When American Bands Appear on Japanese Television #5!

And here comes the first of two bursts of entertainment from the other side of the pond to give you a bit of a laugh after last week's Earth-shattering news. Firstly, too all our readers, thank you for commenting on our videos on Veoh. Unfortunately, we have been dealing with a spammer who has broken through Veoh's blocking controls, and spammed over 100 of our videos up until this morning. Veoh's interface is also broken and not letting us remove some of these spam comments, so we made the executive decision to disable comments on all of the videos that we have uploaded up until now. In a week or so we're going to try again to see if their system is working and if the problem has been fixed. We will keep you posted. Any videos being posted today and tomorrow though, will be free for commenting (unless we see spam). Also don't go asking us the name of a movie when we post the name of the movie trailer in the video title (yes, there were a couple of those), and don't ask us when you're going to see full uploads of movies, we just post commercials, not whole movies.

Which brings us back to the topic at hand - in Japan there is a variety show, SMAP X SMAP that stars the popular J-pop group SMAP. They do a variety of segments on the show featuring celebrities, cooking, and sketch comedy... and it actually isn't as bad as you think it would be! Last Saturday's show featured one of my favorite bands, the Black Eyed Peas. Here are three segments for you all to enjoy! They aren't spaced out like some of the other stars we have posted here, and we kinda wish we had a few more clips of them on Japanese television. Side note: these guys are absolutely amazing live, and if you ever get the chance to see them I highly suggest you do!

Here come the Peas talking to SMAP before their show - is absolutely hilarious!
