I think we can all agree that one of the high points of any Scandal live show is when they perform "Scandal Baby" and Tomomi and Mami try to make Haruna laugh.  

It's funny that after all these years Haruna still cracks a smile; and occasionally the other girls do something that really surprises her, like when they dropped to their knees during one of the shows this summer.

I am curious, does anyone know when Tomomi/Mami started teasing Haruna during this song?

You could see them already doing it in 2010. Check out the ESY! TEMPTATION BOX TOUR 2010 at ZEPP Tokyo DVD release.

In the early days MAMI + TOMOMI would meet in the middle at the start of "Happy ending blabla" but the teasing was probably a fly by the seat of MAMI/TOMOMI's pants moment. They did the meet in the middle when I first saw them in Singapore back in 2013 but I can't remember any teasing - if they had, it would've been obvious. Unless some SH member who attended said shows can tell us otherwise.

By the time I attended the 2015 HELLO WORLD Hall Tour shows in Japan it was the done thing.

To be honest, I wish they'd switch it up somehow so it's not so obviously rehearsed. It was fun in the old days but that was because it wasn't so familiar. These days it seems obvious that Haruna's conjuring up a laugh because she knows she's supposed to. It's not the same as them doing stuff that's *supposed* to be rehearsed, like the choreography in Shoujo S, for example. Laughter is by nature spontaneous and it just doesn't feel spontaneous in Scandal Baby anymore. At least IMO.

On the contrary, I beg to differ. The teasing may well be routine, but not rehearsed as such. I’ve seen them enough times to see variations of how HARU gets teased, and HARU’s reaction varies as well. To the point that she had to push TOMOMI off if the tease really messes up her concentration. In one show during the HW hall tour, MAMI and TOMOMI were doing can-can like kicks in HARU’s direction. At another, one of them would whisper something into HARU’s ear. And often enough, having someone’s chin digging at HARU’s neck is enough to throw her off.

I actually look forward to see that routine just to see what shenanigans the duo will think of next.

Oh, they a did a similar tease to HARU during Your song on nite #1 of the Kanshasai tour in Osaka too.

I think Haruna really does laugh for real during these bits.  If you watch any of the older documentary pieces or TV show appearances you see that when the girls start to get goofy Haruna is always the first one to crack up.  Most of the times she doesn't even participate in the silliness because she's laughing too much.  I think it's easy to amuse her, and I know this personally since I got her to laugh at one of the M&Gs on the "Special Thanks" tour.  

The shtick may be a bit "rehearsed" in that they keep doing it, but I think whatever Mami/Tomomi whispers in her ear might be different each night.  This is what throws Haruna off.

Love digging up old threads haha.

Below is one of the very first interviews I watched of Scandal when I first became a fan in Hello World/Yellow era, and also how I came to like Haruna.

As Don Dio said, laughter just seems to come easily to her. She's always the first to laugh, and laughs the longest and hardest. So while the Scandal Baby teasing is routine, it probably doesn't take much switching up from Tomomi/Mami to make her laugh genuinely.

Which Scandal Baby live teasing is your favourite? (mine is the one from Hello World tour where Haruna had to push Tomomi away twice  Scandal Baby live routine 1f602 ).
