Video “I’m Into the New…I’m Into that Japanese Funk”

Yesterday, I watched this delirious Corey Haim interview (circa 2080). The video seems meant to assure fans that he’s not high on pills, despite the fact that he’s clearly high on pills. One of many golden moments occurs around the 3 minute mark, when Haim, after demoing his rack of Roland drum machines and synthesizers, declares, mouth all a-twitchy: “As far as what I really like in today’s music…um…I’m Into the New…I’m Into that Japanese Funk.”
Well, we all had a good laugh at Corey’s expense. Then today, I checked in over at the excellent mp3 blog Headphone Sex, and discovered—to my horror—that Haim was right. Prescient even, like Flosstradamus. Right there at the top of the page were the words “Future funk” and this new video, “AZZAZZA,” from Japanese artist Zongamin (he of the dance-floor killer “Bongo Song”):
Still, it is way more groovy than that track Corey was working on.
