HOT PIX YASUSHI AKIMOTO!
AKB48 fans love to look at photobooks and blog photos of their favorite Idols. “Gravure” photos are popular with fans, and those who might want to dream about their favorite members. I’m not in the market for those photobooks, but it got me thinking: Why is it that “The Boss” – Mr. Yasushi Akimoto has never had his own photobook?
Maybe Akimoto-san needs to experience what the girls have to go through! How would he like to have to pose for a gravure photo essay or underwear ads? How would he feel about being ogled by otaku? What if there were music videos with him dancing half-naked on the beach? … it would not be popular .. but maybe he would realize what the girls have to put up with!
Yes, he can write lyrics, and he is a marketing genius, but how would he look in a two-piece?
Well, “Turnabout is fair play!!!”
Ok, Mr Akimoto-san… I’m imagining YOU taking off your shirt … and … and … it is not doing anything for me.
OK, fine. Here is a short slide show. If you can’t write funnier captions than me, you must not be trying.
For more about the Boss, see Akimoto-san’s CNN interview I had previously blogged about “Obama Rejects Keystone Pipeline, Yasushi Akimoto Exploits Girls” linked here.
Starlight: It took me six years to discover the Akimoto songs.
