From Joe Sabia — the videographer who made Tupac in Kazakhstan and this morning's Thankful Oscars video — comes this wonderful rendition of Weezer's Can't Stop Partying featuring random people from Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima. Sabia took a trip to Japan in November, and over the course of six days, showed the below note to folks he met on the street.
"It basically says hey, how are you, I'm doing a project and I'd really like for you to repeat what I say in English," he tells me. "A United Airlines stewardess translated it for me just before I got off the plane."
Sabia hopes to do this in all the countries he visits from now on, although he doesn't yet know where he's going next.
