Many visual bands nowadays have an own youtube channel to promote their music by uploading song samples, comments, previews or even full music videos. In most of the cases, this is their channel's only purpose, however, there are a few exceptions: Some labels and bands sometimes grab their own cameras to record themselves doing funny challenges, showing you around backstage or talking about all kinds of things while wearing no make-up or elaborate costumes.
Of course, most of those videos are in Japanese, but nevertheless there are bands that definitely won't fail to make you smile and laugh despite the language gap.
Below, you can find little introductions of four channels of bands and labels doing a good job to entertain their youtube audience with their self-made videos. Have fun watching!
1. Resistar Records sending their bands back to school (Blu-BiLLioN, DOGinThePWO, BugLug)
Resistar Records are testing their band's basic knowledge for the third year already. All members of Blu-BiLLioN, DOGinThePWO and BugLug have to take a test and solve exercises in kanji reading, history, translating sentences from Japanese to English and so on.
The funniest answers are being displayed on a screen after the test is over and at the very end the scores of all participants will be published revealing who did fine and who has had his difficulties with the selected questions.
Moreover, former CindyKate vocalist Yuui is taking part as a special guest this time, so make sure you don't miss an episode of this year's season!
