VIDEO: The Chinese Hopping Vampires vs Japanese Idols PV You've Been Waiting For!

Haohao! Kyonshi Girl premieres October 12 on TV Tokyo

BEWARE! Japan is preparing to be assaulted by Chinese hopping vampires in the form of the nutty new comedy action TV Tokyo show Haohao! Kyonshi Girl.


A "kyonshi" is, of course, the Japanese word for "jiang shi", the terrifying hopping vampires of Chinese folklore as seen in such highly-acclaimed masterpieces of cinema like Mr. Vampire and Encounters of the Spooky Kind.



Anyway, to help build hype for the new Kyonshi Girl  TV show (above), Japanese idol unit 9nine, who also star in the program, have unleashed a mind-melting music video that incorporates 8-bit graphics, chip tunes sounds, hopping vampires dancers, audience members, even a hopping vampire DJ in to the hyperactive mix.


You might even need to slap a paper spell on your forehead to stop yourself from hopping up and down after watching it below!
