Song Production Information
After a long time, a collaboration with Handsome JET.
The song was made after Baron's clip.
When JET and I were thinking about the content of the lyrics, we decided to "let's ask Baron about how he feels about them."
Once that our hopes were wonderfully finished, we were very happy.
The guitar was done by the newcomer Jin. The pace feels really good.
Video Production Information
It's been a while since V2 as I was working on another game, "Toy'sMarch2", so it's been a while since I was asked to work on a clip, and I've really enjoyed it.
It seems that the team that worked on my debut Gitadora song "Shikarare biyori" got together again to make this song. As the title of the song suggests, the guitar sound is very pleasant. It is upbeat.
Since the music and lyrics were ready when I created the clip image, I tried to express them in a straightforward and fast-paced manner. It was very difficult to make their hot summer time together funny.
I was personally particular about the car, which was used in so many shots this time that it competed with the girl's. At first, the request was for a mini car, but since my boom is American cars, I changed the setting. In the end, it all came out nicely, so I guess it's a good thing (?). I haven't seen the finished video yet, but I hope the world view of the song matches the video well. Play Guitar drive and work up a good sweat!
The nickname of the boy in the movie is "GT".
He is energetic, mischievous, and a car enthusiast. He is a skilled (?) restorer of American cars that were given to him by a friend at a reasonable price. He thinks he understands how girls feel, but in reality, he doesn't understand them very well.
The girl's nickname is "Angel".
She is cute and sexy, fashionable and strong, and her whole appearance is gyaru-like. When she gets angry, her cheeks puff up, which is another irresistible charm point of hers to GT.
I was so impressed with Baron's work that I said, "Please let me be in charge of this!" and cried and clung to the designers around me, begging them to let me work on the clip♪
The lyrics, "It's a miracle that I met you" knocked me out!
I was so impressed by the wonderful boy that Baron has created.
I was so attracted to the way the girl looked at me.
Ah~, how I wish I could ride in such a cool convertible~
With a guy like him, even ramen noodles would be a wonderful dinner!
...and so on
I was in constant dialogue with my inner voice while I was making the clip♪
↑ I sound like a dangerous person when I just say that....
When Takatan saw the angry girl, he said, "Cute! So cute!" I am very surprised that he said that.
...Is it a desire to be pushed around by a selfish girlfriend!? Is that so??
