Today's PV is Hey! Say! JUMP's OVER. It is a bitter-sweet PV but not really because of anything in it but rather everything that happened around the release of this single. Just days before OVER went on sale the underage smoking scandal with Morimoto Ryutaro broke out. Of course Johnny's was not going to cancel a release so they just put Ryutaro on probation until the dust cleared then went on to have HSJ move on as a nine member unit. So this is the last PV we have with the group as a ten member unit.
And I know there are still fans that feel that somehow Ryutaro will return to the group, but it has never happened to any of the other groups that had similar scandals and I do not see it happening for HSJ. And with every release without him is another nail in that coffin as the group gains new fans that are not going to be attached to him as fans who were around when the group was ten members.
|You know this is fiction when Nakajima is getting more attention than Yamada.|
|"Do you guys even know what a private call is?"|
|Yuto tries to make a run for it.|
|Takaki ... must I really say more?|
|For double the fun.|
|HSJ showing off their silly walk.|
|You mean I can't have a large pizza the same price as a medium?|
|"Cheer up Yamada, I have a coupon for free bread sticks."|
|Love how no one seems to care about the random floating things.|
|Somebody's going to get hit in the head with something.|
|That is not how you go down stairs Chinen. -_-|
|"Hey! It's been a whole few seconds since I last saw you guys!"|
|"Everyone! Try to look cool!"|
|"Hold that thought."|
|I wonder if Hikaru realizes part of his shirt is untucked.|
|A happy Yamada means a happy HSJ.|
|Blinded by the light.|
|What is with those suspenders?|
The PV ends with a close up of Yamada's butt. Okay, it is a close up of him putting the phone away in his back pocket but I doubt people were not distracted. Even though with those pants there is nothing to see.
A good PV, not one of my favorites but one I will not forget if just because of it being Ryutaro's last showing with the group, even though he did not get a lot of screen time like usual.
But I do like the song and I am happy that it will finally be on an album. Though I do wonder if they plan on taking Ryutaro's vocals out of it. They did so with NEWS when Uchi Hiroki and Kusano Hironori had been removed and Ryutaro did not have solo lines in these songs so it would be easy to do. I guess we will see when the album comes out in a couple of months.
