I was reading Tsuji Eriku’s post about old school idols in “Your Opinion Doesn’t Count” (link
), and I became interested in the story of Yukiko Okada. Not to ruin the ending, but this cute little idol seems to have committed suicide at age 18 for unknown reasons. I was looking for more videos of her, and I came across this little gem. It’s a performance of the last single she released while alive, which is enough to make it weird and unsettling all by itself, and….well…just take a look at it. The Japanese set the bar pretty high for putting weird shit on TV, but this ranks unusually well on the wtf? per minute scale. You’ve got to watch most of it, to about 1:40, to get the the weirdest (and most amusing/disturbing) parts.
Lalala. Riding my ladybug through the frozen forest of groping turtle-men(did I imagine it, or did it slap her ass as she was driving away?), some kind of hanging larva thing, and the absolutely terrifying trees that will haunt my dreams tonight. Not to make a terrible joke about this, but I suspect that those trees are telling her to do it. Okay, so that is a terrible joke. I do not want to make light of suicide in any way, and her death is no doubt a tragedy, but you’ve got to admit that those trees are hella creepy.
