Super Terrific Japanese Thing: Giant Pikachus Dance to “Straight Outta Compton”


I have no idea if this really is actually clever marketing for the NWA biopic in Japan, though the source says it is. But do we need a reason to enjoy some of the most “dangerous” music of my high school years enjoyed by a Pokemon best known for being yellow and cute?

I think not. And I learned something.

I never knew there was a “clean” version of the song. “From the stupid dope gang with a attitude”? Well, it beats Ice Cube’s other attempts at being family friendly.

Straight Outta Pika

Gotta love Japan's Straight Outta Compton movie marketing. These Pikachus are so G, yo.
