Amid heightened tensions between Japan and her two neighboring countries – S. Korea and China – one man was quick to take action, proving that not all are nationalistic douchebags. I am, of course, speaking of mixed-martial-artist-turned-buddhist-internet-dancing-sensation Genki Sudo. In his new video “Permanent Revolution,” he and his compatriots dance their way to Asia where they spread their message.
Sudo is well known for his timely music videos. Just 1 week after the March 11th earthquake and tsunami, Sudo uploaded “Machine Civilization,” a catchy electronic tune in signature Sudo style that shows support for Japan. “Any accident is neutral,” he says. “Although we are straying around this deep darkness, I believe we can get through anything when each of us can let go of our fear and face things positively… The darkness just before the dawn is deepest. So, we do rise up together to greet the brilliant morning truly coming for the human beings.”
