クレイジーケンバンド!

The Crazy Ken Band! Cool and Hot! Swinging horns! Groovy chicks! Fast cars! Danger! Crazy! CRAZY!

Respect! Otosan
A fan's Apple iTunes commercial parody, plus a cat jumping out of an orange

For a dozen years they've been mining rich veins of rockabilly, jumping jive, Henry Mancini's jazz soundtracks, Detroit muscle cars and trad Japanese music. But nevermind that right now. Even their product endorsements are cool:
Hallelujah Xmas!
Hemi Hemi Dodge Cruising!

Crazy Ken even digs hip-hop: m-flo loves Nomiya Maki & Crazy Ken Band Cosmic Night Run! (and again, live!)
Apologies for my not knowing the slightest bit of Japanese. Hover over the links for whatever info I could make up.

I didn't know Jeremy Clarkson was in a Japanese MOR band. I thought he went in more for prog rock.

Umm, in the fourth link that's not a chick. Just sayin'.

Not the person in the back seat at about 0:45-0:60? With the odd makeup? In a bikini? Damn. I guess I need glasses.

More exclamation points than any band has a right to!

Check the contents of said bikini & make an appointment with the optometrist.
