The Nakajima Dance

Haruo Nakajima: the first man behind the Godzilla suit, Rodan suit, Gaira suit, extra in classic films such as Seven Samurai (1954), a part in Submersion of Japan (1973)... and all around partier. This video was filmed by Brad Thompson (Baradagi) who was with us (August Ragone, Jason Varney, Dave Chapple, Mr. Nakajima’s daughter, Sonoe, and myself) for the Monsterpalooza convention in April 2011.

The convention lasted from April 8-10.

Mr. Nakajima's plane didn't leave until April 12th, so we spent the day doing various photo ops, having lunch, and shopping (check out Mr. Nakajima's cool blue hat!).  Around 3pm or so we hit a Starbucks in Burbank and had our drinks outside. Ke$sha's "Tic Toc" song came on and Mr. Nakajima really liked the beat and, entertainer that he is, started dancing for a laugh (he succeeded!). 

It's a fun video and I hope you all enjoy it as a gift from Brad Thompson and myself this Christmas.

Merry Christmas!
