Selective Hearing’s Tokyo 2012 Video Documentary

Visit Selective Hearing’s documentary post to stream the videos.

As one fourth of “The Japan 4”, I invite you to take a look at the documentary videos that Greg made of our trip. I spoke about the trip on a podcast before and I just experienced a great deal of nostalgia from watching these videos. Join me, community member Vu (@vupham), and Hiro and Greg of Selective Hearing on our journey in Tokyo.

From Greg’s post:

“From August 21 – 31 Selective Hearing & New School Kaidan went to Tokyo to see AKB48 at the Tokyo Dome and to geek out at any place within earshot of idols. This short 30 minute-ish documentary was compiled from hours of footage provided by various sources.

Obviously we couldn’t film or photograph everywhere we went but we did our best to capture the the craziness of the 10 days that we were there. There is a bit of snark in this video (that is the m.o. of Selective Hearing most days.) so don’t get too offended if there are some segments that might contain some content you may not agree with.”

  1. That was a very fun video to watch. I’ve been pretty sad cause I wasn’t able to go due to work, but, watching this actually cheered me up. It was really heartwarming for me, lmao. I don’t have any wota friends, online or off and seeing you guys share this experience with one another was somewhat therapeutic.

    Even if half of you couldn’t go to Tokyo Dome, you made the most out of the trip. Shit, and thanks to this documentary I’m able to live it vicariously to a degree. Its so cool that you guys got to be on Japanese TV. I especially liked the little crack on the Like! Japan Maniacs Gran Prix kids. That shit had me lolzin’.

    Ah, sucks that the video is so short through. I wish it was at least an hour. Left me wanting a lot more..

    Great video, thanks for sharing it! I really enjoyed watching that.
    Take care~

    P.S. – Dave, you’re def my NSK oshimen now.(need photosets fast..wat da fuc?!).. =oo=

    • Sup, it be I Greg, another part of the Japan 4. Thanks for checking out the vids. I too wish the entire thing was longer but I wasn’t sure how people would react to being randomly filmed so I tried to be careful.

      Next year I’m carrying the camcorder(s) around with me all the time & I’ll just go nuts until some random japanese person tells me to turn the camera off. =)
