Want to watch Japanese pretty boys play with the Nintendo 3DS?

If so, watch the "CM" videos that were uploaded to Nintendo of Japan's website last night. (Here.)

Granted, it's possible you won't find all (or any) of the guys in the videos "pretty." (The second one from the left in the photo below looks a bit lesbian-ish to me, for instance. Not that there's anything wrong with that!)

Regardless, I believe these "boys" are Japanese celebrities, but I couldn't tell you their names or why they're famous.

If you'd rather watch a video that, you know, actually shows (some) of what Nintendo's upcoming portable system is capable of, watch the video at the bottom of the same web page.

Eh...they're all a little lesbianesque. But I'll watch, because I'm thirsty for any and all info about the new system.

Yeah, you're right about them all looking a little lesbianesque. Oh, and the one all the way to the right looks a little ... unhinged.

That is the group "Arashi" who are insanely popular here. I don't count myself as a fan, but then I've never gone for Japanese music or the whole "boy/girl band" genre. If you've seen the Clint Eastwood film "Letters from Iwo Jima", one of them plays the main character. I forget which one. Maybe the lesbian one, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the clarification, Sean! I have to say, I find it a bit scary that three members of this boy band seem to have the same hairstyle. What's up with that?
