Mira caught behind the scenes of J-Pop

    By way of the very talented Daito Manabe it’s come to our attention that Mira has been spotted in the wild. It has made its way across the Pacific and into a nonspeaking role in a teaser video released to promote a single by the Japanese pop supergroup Perfume.

    Cycling ’74 did not pay for this product placement, but we are thrilled to be associated in some small way with this production. As you can see over Daito's shoulder, Mira was used to control lighting on the set during rehearsal and filming.
    The final music video, available here does not feature Mira, but it does have some touchscreen-inspired decor that I suppose reflects back on whatever Mira’s imagined role in the production might have been. Oh, and there’s also an extremely catchy song, if we are to judge from the 1.6 million views as of this writing.
