Danny Choo Boogies Down With KimuTaku

I love it!

This is a video of Takuya Kimura, SMAP and commercial ad superstar, as well as future star of the live-action Space Battleship Yamato flick. ( Via Japan Probe.)
 
 
This is a video of Danny Choo, uber-blogger and otaku extraordinaire. (Would it be safe to say that Choo is the world's most famous otaku?)
 
  I don't know about you, but I bust a gut at these. Choo has really got his groove back! Or...on...or something. Ahem.

How long do you think it took him to learn the dance? Can any of you "pop" like that?

...well I bet he is a good dancer but learning those moves with the storm trooper suit on, and have it not fall apart, might have taken some time!

OK, I have seen so many Takuya Kimura ads the past couple of weeks, I have to ask, is it always like this in Japan?  Is he as overexposed as it seems?  I'd want to cover his head with a bag after a couple of weeks of that (and so yes, I'm getting close).

1. I find that song SOO repellent that I can't watch more than the original CM. It would drive me insane to have that popping up every commercial break while watching my shows.
 
2. Does Danny ever freaking sleep?! With all the stuff he does, when did he have time to learn this dance?
 
I'm going to go put a bullet through my head to get rid of that damn song, now…
