Ayano Gou and Mukai Osamu for S - Saigo no Keikan the Recovery of Our Future Promo Campaign
Both actors had like hundred of interviews, stage greetings and tv appearances for the movie which finally premiered this Saturday. However people tend to repeat the same stuff over and over again at these things so I decided to summarise it all and pick up only the funny parts. Here we go!
Filming was very extra super hard because of demanding action and even ever stoic Ayano said that he doesn’t want to film inside a helicopter while carrying a rifle ever again. The filming set thus reminded them of male only sport club at school, filled with too many tough guys who work out all day long for some difficult sport event. Ayano added that he trained so much, he’s still perfectly capable to hold a rifle in a right way and to set it in less than 1 second.
Bromance time! They repeatedly said that they became friends through this project (starting with the drama last year) and that “this relationship seem to last for a long time”. Even Aragaki Yui mentioned that she was amazed at their bond and team-work.
Also, Ayano revealed Mukai’s hentai tendencies mentioning that he would often nonchalantly come to him and start to feel his butt with a straight face xD
On this day in music history: August 29, 1987 - “La Bamba” by Los Lobos hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks. Written by Ritchie Valens, it will be the biggest hit for the East Los Angeles, CA based band. Recorded as the theme song to the biopic of Mexican American rock & roll icon Ritchie Valens, the traditional Mexican folk song is based on the Son Jarocho style of music native to the state of Veracruz, and is often played at weddings. Valens rock & roll version (#22 Pop) is recorded in 1958 and is issued as the B-side of his biggest single “Donna” (#2 Pop). When Los Lobos records their version for the film (who also make a cameo appearance), they will use Valens’ arrangement of the song, adding a reprise at the end of the traditional folk arrangement. Entering the Hot 100 at #84 on June 27, 1987, it will climb to the top of the chart nine weeks later. The accompanying soundtrack album will also hit number one on the Billboard Top 200 for 2 weeks (on September 12, 1987), and to date has been certified 3x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
“Wait, wait–” His voice cracked, causing him to redden further. As if this whole ordeal wasn’t embarrassing enough, judging by Ben’s incredulity about his lack of knowledge of the world outside the Isle of the Lost. “There are bigger dogs than Dude? They-they come in bigger sizes?”
Oh hells, Carlos thought, his mother had been right.
