Director McG created a music video for the Tate Gallery’s Pop Life exhibit by Takashi Murakami who is showcasing the otaku phenomenon in Japan.
Otaku (plural noun)
In Japan) young people who are highly skilled in or obsessed with computer technology to the detriment of their social skills.
The Akihabara Majokko Princess video features Kirsten Dunst strutting around the streets of Akihabara (a major shopping area for electronic, computer, anime, and otaku goods) singing a cover of The Vapors’ “Turning Japanese”.
