Last spurt of pranks!
Another look at Aiba’s startled expression.
While the prankster is blissfully sleeping :P
Some staff goes to wake him up, he took a look around the room, apologised, and left.
A: Isn’t the security too lax?
Next, Aiba is introduced to the new AD, who is 42 years old. I guess normally the ADs are all young chaps, like the one who got scolded just now.
A: You’re 42?
Guy sitting opposite Aiba: Yes, because we know you’ll be interested, so we mentioned his age.
A: Yes, I’m very curious. And then the guy farts again, the moment he bends down.
And he farts again, only this time his fart causes the painting to move.
A: That shocked me! Such a thing can happen?
Aiba puts the painting back into place. Yasashi! (Kind!) As Aiba is leaving, he says to the guy who kept farting all day long: Its better if you go to the toilet.
Guy: I went but…
Aiba: *laughs* Next up is a fake poster photo taking session. Its supposedly for some new year campaign… of course, everything is fake!
The cameraman will give Aiba very detailed instructions on posing like a horse - like lift your leg and pretend you are galloping across a great grassland. And then when the cameraman gets excited during the photoshot, he’ll keep saying great x n and nice x n. And in the end it’ll become grace instead of great.
Sho in studio: The whole meaning has changed! Next up… the director and the AD - yes the same two guys...
They are actually gay lovers, and during the photoshot they will kiss in front of Aiba. Of course its just for the prank :P But i bet Arashi and the rest of the staff are laughing their stomach out watching the duo act like this :P Imagine if your colleague does this for the sake of a prank… i bet it’ll be really hilarious!
The photoshot starts!
Words: Happy New Year - Year 2014
HAHAHA! Aiba you look hilarious :P The cameraman starts giving instructions to Aiba on how his leg should be raised.
And then the fingers must be curled up like this…
Aiba tries his best to follow.
Next the AD and director start their act.
First its just getting feely touchy. And they are standing right behind the cameraman and right in Aiba’s line of sight.
And then they kiss!
Aiba is surprised.
But his surprise soon turns to amusement...
And the duo kisses yet AGAIN. Gosh, those two are really great actors.
Ohno laughs. Meanwhile back in the VTR the cameraman is busy saying ‘greats’
Aiba can’t take is anymore and protested: What were you guys doing?
He apologises immediately and got back to his posing though. The director’s face looks beet red?
The cameraman requests for one last pose, and he requests for Aiba to well… neigh like a horse. The teasing between director and AD duo continues.
I swear Aiba made a roar and not a neigh though :P
Cameraman: How about a hee-heen like a horse?
A: Do i have to say that? A: Now?
Cameraman: Hai… grace!
Cameraman: One more… grace!
The cameraman yells out more graces, while the ‘love making’ between the AD and director goes on.
Sho is beside himself with laughter.
Another pose, and another grace!
If I didn’t know better I’d have thought that poor man is having spasms or something >< XD
And another CG photo of horsey Aiba :P
And they wrap up! Camerman: That was grace!
Aiba gives his blessing to the duo as he leaves the room: I wish you will always be blessed! (rough translation once again)
Aiba bid goodbye to the rest of the staff and leaves the photoshot room.
AND…. prank no. 30 is coming up soon!
The poor boy immediately looks around his seat, he’s getting really worried!
MC: One prank is missing
A: Eh what!
J: So only 29 was done? A: No no no! Even though only 29 were done but isn’t my segment way too long? This wasn’t just one day, it was continuous!
The MC then brings Aiba’s attention to today’s date (as in, the day of filming of course). Which just happen on be Xmas eve and the birthday of our miracle boy.
They all say their congratulations.
The staff has prepared a birthday cake for Aiba! Wait… but why is there a suspicious looking cord dangling out at the side…?
Aiba protests immediately.
Jun invites Aiba to cut the cake.
A: Wait wait wait, what’s with this cord!
Very suspicious indeed...
He’s afraid of the cake blowing up on him anytime!
MC: Can you put the knife in the cake? N: Do it at the count of three!
They ask Aiba to move one step forward towards the cake. But everyone else is standing miles away :P
Jun motions for the guests to move back :P
They are all standing really far back, and asking Aiba to stick his face out. Do i spy a smirk from Ohno? :P
Everyone: Happy birthday!
At the last syllable, Aiba plunges the knife in! He slices right through the cake!
But nothing happens! No flying or exploding cake! Aiba is surprised.
Everyone claps while Aiba is bewildered.
Aiba looks around in confusion.
Celebration over, they head back to take their seats.
Only for Aiba to discover that it was his chair they had planned to rig all along :P
Poor Aiba falls all the way though. Just when he was letting his guard down :P
Prank no. 30! Huge success!
J enthusiastically keeps pointing to Aiba :P
Signboard: Prank Big Success!
A: The preamble was so long! (Actually there was more besides the cake, but it got cut out. It was shown in the next episode of AnShi though)
And there’s the chair with no seat!
Kazu will pick the Arashi member who started started off* again the best. *I have no idea how to properly translate ‘yarinaoshi'
Aiba won the award! And for the 2nd time too!
Aiba was shocked by the sound of streamers being popped, and Nino laughs at AIba’s shocked reaction. Haha, the poor boy had one too many pranks ne?
Aiba motions to complain, Nino: This is different, this is different (it wasn’t meant to be a prank)
A: That wasn’t no. 31 was it? Mou, I’ve had enough of this!
Poor boy, I feel you! Sho thanks the guest, and then: This year’s Arashi ni Shiyagare…
Arashi: We ask for your favour!
And that’s it! The end! At long last! Gosh, even the last ten minutes took me a good hour to finish… alright, shall head off to bed now. I feel like a zombie already ><
