The 'Permanent Revolution' video features a popular Japanese group 'World Order' in a fake slow-motion video.
The group seems to specialize in fake slow-motion running as proven by their impeccable timing, which most likely came from extended hours of practicing. One of the main choreographers is actually a group member, Genki Sudo, who is a former mixed martial artist and kickboxer.
Due to the recent territorial disputes arising from Japan and China over the Senkaku -- or Diaoyu -- Islands, World Order's video is a quirky but inspirational take on peace, stating that "We are all one" at one point in the video. The countries can argue over who has legal rights and ownership to the islands but they should try to find a calmer and more peaceful way of settling things.
