Have you heard of this show? It’s a variety show by… erm… a bunch of comedians… and from the little bit that i've watched of it, they do all sort of random stuff like spoofs of dramas and movies (they did one for kagi heya too), and then there's the chameleon section, which i really love and is what I'm going to review today. They appeared on AIba's Last Hope too and Nino did a reverse chameleon to promote his Platinum Data! It was nino's stint which made me want to review this show actually, and i like to have things 'complete' so if i was doing nino's than I'd have to start from arashi's very first appearance on the show… which is this!
Ok more about this chameleon thing. Basically a comedian, a regular from this variety, he'll dress up and pretend to be one of the staff on the set of the drama! then he'll infiltrate the scene of the drama, and he's awarded money for doing actions listed out before the infiltration starts. E.g. he may be award $$ for sitting on a chair in the drama set, $$$ for talking with the actors/actresses, $$$ for doing the 'arashi arashi for dream' dance move (since its an arashi member's drama after all, the list of actions is different each time and specific to the drama at hand.) Of cos none of the staff on the drama set is told about this infiltration. The chameleon keeps doing his thing till he gets busted. Oh he gets some $ for every second he stays undercover too… and at the end of his stint they see how much $$$ he accumulates and see if he breaks the record. I think the chameleon only really gets his hands on the money if he breaks the record or something… but that's not matter to us isn't it? :P What matters is that its quite a hilarious segment XD
Here goes! Of cos I'm just reviewing Ohno's part, so its not that long.
video from tuduo, with chinese subs <3
So yup, today the chameleon is going to infiltrate Kagi Heya drama set, the difficultly is rated at lvl 40, so every second of infiltrate he will get 400 yen.
yup, kagi heya!
nice HQ video eh? i <3!
Ok so that guy on the right… he's going to infiltrate the drama set! as we know, oh-chan is the main actor of kagi heya!
it’s the first time ohno appears on picaru!
the chameleon says he's a little scared, becos just two weeks ago, he met with ohno because of work… (so he might get recognised easily!)
and here's the task list! ah its been translated to chinese already haha.. and i shall re-translate to english.
- act like and director and do the director pose (er, hard to explain, but i remember he did this later on so we'll see it) - 3000 yen
- hum A.RA.SHI 3000 yen
- Dance the dance steps of A.RA.SHI 5000 yen
- Sneeze loudly 7000 yen
- fall down suddenly 7000 yen
- sit on the chair of the set 10,000 yen
- say 'What to do?' 10,000 yen
- play with the props on the set 20,000yen
- touch the actor/actress 30,000yen
- talk with the actor/actress 30,000yen
- give acting advice to the actor/actress 80,000yen
- get filmed during the test shots, or actual filming shots 100,000yen
Yup, that's the entire list!
in Japanese, if you prefer XD
ah that… that's the 3000yen director pose.
additionally… its not in the list but, if chameleon can call ohno by another arashi member's name, he gets 50,000yen! E.g. "MatsuJun? Ah sorry, Ohno-san?"
If he calls ohno 'Soubu-san' he gets 50,000yen too
because ohno is the leader of arashi… if he asks ohno about arashi's future, that's 200,000yen!
They got help from the drama's producer...
to set up 6 cameras as shown above!
On top of that, in order to understand easily the movement of the actors and actress, there's a camera set up in the greenroom as well!
in the studio, there's a camera set up under the ruse of filming the making.
and now oh-chan makes his entrance to the set
the chameleon enters
enomoto's basement office is a small and crowded set, can the chameleon infiltrate the scene successfully?
C for chameleon enters the set, and the timer starts!
C enters holding a script or something, to make himself blend in better. the moment he enters the actual filming starts! (for the drama)
without knowing anything, C must be quite nervous…
C is still hanging ard just outside the set.
C enters the set.
right after that ohno exits the set.
and C exits the set and stands right beside ohno!
O is engrossed in checking the earlier shot he doesn’t notice C at all!
than O walks off, none the wiser XD
C enters the set again! If he is discovered by anyone, even the staff, its Game Over! From the mc, we learn that the staff this time… more them half of them worked on another drama that this same C infiltrated last time… so that increases the chance of the staff recognising him!
if any of the staff says 'oh its you again?' then he losses!
Ohno enters the set once more!
O passes RIGHT in FRONT of C!
the MCs start screaming in fear of C getting exposed.
MC: from the looks of it C didn’t realise O is there at all!
So near yet so far! haha!
MC: Ohno's clothes are not very eye catching either… it ends up looking like ohno is the one infiltrating the set instead!
MC: It’s the reverse!
C: yabai (oh no!)
MC: Seems like he finally realised it! C tries to use his hang to cover his face haha. but ohno is just engrossed with looking at some props on the set XD
then ohno gets called to take the next shot, and C is safe - at least for now
the other guy in checked shirt, he's the assistant of the chief director of the previous drama C infiltrated.
the rehearsal starts!
with C standing in the set like this!
the chief director's assistant turns around! Dangerous! but it seems like he didn’t see/recognise C
C gets close to Oh-chan once more!
he sits down on the set just as Ohno is called to the side for shooting.
10,000yen! too bad ohno moved away haha. else it would have made a nice picture :P
he does the director pose next! 3000yen!
again! actual filming!
they are really close now!
C decides to retreat for now! He retreats to the back but...
suddenly, somehow… the spot lights turn on, on him!
just when he thought it was safe, suddenly the lights were turned on! he moves to somewhere else… darker.
He gets close to Ohno again. Oh-chan is happily examining the scale model.
and then! C makes conversation with ohno! C: makes you want to keep looking at it right? (the scale model)
O: yes i can keep looking at it forever
haha the shy? 'i got caught' smile of ohno XD
Ohno continues staring at the model, without noticing C at all XD
MC: if this goes on he can even ask the 200,000yen question! (on arashi's future)
C: Is it made using tweezers? How did they make it?
No reply from the quiet ohno. MCs get very nervous and scared!
O: sugoi! feels like there's a lot of knowledge hidden in this!
MC: wow! conversely ohno starts talking with C! just how nice is he?
C continues talking with O, but then the assistant! He is staring at C!
C starts talking with O about some thin wire… while the assistant is staring and staring!
But ohno? happily staring at the scale model XD
suddenly everyone is staring at C.
O and C are happily discussing about the scale model.
very animated talk...
then Ohno leaves the set… C follows.
C follows… he stands outside the greenroom...
he enters the greenroom...
oh-chan enters the greenroom as well!
C runs off...
he waits outside the greenroom
toda erika appears!
C follows toda-san to the studio.
ohno enters the set too, everyone is on the set now!
C stands there looking at the script.
then he speaks to the actress: i heard its all made of paper.
Toda-san joins in the convo…
another 30,000yen for him!
and then suddenly! Today: there there there!
Game Over! The MCs go down to the drama set
Ohno looks stunned.
O: What? Really?
Ohno finally realises!
O: i thought u looked like him!
O drags the C out.
O: i thought his chin looked alike!
Turns out that Toda is a big fan of picaru, and she felt that they would definitely come to infiltrate the kagi heya set, so she was waiting for them to appear!
the other actress didn’t realise it though...
back at the picaru studio, C: if it was just ohno, i have the confidence to keep talking on and on...
the rest comments that they were looking forward to seeing him ask ohno about arashi's future :P and that was all!
Video was cut off here, so no idea how much $ he earned in the end :P Hope you enjoyed it!
