A month after Tokyo was chosen to host the 2020 Olympic games, Japanese dance performance group WORLD ORDER brings us “Welcome to TOKYO.”
In this video, the seven-man group does whimsical, slow-motion, synchronized dancing around Tokyo while wearing business suits. They slowly cross crosswalks, tilt like pendulums, and do some punching and jumping – and for the most part, bystanders don’t pay much attention. Posted one week ago, the video has garnered over 1 million views.
WORLD ORDER, created in 2009, has already produced two albums with original songs. One famous piece, “Machine Civilization,” was inspired by the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. WORLD ORDER was founded by Genki Sudo, a former mixer martial artist.
