World Order – Have A Nice Day (in Akihabara)

Japanese music video for Have A Nice Day by techno-pop group World Order. Decent song, interesting choreography and video concept…

The MV featured many elements of Tokyo’s Akihabara Electric Town, e.g. cosplay, specialist stores, maid cafe, anime, arcades, and girl group AKB48 etc.

World Order was formed in 2009 by Genki Sudo, a retired mix-martial artist and kickboxer, who also wrote most (if not all) of the group’s songs.

On side note, Godzilla is a (slightly tweaked) combination of two Japanese words, Gorilla and Whale. The original pronunciation was Gojira (gorira + kujira).
