Foreign moments in music video history

'60s Japanese variety show hires violinist, makes mistake, gets the last laugh anyway

Hajime Hana and the Crazy Cats

 



The Plot:
Granted, this isn't a music video according to the dominant MTV-infused paradigm, per se, but it's a video and the content is all about music. And so. It's taken from '60s Japanese TV show, an allegedly famous comedy group Hajime Hana and The Crazy Cats, playing "Crazy Rhythm."
The Moment of Brilliance [Several, in fact]: 2:17: Violinist makes a mistake; gets sacked.
2:38: Host makes that Jerry Lewis face. And the last few seconds--is that guy getting hit on the back with those mallets? No? Oh, but his facial expression!--are beyond priceless.
The YouTube review: (by gregreezy) "haha is that chineze ?? or something whatever it's old :P"
(Also, by masaaki63:) "This is Shabondama-Holiday too. Shabondama-Holiday is a most paformed Variety show since 1961 to 1972 in japan. Thank you posting."
Why You Didn't See it on VH1: VH1 (and, by proxy, the American media in general) is run by ethnocentric bastards.
Side Note Worth Noting: This video has been viewed 35,918 times and "favorited" 121 times.   This proves my theories that a) Germans love David Hasselhoff, and that b) lots of people live in Japan, and that many a shitload of them have internet access, if not multiple computers running simultaneously. And, as such, even if you put up some crap on YouTube, if it's related to Japan, it's going to get roughly a billion views.
