This is probably the most epic food fight you’ll ever see. I love this video for multiple reasons. First, it’s satisfying how the beats and overall flow of the song match the action on the screen. Second, the sheer ridiculousness of this fight goes great with the sheer intensity and playfulness of Babymetal. And perhaps most of all, it’s a Japanese band performing an American-inspired musical genre set to an American show mimicking a Japanese-inspired television genre.
At the time I decided to create this video, it was during the lead-up to the 2015 League of Legends World Championship. The previous year’s tournament had a music video and theme song that was really memorable. This year, for some reason, they had a theme song but no video for it. So made one. I used the video from the previous year and set it to this year’s theme.
