On the road again…
If you watch the video carefully, you’ll notice that several times I accidentally cross into the oncoming lane of traffic. Fortunately there weren’t many cars on the road, or else I’m sure we would have died.
You may also notice that we very clearly don’t know the words to the song. But that doesn’t stop us, since if there’s one thing living in a country where karaoke is the national past time has taught us, it’s that even if you don’t know the lyrics to a song, as long as you sing it in a funny voice and make exaggerated gestures, people play along.
The car is probably the only place in everyday Japan where you can blast your music as loud as you like, since apartments (and even houses) have such thin walls your neighbors can hear you whisper, to say nothing of music played through speakers.
So you gotta rock out when you can.
