This video was featured in the Dance Dance Revolution Nonstop Megamix Music Video Project which premiered at Anime Weekend Atlanta 7.
This was an almost-but-not-quite last-minute contribution. As such, I tried to save time by using a capture now, think later, plug-and-chug editing method. In other words, I captured stuff I liked without any thought as to where it would fit into the video. I was hoping that some sort of plan would materialize as I captured footage. Unfortunately, I never came up with a plan. As such, the video is an assortment of random Uresei Yatsura characters doing random stuff. The video has little structure and no progression.
I didn't understand the lyrics. It seemed like a fun, wacky song so I used fun, wacky footage.
To give the video a unique look, I tried to avoid using main characters (especially Lum, Ten, Ataru, and Mendou). I was hoping to rely mostly on Ran, Sakura, Onsen-Mark, Mr. and Mrs. Moroboshi, Cherry, and the penguins ('cause I like the penguins). I ended up using quite a bit of Ataru footage because it worked well with the look of video. Conversly, I didn't use much (if any) Mr. and Mrs. Moroboshi footage - they didn't work well with the video. Occassionaly, Lum sneaks into the background. A costumed Mendou also appears.
"Reggae Ataru" would be a more descriptive title. I went with "Reggae Megane" because it has a nicer ring to it. Not the most intellectually stimulating title. Then again, this isn't an intellectually stimulating video.
