Whoa… now this is something totally out of left field. Here’s a music video of a “Turning Japanese” cover performed by and starring Kirsten Dunst in full cosplay* mode, and directed by none other than McG. Now normally I would be all over this video because of my fascination with the whole cosplay thing, but Kirsten Dunst just doesn’t do it for me. Actually, she’s pretty awful in the video. Now if you swapped Dunst with, let’s say… Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk, well, then I’d be glued to my laptop screen for the rest of the week. Having said that (and I can’t believe I’m saying this), the video is actually really well shot. Enjoy!
* Cosplay, short for “costume play”, is type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan. (Wikipedia)
