And my my, how deprived I would have been if that had been the case.
|Put your hands up if you want more slummy Arashi acting nothing like the idols they |
are today! Wink at me twice if you remember what they're watching in this scene (¬‿¬)
Like really, imagine if I had never met Shun, Chu, Haru, Bon or Takuma. Then I wouldn't have laughed myself half to death watching the scene the picture above is taken from. And I wouldn't have been treated to the amateurishly censored crotches of Japan's now-top idols in the scene below:
|"Oshiri ben ben!"|
And just because this scene was THAT hilariously iconic, I'll include their bunny-tailed asses in this post, too. You're welcome, ladies and gents.
|"Oshiri ben ben!"|
Because you know, entertainment isn't always about making it big and having thousands of screens across the country decorated with your flawless face; sometimes, after all that sparkling hot action in bigshot venues (Kokuritsu, anyone?) and all those sizzling scenes with the industry's A-list actresses, maybe there comes a time when you just feel like you want nothing more than to sit back with your best buddies and dick around pointlessly just because you can. Even if it's only for a little bit, like, say, half a movie?
|Laughing without a care in the world, the boys (minus Chu) make their |
grand escape into the bay as sirens sound in the background.
|Master Demolisher Chu greets them with a "BOMM!" |
as they stumble to a stop, still breathless from the running.
|"Eh? Haru, what's up with you?"|
|Haru: "I've become a man."|
Haru: "I... had sex!" (beams and sends fangirls aehbeibaphibah dfljvbefvbashfib)
Others: (look at each other, then run over to grab, pet, punch, ruffle and in all bro-ey ways congratulate Haru)
|The laughter dies on their lips as the grim sight of Takuma's hanging father greets them.|
|All pranks are forgotten as the cruel reality pushes them all to grow up in that one split second.|
|Takuma: "Your stocks, don't lose them."|
Haru (mumbling): "Baka."
|Then, Chu says, "Shun, you should go home."|
|Bon: "It's tomorrow, isn't it? The Aoyama exam."|
|Haru:"What do you think you're doing? You've worked so hard these days."|
|Shun just turns his head so his eyes catch a bit of the dim light, and says, "Ussei!"|
(for all those not familiar with slang-ey Japanese, Ussei = Urusai)
|Takuma lets his first tear trickle down his cheek.|
|And cue the waterworks. Though it's really beautifully restrained. Just a streak or two|
down the cheek. Almost silently. Ahhhh~ Heart. Broken.
