Silver Beat in Training

The Movement You Need Is On Your Shoulder

We've all heard about the intense pressure the Japanese place on their kids to get good grades or risk dishonoring all of their ancestors. We have seen this in the arts as well - piano lessons, violins - you know what I'm talking about. Here's evidence that the Japanese will stop at nothing, as they move into the realm of pop music as well.

This kid is one of many youngsters being raised to replace Tadaaki Naganuma, Eric Mabuchi, Hajime Kubo, or Yukinobu Kabe. My guess is that he's gunning for Mabuchi.

That's a terrible version of Hey Jude.

And put some fucking pants on too.

Nice try. The kid is from Korea, not Japan.
