out my dancing shoes and start practicing immediately. I'd seen this on TV before leaving and prematurely wrote it off as an extremely annoying commercial and only now do I realize that I need to put out my own version of it on YouTube to be considered hip again. Or was I never considered hip in the first place?! Without further ado...



It is now being practised and copied by everyone so jump on the bandwagon!

Schoolgirl style...



Obachan style...



Salaryman style...



B-boy style...





This is just a mere sampling of the talent out there, you can find more on YouTube, which is co-sponsoring a dance contest with the gum's maker Lotte. If you too are an aspiring Fit's dancer you have until April 27! The winner will be decided by the number of hits each video gets on YouTube. You can also check out how to consume the Fit's gum ("Pick! Get! Pull!") on the Lotte website, in case you were unsure.

I actually bought that gum the other night without ever having seen the commercial. Can't say I am particularly impressed, but when is gum ever impressive?

I am not sure whether or not I should be amused by the videos... although there was something sadly cute about Obaachan's failing attempt.

There are not enough D= in this world to adequately express my face when I saw this in action...

God I hate that damn commercial. And I feel really sorry for that boy from Kat-Tun for having to dance to that. Although the money he made might have compensated for the loss of cool factor...

I'm glad most of you enjoyed this little tidbit. I haven't seen many people busting out the dance choreography around town here in Tokyo but the beau and I made up for that by drunkenly doing the dance down the street in Ginza a while back.
