Last year, a lot of people in Japan danced to the choreography in the music video for AKB48’s hit single, “Koi Suru Fortune Cookie.” The song is from the group’s recent album, The Next Footsteps, and was one of the most-viewed music videos on YouTube in the past year.

In the video, the group performs in front of the theatre of one of the group’s sister groups, HKT48, for some of their fans. The group teaches the dance to a variety of people including students, wrestlers, office workers, an orchestra, and more.

The song has a 1970’s disco sound in it, which is one of the reasons why this song and music video are great.
