Ami and Yumi go to the movies

For some reason, this is big news in Japan today.

PUFFY have gone to see "Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny". Yes, the 2-year old Jack Black movie that's just now coming out in Japan. Why is this news? I don't know. But it's all over the entertainment news sites. This one, for example. Here's another. And another (login required for that one).

Ok, obviously, this was a well-orchestrated media event. And I guess PUFFY are as good a choice as any to be the focus of it.

Here's the gist of one of the more amusing/interesting of these articles:

* Ami and Yumi are never interested in the same guy. Their "types" are completely different. (I don't really know what either of their types are, though.) This came up because a reporter asked each one "who is your favorite in the movie, Jack or Kyle"? Ami answered Jack, which meant Yumi had to answer Kyle. But she couldn't, so she asked "just two choices??" She answered Jack too, but she wasn't happy about it.

* Along those same lines of questioning, they were both asked who their favorite Rock Gods are. Ami answered the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Yumi answered Saito Kazuyoshi. (She worked with him on "Rakuda no Kuni", aka "Cameland".)

More on this breaking story as it develops. Perhaps Ami and Yumi will stay at the theater and see another movie!
