My opinion the One in a Million PV...it was not that great. For using the cliched "club scene", one would think he'd dance more... The hood/sunglass combo was the thing that irked me the most. Though I did find it amusing that on the girl's guest list, it lists Yamapi's name first, and the rest are names like : Anthony,Charles, Susan, etc. Made me laugh. As many have mentioned, the song is CATCHY, but doesn't necessarily mean that its phenomenal or even good. Personally, this song and PV are a thumbs down for me.
Auto-tune = Frown Face :(

Welllllllll. In my own opinion.....it reminds me of a certain JE boy lol.
This isnt meant to be mean! but i never really followed yamapis music stuff so, was it always like this or is he the new jin now that jins not in..japan?
I like the pv in general i guess not my ultimate favorite, but i like it (:
ummm....on my final note note Yamapi looks good...haha.

^^I made that post before I listened to the podcast >w<
on a P.S note I showed my little sister the PV (she has watched a few dramas with me that had yamapi in them) and she said "Is that the wig?"
(The wig is her nickname for Jin because well, she thinks he wears a wig! it started with the making of the RESCUE PV)

You guys mentioned something about him capturing Jin's demographic... Once there was that scene with the hoodie pulled down and the giant shades, I actually thought it was Jin for a moment. They hang out too much, maybe.
I liked it, and I liked the concept, but there was something lacking in this PV for me, the difference between "great" and "excellent". Maybe it was the girl only had emotion in one frame, maybe it was how they kepts showing close-ups of other girls before "that front chick is the one" concept really was solidified. I don't know. But for once. I liked the expression on Yamapi's face throughout this, as if his emotions are all subdued and internal, rather than on his sleeve.
This is a personal pet peeve, though, that the girl, and several other people are clearly half-Japanese. I don't often like random Caucasians in Japanese media, particularly when they don't have an obvious reason to be there. I acted with a drama group in Japan once, and I had this problem with them, too; I just hated the idea of speaking English, or being in a scene just for the sake of 'being foreign' and we sometimes had debates about that. It may seem stupid, but I'm somewhat put off by people in America using black people just for the sake of looking "gangsta" or Asians just to look exotic. It can be a powerful image, but it rubs me the wrong way, for some unknown reason. In Yamapi's video, I have decided that the club is in America, thus, all the foreigners or half-Japanese people, but I really don't see why Yamapi can't fall for a Japanese girl, or be cool partying in a Japanese club. (Yeah, this is sounding stupider by the minute...haha)

By the way! I didn't notice right away, with all the news this summer, but there has been NO DRAMA SEGMENT! CRY CRY CRY! Any chance we could squeeze one in sometime? Or even a tanpatsu or movie? I'll even endure someone dying via 24hr terebi if it means we get a drama segment!
(Also, I know you guys mostly cover Johnny's, but since the name is "Japanese" entertainment podcast... anytime you manage to mention Perfume, it makes me happy. I love Perfume with all my heart and soul, and whenever their name comes up in the podcast, it just makes my day. And forget anyone else- Kame should join Perfume; Auto-tune is his best friend!)

The One in a Million PV has a catchy song but I am not sure about the PV. It just doesn't seem like the same Yamapi who writes the sweet and totally innocent journal entries (you can read his diary on facebook, there is a translator who translates them from the cell phone diary). The sunglasses and hood combo take away from his face for me personally, and it definitely reminds me of a certain other JE boy as others have mentioned. I also think the PV is very American, not that that is a bad thing. Another thing is in the PV I couldn't really hear some of the lyrics too well. Yamapi did look good in the PV though, as there were plenty of parts where he didn't wear the hood/glasses combo.

In particular during the performance for music station the sunglasses really killed it for me because you could not see his face under those big glasses till the end when he only took them off for a little bit.

The performance on CDTV was much better and was even better than the PV, he removed the glasses early in it and you could see the emotion on his face which made it all that much better. In general I don't like when a singer covers up with big glasses, a hat or something else so you are unable to see most of their face (so its not just Yamapi here). I could also hear the lyrics much better in this performance.
