TOKYO, December 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ —
– Uniquely Syncopated Music Combined with Intriguing Video Wins Accolades From All Over Japan –
SoftBank Mobile Corp., on Nov. 28, 2014, released an intriguing and stylish new music video featuring a young girl with an incredibly flexible body, a kitten in a Santa costume, and dozens of the company’s new frameless AQUOS Crystal smartphones.
The video starts off with a young girl resting her chin on her hand. As the camera zooms out, it shows her executing a 180-degree split and the viewer discovers that the AQUOS Crystal smartphone is recording her moves. As the girl lets out a sigh, the ticking of a clock located on the floor in front of her grows louder. Then, with the "pop" of a wine cork, another smartphone appears showing a bottle of wine being opened.
As images of a cabbage being shredded, fingers typing away at a keyboard, champagne glasses clinking together, and a kitten in a Santa costume appear in one smartphone after another, their sounds begin to sound like the Christmas carol "Joy to the World."
The video depicts the main concept behind the smartphone of a frameless body unit that "eliminates the boundaries between real and fiction," as well as a young girl wishing for something "merry" to happen at Christmas.
