The Robotic Dancing Japanese Businessmen Are Back

Directed by former mixed martial arts champion Genki Sudo, the mesmerizing new music video for his band's "2012" features the viral video stars in their signature suits

Directed by former mixed martial arts champion Genki Sudo, the mesmerizing new music video for his band's "2012" features the viral video stars in their signature suits. This time, they take their dystopian dance moves to Mexico. 

In the fighting world, Sudo made a name for himself with his completely over-the-top entrances, complete with music, costumes, and dance. Now his music group, World Order, evokes Jacques Tati's Playtime more than Ultimate Fighting. They are perhaps best known for this video for "Mind Shift," which has over two million views on YouTube.
