Moumoon – YAY Japanese music video

Japanese music video for YAY by pop band moumoon. The song was released a few months after Sunshine Girl in 2010 but didn’t draw my attention then.

Sunshine Girl was one of my favourite songs last year; YAY is just OK relatively. What’s special about this MV though, is that it starred four exclusive models from CanCam Magazine. It’s eye candy even if you don’t like the music.

The featured girls are Aiku Maikawa, Mizuki Yamamoto, Hasuki Tsuchiya and Mew Azama. The video also showcased some cute fashions and makeups (and kitchen settings LoL?) which young Japanese women would love.
