As soon as I ran a Super Search on A-M-V.org and discovered that nobody had yet done this song to Code Geass, I was determined to remedy the situation. Cyanna's explanation that this song was actually a common camp song from her childhood (I had never heard of it as such) only made me more determined to do it.
Because honestly, you can't escape the Pizza Hut advertising in Code Geass: it is all over the place. Well, maybe not in Bandai Visual's North American release, but there's still pizza everywhere.
No screenshots I could possibly select would do this video justice. It has to be seen in motion for the full effect. And if you don't know the dance from your childhood, here's the moves, in both German AND English for your convenience! (Scanned straight from the CD-single's insert. Love those wacky Germans.)
At heart, this is really just a fun video. It makes me giggle and want to dance, and I hope it may do the same for you.
Bumper music: "Curtain Rise" from the Melty Blood: Actress Again soundtrack
Credits music: "Trigger Happy" by "Weird Al" Yankovic (see what we did there?)
