BKA48 reveals music video for “Haste to Waste”

6 Jun

Kawaei Rina

 

A PV full of fun and laughter from the members of BKA48! Even though this song is silly, the music video delivered a cute and sweet image of Kawaei Rina, who also happens to be the center. Touted as the next generation ace in AKB48, Kawaei Rina has been enjoying increased media attention in Japan ever since she was crowned the dumbest member in  Mecha Mecha Iketeru(a variety show). This prompted Akimoto Yasushi(producer of AKB groups) to form the unit BKA48 and have them release a song. Watch the video for yourself to see the rest of the members!

Translation of the lyrics:

You must be joking
You must be joking
How could i be the dumb one?
The dumbest amongst us, is definitely not me!

You must be joking
You must be joking
How could my feet smell?
I worked hard so there’s just too much sweat.

“America is made up of 99% electricity.”
Isn’t it weird grammatically?
Edison didn’t say so!

Kawaei, someone is calling you
Like he’s given up on you.
The bad marks on your test
Are being pointed out with his finger.

Kawaei, you saved everyone.
There’s no one with marks lower than yours.
Guarding the lowest borderline of intelligence
Oh you dumb center!

8×2=17?
8×4=27?
Isn’t it abit off?
If you had a cellphone, you’d have gotten it right.

8×6=46
8×8=62
8×9 should be 73?
Even if i memorize the 8x multiplication table, i wouldn’t be able to remember.

If i were to to translate “Haste makes Waste”,
That would mean “Haste and Waste became good friends”! (What is this?!”)

Kawaei, if i call you like this,
It means some level of respect.
Choosing you for this position,
Suits you more than anything.

Kawaei, you legendary girl,
Even if you can’t study, you still live happily.
Aaa, you dumb center!

The most important thing in life,
Is not how smart you are.
If you can give courage to people around you,
A dumb person can also help others.

Kawaei, someone is calling you
Like he’s given up on you.
The bad marks on your test
Are being pointed out with his finger.

Kawaei, you saved everyone.
There’s no one with marks lower than yours.
Guarding the lowest borderline of intelligence
Oh you dumb center!

In today’s Ichiban Song show, BKA48, the unit made up of the dumbest members in AKB,  gave their first TV performance of their song “Haste to Waste”. “Haste to Waste” is a song about the silly answers given by Kawaei Rina during atest taken in Mecha Mecha Iketeru(a variety show). In the test, Kawaei Rina was asked to translate the english phrase “Haste makes Waste”. She thought that Haste and Waste were actually names and translated it as “Haste and Waste became good friends”, drawing laughter for her silly answer. The production team then made 2 dolls (nicknamed Haste and Waste) to accompany her as she serves the center position in BKA48.

Pls watch on for the other baka members:  Minegishi Minami, Kojima Haruna, Takahashi Minami, Kashiwagi Yuki, Sashihara Rino, Shimazaki Haruka.
