Track bikes in Japanese Hip-Hop video

I found this music video of the Japanese hip-hop group Rip Slyme. The set-up is that group members are working in a bike shop. My Nihon-go isn’t good enough to understand what they are talking about, at least not on the first listen. And I’m not sure how many more times I can endure to listen. BUT music aside, almost all the props in the video are actually quality keirin components and featured prominently enough that I can identify the model. And really, it’s a welcome break from seeing every wannabe American popstar posing in an Escalade while lip-synching to some cheesewhiz manufactured song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86iUu-9qfIo

a friend of mine translated this a while back… here are the lyrics.

(computer infused voice)
Living a life like a pack of blowing wind
Catching that moment when the storm passes by

(repeat)

Boom Boom it blows away Uh PuhPuhPiDoo
Boo Boo we’ll just blows through those whiny depressed people
Runs through the chaotic city, we can smell the difference between the truth and joke
Winding whirlwind, it’s up to us whether to blow or not to blow
You’ll be blown away boy yeah you should ride with us girl
Yeah man, wind is free
We need to be more easy, cool and breezy

Zoom Zoom Zoom it gets closer
Let’s ride this wind that steals everything in its way
A lot, many, the view that kills the imagination of all
Take me away with your light casual steps
To a place that noone has ever seen, that place Next Level
Envisioning our life in the large world scale
Meeting up with really big ideas
Hey stop being quiet and stop being so stiff, kick off that ground and look up that sky
What??? That it’s not a bird, it’s not a plane
It’s something like a phenomenon.

Open up your eyes and see
It goes around the world goes around
Comes around at the fastest top speed per second, it takes you away to a far place

Ok we will point our finger at that horizon
Our passion burns through our heart
Yeah we are almost there at the top of the mountain
Like riding a wind that takes us far

With our overflowing vice and pouring images and fulfilling love
We will blow the overwhelming boredom and unexpected anxiety away to tomorrow
With our overflowing soul and constant jokes and the best scream
We will blow the overwhelming excitement and unexpected tragedy away to tomorrow

Hey! How are you doing?
I’m in a middle of a long travel, I breathe the air in deeply, go on my way
How far can I go? Let’s just keep going
When I look back it’s all the same Pop Pop
I will switch it up and chop it up, Jump Up
I constantly blow them away and re-try again
With Jet Boomer (??) with wind blow my mind
Maybe there is not the world where we can see clearly
But sometimes wind blows and find us the right answer, and then Good Bye Day
I am blown away smoothly, Hey

Rolling Rolling Rolling
Oh my god the path separates again, our path? UGH that’s enough!
Trusting my 6th sense, pray, meditate, feel, and let’s keep going w/out beaten down
Best of luck! I’ll never give up
I am singing the luck song, thank you guys!
Is there such a world where we don’t have to keep going and coming back?
No! No! No!
We’ll blow away troublesome things by jumping over, Yampi Compi (??)
Que Sera sera BOO
We’ll dive in, I am here because of others, DIVE

Your excitement is amazing. Even when you are angry, its full of life
Let’s run through using our best blow, like that thriving power that storms have

I don’t care
I may look simple but my underwear is colorful
I have this power inside me
Waiting for good news, letting the wind take me wherever
I do have roots. Sometimes I blossom

I think I can find it one day, blow my mind
Let’s keep flying, yeah extraordinarily, blow my mind
I think I can find it one day, blow my mind
Let’s fly now, everything’s gonna be all right.

With our overflowing vice and pouring images and fulfilling love
We will blow the overwhelming boredom and unexpected anxiety away to tomorrow
With our overflowing soul and constant jokes and the best scream
We will blow the overwhelming excitement and unexpected tragedy away to tomorrow

Let’s go, to that place really really far away, our story will never end
Blow Blow Blow, to the tomorrow that never ends.

hey by any chance dan you post the lyrics, i’ve been lookin’ for it and I can’t find it and this is the closest to it, thanx

Rip Slyme is so cool, those Japanese really know how to make hip hop even better. Funny thing I saw is how they learn to dance hip hop moves, by watching cartoons!
