Utada Hikaru's Tetris puh-Ownage on Google Video

(Originally 30 December 2005)

I'm pretty impressed that people are uploading UH appearances and PV's to Google Video. And the appearances are decently clipped to the relevant bits for indexing by whoever submitted the video, which is a good idea.

Not much to say about the Tetris clip, except that she's blazing fast compared to the competition. In these kinds of game shows they invite celebrities to compete against the show hosts in three (I think) challenges. They range from video games, to ping-pong, to parallel parking. Typically the celebrities win, otherwise it sort of looks bad. But there's no doubt that Hikaru is just better at Tetris than Matsumoto, who looks to be the sore loser.
