This animation video“Furiko (Pendulum)” is one of the most watched Japanese videos online in these years. This is not just one of numerous popular videos in the world. Tekken(鉄拳), Japanese comedian, created this “video” with a 1038-page flip book illustrated page-by-page by himself. Check his brilliant work with your own eyes. There is no dialogue at all, so you can enjoy the video even if you don’t understand Japanese.
This well-crafted clip soon caught much attention in Japan and it didn’t take long until it became a massive hit. Surprised by its quality, the British band Muse made this video as their official video for the album Exogenesis Part 3 (Redemption) in 2012. Muse liked his work and asked him to create another video for the promotion of their single Follow Me. Not as popular as Furiko yet it’s certainly worth watching too.
