    Strange Club Disney Video

    I was looking up instructions for the Mickey Mouse March ParaPara (don't ask), when I found this video that apparently dates back a good seven years ago during Club Disney's first run.

    Looks like a promotional thing, but it's still a rather strange video. Have a look.

    EDIT: Looks like I found something that's even weirder... or just play brave of the two featured in the video.

    WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!!
    Those two tapes are a find!!! "NIght of Fire" OMG!!! Best song on Super Dancing Mania. I think that guy dancing in the school video is one of the singers from the japanese boyband SMAP. But not sure...

    As for the 2nd video... I have to hand it to those two doing the ParaPara in the middle of the most stuckup Disney resort on Earth. I am sure the guests were looking at them going.. WTF!?!?!? ...and he looks familiar... not only is he a cute cub... I think he used to dance at TDR...

    Joe? Help me here...

    Fun videos. The first is indeed with Takuya Kimura of SMAP. It is an old promotional segment of a SMAPxSMAP variety show during the big parapara boom. In the first video, at a parapara instructional school (the students are seeing dancing it while singing "Happy Birthday") the little girl is given her own figure of the school principal, the best dancer in the school. However, she says that she doesn't want it because her favorite dancer is MICKEY.

    Disney/OLC have done these promotional specials for major events such as "Cinderellabration", "Aladdin's Whole New World", "5th Anniversary", etc. Actually, the DisneySea Dream stories have been broadcast at times during the past year.

    That second video must have been done recently right? It was funny. :-)

    I was looking for that kind of reaction from the background guests, but most of them either walked by them or had their backs against the camera. I was also half expecting to see them bait some characters into trying to dance with them in the video, but I guess seeing a grown man wearing a Mouse Ear headband designed for girls would cause anyone to rethink what's going on.

    Frankly, I would have joined in.

    Don't know. There is clear indication that the Hand and Hat are still up when they go to Epcot and MGM, but given how long those have been around, it could be as far back as when Animal Kingdom opened.

    EDIT: Wacthed the video again, and yes, it had to have been recent. They show Everest in the background at one point, so it was some time after Everest was open and after the mirror was taken down.

    As far as the guy goes, TDLFAN, the quality stinks, but his movements remind me of your Mr. Stud from the actual Club Disney show. And don't they sometimes get their pool of talent from Florida?

    When they can dance professionally? yes. But if they only "move well"? NO.

    Yes, it was. You can see the "Dream Along with Mickey" set pieces o the castle stage... so it was done after this past October 2006.

    Re: Strange Club Disney Video

    Micechat NEEDS to do a video, similar to the 2nd video!
    I can see a bunch of mice chatters in front of the DL castle,
    and other place throughout the DL resort (and of course
    we would need to add in a second or two of "your picture
    has dropped into another dimension!" hahahahaha)

    That was really funny, . . . and although the picture
    quality wasn't good, it was edited very well! Cute
    rendition of the MMC march.

    And on the 1st video, omg, that must be Goofy's pimp outfit!
    hahahahahaha

    I TOTALLY loved the videos. Thanks for finding/sharing them. Doesn't watching them make you want to go to TDR/DL/DW and bust out parapara moves?!? (I've never, ever parapara danced and would love to now seeing these!)

    Not really. At least not in public if I don't know what I am doing like those two.

    Besides, ParaPara is good cardio. Same for DDR, despite some opinions.

    Re: Strange Club Disney Video

    I've seen both of those videos before. In fact, the one with Takuya has been linked by me in a couple other threads in the Disneyland section. I just love these videos.

    I imported an Asian PS2 and Para Para Paradise (with the controller of course!!) last year and have had so much fun with it ever since (the Mesa Golfland no longer has their PPP or Keyboardmania machines). I don't know why, but I've never been able to learn Mickey Mouse March. I can do Ale' Japan, Bandolero Comanchero, デラックス/Deluxe (despite poor butt wiggling ability), あいしあってます?/Aishiattemsu? (see Deluxe), Dynamite Rave-Super Euro Ver, and Kingdom of Rock, but I've never, ever been able to pick up Mickey Mouse March (Velfarre 2000 is out of my league).

    Thanks for confirming the western reaction to this kind of thing.

    On that note, TDLFAN, you were right (as usual)! Though it would be funny to see the ParaPara boom happen here in the states and have all the Japanese laugh at us like they did when Power Rangers came over and got so huge for that short while in the 90s.
