He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.

J-Pop Illustrated

Not long ago, I was trying to explain to a friend what Japanese Pop (or J-Pop for short) was like. J-Pop is nasty, nasty stuff that makes you want to cut your ears off. It usually adheres to the following criteria:

1) Sung by a nobody who you'll have forgotten by next week.
2) Usually an insipid song that has no redeeming musical features - stuck in your head today, stuck in the bin tomorrow.
3) Must have cutesy, cuddly cartoon creatures in the video.
4) Must include randomly borrowed English phrases in the lyrics.

Anyway, here's one that fills the criteria nicely. Strangely enough though, "Ken" looks English.
