SCANDAL appears in Fender Japan's "Pride of Made in Japan" video along with singer/actor Miyavi and speaks in English!



Ours is a small and a beautiful island.
This is what we have.
Four seasons deepen our sensitivities.
The pursuit of mastery.
An endless definement of skills.
Originality has been in us throughout all time.
Creation with courage.
No fear of the unknown.
This is who we are,
And this is our message.

At first, I wondered why RINA was included. Although not having a sig series with Fender, I finally remembered that she owns/plays a Tele! Good enough, I guess.

Nice catch - the video's only like 3+ hours old on YouTube.

I'm not entirely convinced that's true. The original source for that info seems to have come from RINA herself (link), but it definitely sounds like she was joking. She basically said, "Didja know that the guitar solo in 'KOSHI-TANTAN' was messily played by RINA? lol"




Back to the video. All of the band's pronunciations were pretty impressive! IMO, as a native English speaker, I think HARU's pronunciation was by far the best; it was very clear, easy to understand, and she hardly had any accent. The English classes seemed to have paid off for her, but not to the same extent for MAMI lol. I would rank them from best to less-than-best in this order:

1. HARU
2. TOMO
3, 4. MAMI, RINA (tie)

That was nice. They do sound very natural. Why do I remember HARUNA blog posting about going to English class?

I thought they were there to talk about their signature models but seems like no. Still a great video, everyone's English is pretty accurate here.

Great! To be fair Mami's first part was kind of a tongue twister for a non-english speaker.

I see the video is also hosted on the Fender Japan site and its Twitter feed.
https://shop.fender.com/ja-JP/made-in-japan-2018-limited-collection
https://twitter.com/Fender_Official/status/989704481070833665

Poking around the site I see they have launched a Japan only 32 page printed newsletter/booklet with original content, "Fender Music KK Japan, part of Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) one of the world’s leading musical instrument manufacturers, marketers and distributors, announced today the official launch of its first, free publication, #FenderNewspaper available now at over 300 Fender authorized dealers and music studios." USG is on the first cover. Perhaps SCANDAL will appear at some point ...

MAMI's first part was a bit hard to understand, but it also seems like the hardest line to say if you don't really speak English. HARUNA was definitely the best in pronunciation.

This is cool on a number of levels.  It's great they're heavily featured in promotion spot for one of the most iconic guitar companies ever.  Plus I don't think I have ever heard all four of them speaking English at the same time.

That would be singer/actor Miyavi. His good pronunciation is probably due to the fact that he's been in American movies, is married to a Japanese-American former singer, and also currently lives in LA.

Been watching this again. And again. The whole video makes my neck hairs somewhat stand on end.

And my right hand clicking on eBay looking for "MiJ Fender".

Fender should attempt to retain the guitar-playing SCANDAL members as endorsers.

Fender seems to have endorsed Scandal for years, starting with their Squier Signature models, and now their Fender American Signature models. The company has had a strong presence, starting with Bill Schultz bought it from CBS, and has endorsed many Japanese guitar players, including Inoran from Luna Sea and Ken from L'Arc-En-Ciel. And now Miyavi and Scandal

The Fender MAMI/HARU/TIMO signature guitars are Made in Japan. Hence, the video.

For that matter, Mami's Gretsch White Falcon is also made in Japan (most high-end Gretsch guitars are made in Japan, with the Custom Shop ones being the only ones made in the US; incidentally, Fender Musical Instruments Company also handles manufacturing and marketing for Gretsch)
