Friday Funny – Bump of Chicken & Chris Bosh Editon

21 06 2013

Today we’ve got a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.  First up, a nice team find, led by our San Gabriel Valley bureau chief, and Senior Asian Cinema correspondent – a live-action Gatchaman movie is coming out.

Bump of Chicken is a Japanese rock band

In the trailer for this movie, we noticed something strange in the corner of the screen – a reference to “Bump of Chicken”.

It turns out they are a Japanese rock band – and a pretty good one too!

Here’s an entertaining video from them – “Sailing Day”:

Of course, we’d like to give a shout out to our favorite Japanese American/Japanese rock band, Lemon Drop Kick:

They do a great cover of Vacation by the GoGos, but I can’t find it on YouTube.

Next up, we want to salute – in the RttRL fashion – the Miami Heat’s recent win over the San Antonio Spurs, for the 2013 NBA Championship title. Specifically, we wanted to share the following images that were ricocheting around the office this morning:

Here’s the original from a couple of years ago:

Although, we have to admit – Bosh is a hell of an athlete, as odd-looking as he may be on the court.  And look – when he smiles, he looks nice!  Bosh, you’re on the wrong coast, dude. Come out West please.
